Residential Construction. 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 or advanced placement; enabling tasks; a glossary; and sample records. 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 key provides the correct answers to evaluations of these criteria. Competencies cover the following topics: blueprints, estimating, concrete slabs, concrete blocks and bricks, electrical systems, electrical material, plumbing systems, pipes, wallboard, shingles and flashings, wall paneling, paint and varnish, and installation of flooring, carpet, and ceramic tile. The enabling tasks are the activities necessary for developing a job skill; completion of all enabling tasks for a competency leads to achievement of that competency. Two record forms, one for charting competencies of all students in a class and the other an individual student record, complete the materials. (KC)
