Curriculum Development Guidelines for WisCom. Guidelines for Curriculum Development for the Wisconsin Competency-Based Occupational Curriculum Data System.
This handbook is designed to provide uniform criteria and a support system to help individuals involved in curriculum-related functions within a school system to implement the Wisconsin Competency Based Occupational Curriculum Data System (WisCom). (The WisCom system is a complete support system for curriculum development and management that involves the use of a computer-based inventory of available curriculum materials in order to facilitate the sharing of resources among involved parties.) Addressed in the individual sections of the guide are the following topics: the nature and scope of WisCom; planning and describing a curriculum project; occupational analysis in curriculum development; the development of program goals; the grouping and sequencing of tasks; the writing of performance objectives; and the development of objective-based evaluations, learning activities, resources, and management systems. (Appendixes to the guide contain sources of information about occupations and curricula, definitions for competency-based instruction, and definitions of curriculum components.) (MN)
