Job Functional Profile.
Miller, Geoffrey Clark
This document contains one of two assessment tools developed by Project Proud Option, which developed and field-tested a set of student- and job-assessment instruments that provide a strategy for determining (1) the vocational skills required on a particular job; (2) the functional skill levels of a particular student; (3) a process to determine the discrepancies between required job skills and existing student skills; (4) an open-ended strategy for generating age-appropriate curriculum; and (5) a relevant individualized education program for handicapped people based on real world tasks. The Job Functional Profile, the assessment guide contained in this document, provides a strategy for determining the vocational skills required for a particular job and transferring this information into a relevant training program for a student. This document presents the strategy in four phases: (1) initiating the contacts within the business community; (2) accumulating job skill inventories; (3) determining the discrepancies between the existing skills and the vocational skills required on the job; and (4) transferring that information or more detailed job descriptions back to the Student Functional Profile (CE 022 948) for relevant training. A narrative history of the project, a resource bibliography, and examples of additional core skills are appended. (BM)
