Part 1 describes the competency identification phase of the handicapped education component including review of related research, report of a questionnaire survey of Florida vocational educators applying for funds for programs for the handicapped, findings (competencies with mean importance ratings), and conclusions. Part 2 describes the procedures for identifying and validating of specific criteria for assessing mastery of the competencies and lists the criteria in a 12-page table under 90 competency statements grouped into the following categories: (1) Program planning, development, and evaluation, (2) instructional planning, (3) teaching methods-media, (4) student evaluation, (5) management, (6) guidance, (7) school-community relations, (8) student organizations, (9) instructor's professional role and development, and (10) unique competencies.
