Florida State Univ., Tallahassee. Program of Vocational Education.
One of a series of nine reports of Project ACTIVE (Attaining Competence for Teaching in Vocational Education), this report focuses on the criteria for assessing mastery of the professional competencies (skills) important to vocational educators involved in research and evaluation. An overview of competency-based vocational teacher education (CBTE) and of the Florida exemplary CBTE project is provided as introduction. Part 1 describes the competency identification phase of the leadership in research and evaluation component including review of related research; report of a questionnaire survey of 214 representative teacher educators, county vocational directors, administrators, supervisors, coordinators, teachers, and national research personnel in Florida; the 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 6-page table under 54 competency statements grouped into the following categories: (1) Review and analysis of completed research, (2) conducting research, (3) evaluation, and (4) management. It is recommended that the assessment criteria be reviewed and revised to fit the needs of particular preservice or inservice programs designed to prepare or upgrade persons involved in conducting, evaluating, disseminating, or applying research and evaluation in vocational education. Appendixes contain instruments used in the study. A bibliography is included. (TA)
