Russell, Earl, Comp.; And Others
Intended for use by those attempting to initiate or improve competency-based instruction in adult vocational education programs, this directory contains demographic and descriptive information on sixty selected courses and programs operating in public education, other government agencies, business, industry, and labor. Introductory material briefly describes the national survey of public and private sector programs from which these programs were selected. (From 278 usable survey responses, the 60 were chosen based on the thoroughness and appropriateness of the descriptions provided. Competency-based instruction is defined as that based on job/task analysis, and consisting of such elements as performance objectives, individualized instruction, and criterion-referenced testing.) Demographic information for each entry includes course or program title; name of facility and address; contact person and phone number; type of facility where course is offered; hours required to complete the course and whether it is completely open entry/open exit; number of competencies (tasks) identified in the job analysis; number of terminal performance objectives; approximate total enrollment; and months of the year when the program operates. The narrative description of each program covers the methods used for identification of tasks, development of performance objectives, instructional delivery, student testing, course evaluation, and program support. Entries are alphabetical by state and a cross reference index is provided by vocational subject area. (JT)
