Competencies in the Administration of Community Education Programs: A Project to Assess Needed Competencies.
Miller, Brian; McCleary, Lloyd E.
CCBC Notebook, v7 n1 pp21-39 Oct 1977
The project described in this article was intended to assess needed competencies in community education administration by fulfilling two primary objectives. First, role descriptions were to be identified in terms of task areas, competencies, and competency indicators for each of four administrative roles: superintendent, district coordinator, principal, and community education director. Second, perceptions were collected on how competencies might be acquired and what performance levels are needed. In a series of three workshops, superintendents, coordinators, principals, and directors helped to develop real and ideal profiles for each administrative role. The Quadrant Assessment Model provided the basic research design. Outcomes of this project emerged in two primary forms--product outcomes and process outcomes. The resulting prioritizing of competencies indicated preservice and inservice education needs for administrators. The authors believe that the measurement tools developed in this study have potential application in performance assessment, role definition, program planning and assessment, research and development, and certification assessment.
