Competencies for Articulation. Introduction to Visual Media. Final Report.
McFadden, Mary Ellen
This project was conducted to create visual media technology competencies for articulation in order to (1) provide a basis from which to assess similar instructional efforts at other vocational and prevocational institutions; (2) provide a detailed listing of competencies required by Spokane Falls Community College (Washington) for instructors teaching at other institutions; (3) provide equal assessment of all students transfering into the visual media technology program; and (4) provide an objective method of assessing students' prior experience. After meeting with local prevocational training program instructors, the developer examined their programs, identified similarities, and then established the competencies needed by persons who have finished a two-year college program in visual media technology. The result of the project (contained in this document) was the development of a detailed listing of competencies for introduction to visual media and the method for measuring mastery of those competencies. The program contains 10 competencies. Each competency consists of a task, directions, standards for acceptable performance, test items, and teacher's key. An individual student record is also included in the packet. (KC)
