User's Guide for Competency-Based Administrator Education Materials.
Finch, Curtis R.; Novak, Kathy
One of a set of seven competency-based instructional materials (six learning modules and one user's guide) designed for the inservice training and improvement of local level vocational education administrators, this user's guide provides directions for persons supervising the use of learning modules and is directed toward helping the user become familiar with the modules. Content is presented in six chapters. Chapter l, Overview, is a general discussion of the meaning of competency-based administrator education (CBAE), including how it differs from a traditional program and the need for CBAE materials. Chapters 2 through 4 discuss the modules in terms of the development process, format, and objectives (for each module). A noted feature of the modules' format is the opportunity provided for exemption testing, which allows the learner to make decisions and to self-pace, and also serves as a learner diagnostic tool. Chapter 5 discusses five curricular arrangements that are appropriate settings for using the CBAE materials: preservice (on-campus), preservice (on-campus) internship, inservice (off-campus) combined with internship or externship, externship, and competency-based arrangement. The final chapter discusses student orientation to CBAE. A rank order of administrator competencies and examples of how CBAE modules might be selected for an inservice program are appended. (SH)
