State Univ. of New York, Albany. Office for Continuing Education.
A project was conducted to develop a program of competencies needed by persons who are to receive a master's degree as directors of adult continuing education. The first section of the project provided a computerized needs assessment of the training items to be included in a master's degree curriculum for administrators of adult continuing education programs. The assessment was based upon the knowledge, skills, and attitudes identified and validated by the project staff using generally approved research procedures. The data resulting from the needs assessment was used to provide an information base in the development of the curriculum for a master's degree program. The second section of the project presented the data and activities leading to the obtaining of the data concerning the competencies selected for final inclusion in the program. The culmination of the second part was the categorization of the competencies into component groups. The report contains figures and charts, such as a classification grid, synthesis of administrative process; listing of components by program area; index of competencies by component title; and statement classifications of competencies.
