To increase the supply of modularized instructional materials to meet the need for preservice and/or inservice education of professional vocational educators, the National Center for Research in Vocational Education and seven interested states organized in 1978 a Consortium for the Development of Professional Materials for Vocational Education. To deliver the 166 competencies identifed and nationally verified as important to local administrators in previous research (ED 164 746), it was estimated that twenty-five to tirty modules were needed. With six modules having been developed and field tested as part of another project (ED 164 747), the specific objective of the consortium for 1978-79 was to develop and field test seven additional competency-based modules designed specifically for use in the preparation of local administrators of secondary and postsecondary vocational education programs. One module was to be prepared by each of the seven member states: Florida, Illinois, Ohio, New York, North Carolina, Pennsylvania, and Texas. Following establishment of development priorities, modules were developed in a four-stage process involving preparation of (1) a module prospectus, (2) a field review version, (3) a field test version, and (4) the published edition. (Appendixes include the minutes of three board meetings and four progress reports.) (YLB)
