Davenport, Richard; And Others
This Vocational-Technical Education Consortium of States (V-TECS) catalog provides performance objectives and performance guides (teaching steps) associated with current occupational information relating to the job content of Business Machine Repair. Uses include validation of existing programs, testing of instructional effectiveness, determination of entering student competencies, evaluation of an instructional procedure or system, and curriculum design. One section describes the methodology used in conducting the project to develop the catalog. A brief discussion of elements of the catalog follows. The final and major section contains 128 performance objectives, each corresponding to a task (unit of work activity), arranged under four major duties: supervising and planning, selling office machines and services, maintaining and repairing typewriters, and maintaining and repairing duplicators. Each performance objective contains a condition, behavior, and standard of performance. Accompanying the performance objective are a listing of tools and equipment and a performance guide that lists recommended procedural steps in performing the task. Appendixes include (1) an equipment and tool listing showing numbers and percentages of workers using each piece of equipment, (2) listing of related materials, and (3) index of duties and tasks with a cross-reference table designed to aid teachers in adapting the objectives to individual programs.
