Managing ISSOE Programs. Administrative Issues: Technical Report, Number One.
Cornell Univ., Ithaca, NY. Inst. for Occupational Education.
This report identified problems and concerns associated with implementing competency-based vocational education at the local level. It also identified those measures which have been taken to resolve such problems. The first section is organized into these two types of implementation problems: personnel-related problems and administrative-related problems. Personnel related problems addressed include teacher's role change, instructor-referenced standards, age/grade structure, time-based instruction, evaluation, and training the teacher. Administrative-related problems discussed are organizational factors and administrative coordination. At the end of each of the two categories of problems, suggestions drawn from previous literature on implementing innovations are provided. A brief second section considers some of the major problems of the Instructional Support System for Occupational Education (ISSOE) identified in phase 2 of the Dissemination project. (Final report is CE 026 987.) The problems are organized into personnel- and administrative-related problems in ISSOE. A final section lists ten points believed to demand immediate attention to avoid loss of momentum in ISSOE implementation. (YLB)
