VOE Data Processing: Scope and Sequence.
Nashville - Davidson County Metropolitan Public Schools, TN.
This scope and sequence guide, developed for a data processing vocational education program, represents an initial step in the development of a systemwide articulated curriculum sequence for all vocational programs within the Metropolitan Nashville Public School System. It was developed as a result of needs expressed by teachers, parents, and the business community for sequential structure within the vocational education curriculum. The guide contains an introduction, course description, general course objectives, course content (with specific objectives) in outline format, and a list of resource materials, such as textbooks, curriculum guides, and audiovisual aids. Course content includes principles of data processing and their relation to business and industry; computers--their characteristics and functions; and job qualifications for the various disciplines in the computer and data processing fields. The course also provides the student with an understanding of such key topics as the history of data processing, the operation of various types of data processing equipment, and the application of the different data processing methods to typical business situations. Students who successfully complete this course using data entry equipment should be qualified for an entry-level position. (If no equipment is available, students can complete the course using available materials and equipment.) (KC)
