A Local School Implementation Plan for Performance Based Vocational Education. A Project Report. Information Series No. 11.
Smalley, Shirley F.
This report describes a plan that demonstrates how a vocational program with traditional curriculum can be gradually changed to performance-based curriculum without disrupting the efficient operation of the existing program. The plan outlines the performance-based vocational education (PBVE) program management system, curriculum development procedures, and an implementation process developed and implemented in the New Castle (Indiana) Area Vocational School. The report discusses the background and rationale for using PBVE; and procedures for developing a PBVE management plan, organizing the school for PBVE, developing the PBVE curriculum, and implementing the program. It also shows how the PBVE curriculum can provide a means for students to articulate from secondary to postsecondary programs. Figures outline each PBVE management plan development and implementation section. Appendixes include samples of materials developed. (Author/KC)
