Speary, William A.
A project is reported which accomplished the following objectives: (1) Developed greater awareness among high school distributive education teacher-coordinators and State and area staff toward the competency based concept as applied to the Texas DECA (Distributive Education Clubs of America) Association's competitive events program, (2) identified major research and development efforts that focused upon the competency-based approach in distributive education, (3) prepared a core of 10 teacher-coordinators to provide leadership in their area as the competency-based competitive events are implemented on a full-scale basis at the area and State levels, (4) developed a philosophy, implementation plan, and system of recognition for the events program in Texas, (5) developed competency-based competitive events for 10 occupational categories at two levels: Master employee and manager-owner, and (6) consulted with State and area staff in operating competency-based competitive events at the 1977 area and State conferences in five occupational categories at one level, master employee. About one-sixth of the report consists of the project overview; lists of recommendations on philosophy, operations, recognition, and event identification system; a list of the project staff; guidelines for writing of competitive events; and thoughts on evaluation instruments for the DECA experimental competitive events. The major portion of the document is the competency-based event summaries developed in 10 occupational areas: (1) Apparel and accessories, (2) automotive, (3) food marketing, (4) food service, (5) general merchandising, (6) hardware, (7) home furnishings, (8) petroleum, (9) retail trade, other, and (10) wholesaling. A total of 200 events are included, one for 10 different instructional areas at two levels (master employee and manager-owner) within each occupational area. Each summary includes a list of competencies the event evaluated (knowledge, skills, and attitudes) and a description of the event. (JT)
