Computer Literacy Data Processing Occupations. Competencies for Articulation.
Southeast Community Coll., Lincoln, NE.; Lincoln Public Schools, NE.; Nebraska Educational Service Unit 6, Milford.
Developed by high school teachers and junior college instructors in cooperation with representatives of business and industry, these materials are designed to help students move from class to class, from secondary to postsecondary education, and from school to employment. The materials consist of student outcomes; competencies for job, advanced placement, and life application; sample records; and teacher keys. Each competency is made up of a task (what the student must do to demonstrate an ability to do the job), conditions and limitations (a description of the circumstances under which the student will demonstrate the skill), and criteria of acceptable performance. The teacher keys provide the correct answers to evaluations for these criteria. Two sets of competencies are included in the materials: (1) computer literacy competencies applicable to life uses, job competence, and advanced education and training and (2) occupational competencies in data processing applicable to initial employment and to advanced placement for educational purposes. Two record forms, one for charting competencies of all students in a class and the other an individual student record, are included in the materials. They may be used by students and teachers to chart progress toward specific knowledge and skills and as achievement records for presentation with job or postsecondary school applications. (KC)
