Machine Shop. Performance Objectives. Basic Course.
Hilton, Arthur; Lambert, George
Several intermediate performance objectives and corresponding criterion measures are listed for each of 13 terminal objectives for a high school basic machine shop course. The materials were developed for a 36-week course (2 hours daily) designed to enable students to become familiar with the operation of machine shop equipment, to become familiar with those basic skills and trade technology required by the machinist in doing machinist work, and to diagnose and solve technical problems as expected of a competent journeyman machinist. Titles of the 13 performance objectives are the following: Safety (housekeeping, equipment, clothing, handtools); measurement (micrometer, calipers, scale, vernier); layout (centering); lubrication (machines, handtools); benchwork (chipping, filing, scraping); cutting tools; surface grinder; grinder (hand); drill press; power hacksaw; band saw; blueprint reading; and lathe. Also included for some of the intermediate performance objectives are notes on teaching methods and media selection. (This manual and 54 others were developed for various secondary level vocational courses using the System Approach for Education (SAFE) guidelines). (JT)
