Competency Based Instructional Resource Guide. Sample Format. Welding.
Hoerner, James L.; Horne, Ralph A.
The purpose of this sample guide is to assist teachers and curriculum specialists in developing instructional materials that are competency based and that meet Virginia standards for competency-based education (CBE) programs. The sample deals with the occupation of welding, but it is the format that is of interest here, not the subject matter. Following introductory information on how to use the guide and how to develop and implement a CBE, the guide is organized into six sections. The first section contains information concerning the occupation for which the curriculum materials are being written; this information is useful for preparing instructional activities and for counseling students. In the second section, the process of task analysis is shown, based on the results of a validated task inventory. This section contains a list of actual task/competency statements for workers, occupational titles, codes for the Dictionary of Occupational Titles, program and course titles, performance and enabling objectives, criterion-referenced measures, tools, materials, supplies, audiovisual materials, and references related to the task. The third section describes the approved programs and courses offered for the occupational area, correlated with the task analyses. The fourth and fifth sections contain sample classroom management systems and student recordkeeping systems that have been field tested and are designed for welding courses. Additional resources, books, periodicals, films, tapes, instructional materials, and trade associations are listed in the final section of the guide. (KC)
