Competency-Based Education Curriculum for Machine Shop. Student Material.
Associated Educational Consultants, Inc., Pittsburgh, PA.; West Virginia State Vocational Curriculum Lab., Cedar Lakes.
This publication contains the student material for the machine shop competency-based education curriculum for secondary students in West Virginia. It has been developed to facilitate the learning of skills necessary for a career as a machinist. The tasks in the curriculum are those actually performed on the job. The materials are intended for use by students and/or the instructor. The student material is made up of 16 units, divided into modules. Each module is made up of several tasks (job-related competencies). For each task there is a student competency sheet that requires performance of five or more steps in order to accomplish the task. Each student competency sheet contains a performance checklist, a "test"--items needed, task to be done, and standard (how well the task must be done)--and learning activities. Some student competency sheets have extra information sheets, a self-check test, or an instructor check sheet. Job titles covered by the tasks in the modules include machinist, electrical discharge machine set-up operator, numerical control machine operator, and machine shop supervisor (tool). (KC)
