Competency-Based Curriculum for Articulated Programs in Office Occupations. A Study for the Articulation of Competency-Based Curricula for the Coordination of Vocational-Technical Education Programs in Louisiana. Final Report. Volume VI.
Louisiana State Dept. of Education, Baton Rouge. Div. of Vocational Education.
The curriculum guide for office occupations is one of five guides written and field tested in a project to develop statewide articulated competency-based curricula in selected vocational education programs. For each of the 32 job titles listed in the guide, the overall goal, specific tasks, and performance objectives and criterion-referenced measures are detailed. Comprising the major portion of the document is a sample learning packet developed for the sales clerk job. A student packet and instructor packet each contains the prerequisites, materials and/or equipment needed, and activities for each of the stated performance objectives. Forms, illustrations, and tests are included. The instructor packet also contains the test answer keys. Information for the job analyses in the guide was obtained from the State Civil Service Manual, Dictionary of Occupational Titles, and various business sources. After establishing the relevancy of the tasks and validity of the performance objectives by questionnaires sent to potential employers, instructors should be able to use the job analyses to develop curriculum and materials to be used in training students for entry level positions.
