Henderson, William Edward, Jr.
Five products are combined here that were developed by a project designed to provide a continuous, competency-based line of vocational training. A policies and procedures guide contains recommendations for future articulation efforts between secondary and postsecondary, public, vocational training institutions. Its contents cover the concept of articulation; a description of the Occupational Education Articulation Program organization; a discussion of the articulation process; implementation of articulation; format of the articulated, performance-based instruction objectives guides for various vocational training programs that were also deve1oped by the project; guidance and admissions considerations for advanced placement considerations; secondary guidance procedures for use of the proficiency report; postsecondary admission of applicants; and proficiency reporting. Potential inhibitors of articulation are identified, and recommendations are made for successful articulation. Appendixes include sample guide pages and project materials. The second product, an introductory guide, is intended as an introduction to the Occupational Education Articulation Program. It is also a reference to instructional guide development and use. The remaining products are three workshop guides providing materials on (1) "Suggestions for Conducting a Task Analysis and Some Sources of Ready-made Task Lists and Objectives for Competency-based Vocational Education"; (2) "Preparing Objectives, Performance Actions, and Standards for Articulated, Performance-Based Instruction"; and (3)"Developing Outcome-referenced Tests."
