Computerized Vocational Objectives Manual and Data Bank for Students with Special Needs. A User's Manual and Comprehensive Data Bank of Over 3000 Vocational Entry and Exit Level Objectives Designed for Special Needs Learners.
Flanagan, W. Malcolm
A project was conducted by Missouri LINC to create a computerized data bank of entry and exit-level competencies that could be applied to special education students in vocational education. The competencies that were developed through that project are contained in this guide. They are expected to be useful for vocational and special education teachers in creating individualized education plans (IEPs) and in counseling with students and parents. The competencies are numbered and grouped by academic areas and vocational areas. They cover the following academic areas: behavior, communication, mathematics, occupational awareness, equipment, and physical skills. The occupations covered are air conditioning and refrigeration, agricultural occupations, automobile service, boat/hull repair, building and maintenance, business and office, boat and power equipment, building trades, child development, data processing, drafting, electronics, food service, general, health occupations, horticulture, masonry, merchandising and fashion, machine shop, small engine repair, and sewing. A guide is included for using the computerized objectives with individual students. (KC)
