Personnel Development. A Plan to Produce and Distribute an Instructional Package for Teaching the Concepts of Competency-Based Instruction in Home Economics Pre-service Teacher Education Programs. Final Report.
Virginia Polytechnic Inst. and State Univ., Blacksburg.
Described in this final report is the development of a plan to produce and distribute an instructional package for teaching the concepts of competency-based instruction in home economics pre-service education programs in the state of Virginia. Nine Virginia Universities (Virginia Polytechnic Institution and State University, Radford College, James Madison University, Longwood College, Virginia State, Norfolk State, Hampton Institute, Eastern Mennonite College, and Bridgewater College), during 1977-78, were involved in the Competency-Based Education (CBE) pre-service training program activities coordinated by VPI and SU. Radford College and Longwood College participated in the field test. Students from each institution were given the module, worked with it, and filled out comprehensive evaluation forms. In April, 1978, teacher educators representing eight of the nine institutions (Virginia State was absent) reviewed the model and the field test evaluations and revised the model. In June, 1978, each of the nine institutions was sent copies of the final revised model, a teacher guide, a slide/tape presentation, transparencies which coordinate with the module, and reference materials pertinent to the CBE concept. In addition, single copies of several references purchased by project funds were housed at VPI and SU. (Appended is a conference questionnaire regarding CBE materials and a sample CBE module for classroom use with activity sheets, pre- and posttests, and a short reference list.) (Author/VB)
