Competency-Based Health Education--Writing Competencies the Easy Way.
Sutherland, Mary; Hemmer, William
This paper is designed to help health educators assess competencies their students must demonstrate to obtain provisional or permanent teacher certification. Four components are covered: (1) the skills, knowledge, and attitudes expected of the professional; (2) assessment procedures; (3) assessment conditions; and (4) assessment standards indicating that expected skills, knowledge, and attitudes have been obtained. Format suggestion tables for the writing of competencies are presented. By using key words or phrases, the health educator can select the appropriate key words that describe the desired knowledges and skills and attitudes, select an assessment standard and condition, and finally determine an appropriate assessment standard. The competency may then be written in behavioral terms that are easily measurable for the student. (JD)
