Competencies Needed for Articulation among and between Post-Secondary Vocational Food Technology Programs in Texas.
Glosson, Linda R.; Schrock, Jay R.
A study examined the competencies needed for articulation among and between postsecondary vocational food technology programs in Texas. A two-round Delphi survey was used to collect data from the instructors and coordinators of food service programs in Texas postsecondary institutions during the 1984-85 school year. Thirty-five of the 71 persons (52 percent) asked to participate in the first round completed questionnaires; all of these 35 individuals completed round 2 questionnaires. A consensus of 70 percent or more was reached on 208 of the 223 items on the Delphi questionnaire. Subcompetencies not reaching consensus were not contingent on the educational level, type of degree held, major area of study while in school, years of teaching experience, or years of food service experience. Eight of the 18 subcompetencies on which no consensus was reached were related to teaching in the are of restaurant management. (Appendices include a select bibliography, 20 tables, the questionnaires used in each round of the survey, survey-related correspondence, and means and percentages for competencies and subcompetencies.)
