Job Cluster for Manufacturing Occupations at the High School Level. Final Report.
New Jersey State Dept. of Education, Trenton. Div. of Vocational Education.
A project was designed to develop curricula in manufacturing occupations for grades 9 through 12, and to test, modify, reproduce, and disseminate the results. To enhance the dimensions of the operation a committee from Fairleigh Dickinson University and the New Jersey State Department of Education staff was formed to ensure effective achievement of the goals, and a national advisory committee supplemented contacts with industry. A pretest and a pilot test gave students and teachers an opportunity to use the materials developed and respond to questions by project staff. The material was modified, language and content simplified, and four booklets (see related note) were printed: "Exploring Manufacturing Occupations - Students' Manual,""Exploring Manufacturing Occupations - Instructor's Guide,""Occupational Preparation - Inspection and Quality Control - Student's Manual," and "Occupation Preparation - Inspection and Quality Control - Instructor's Guide." The bulk of this report is contained in the appendixes which include a project progress report, outlines for preparation of a teacher's guide and a student resource manual, tabulated results of the pre- and posttests, final report of the pilot tests, teacher questionnaires concerning the material, sample learner activities, and pre- and posttests.
