The Development and Testing of a Statewide Multilevel Curriculum Management System for Georgia Vocational Education Programs. Final Report.
Scott, Paul; Butler, Ray
Focusing on the management of vocational curricula with a special emphasis on individualized instruction, a research and development project had a fourfold purpose: (1) design and development of a statewide curriculum management system (CMS), (2) testing of that system by developing additional individualized student materials and adapting existing materials, (3) preparation of materials to improve local administrators' skills in curriculum management and instructor leadership for their teachers, and (4) preparation of support and staff development modules for teachers implementing the individualized instruction approach. Four major products were developed: Curriculum Management System Handbook for supervisors and administrators (CE 024 008); Curriculum Management System Handbook, State Level (CE 024 007); four teacher's guides; and an individualized health occupations program. The state level CMS handbook suggests a CMS developed around five basic functions: management, development, reproduction, diffusion/dissemination, and evaluation/revision. In addition to outlining a CMS method for the local level, the vocational administrator's handbook contains a task listing, classroom/lab budget planning, model, workforce data analysis, and student and employer followup. Teaching guides were developed for transportation, construction, auto body repair, and machine shop programs using a three-volume format. (A copy of a unit from the individualized Health Occupations-Teachers Education program is appended.) (YLB)
