Systematic Procedures for IDECC Curriculum Development.
Williams, Terry M.; And Others
This manual provides a discussion of methods and responsibilities involved in the curriculum development process used by the Interstate Distributive Education Curriculum Consortium. Following an introductory chapter, the second chapter presents ten steps for conducting occupational task surveys: determine occupational scope, develop task statement, construct task lists, determine needed task information, determine needed respondent information, design task survey questionnaires, administer task survey questionnaires, process task survey data, write competency statements, and evaluate competency statements. Chapter 3 gives nine steps to be used in developing learning activity packages: cluster competency statements in LAPs, organize LAPs by curriculum sections, write objectives, write learning activities, write instructional materials, write tests and keys, check LAP for completeness, evaluate LAPs, and revise LAPs. The final chapter outlines four steps to use in field testing curriculum materials: plan field-test activities, implement field-test activities, evaluate field-test data, and revise field-test materials. (Curriculum development forms used by the IDECC are appended.) (LRA)
