The Comprehensive Competencies Program: A Summary.
The Comprehensive Competencies Program (CCP) is intended for use in delivering individualized, competency-based instruction in such diverse settings as community-based organizations, schools, corrections facilities, and job training programs. The learning system covers academic competencies ranging from elementary reading and arithmetic through high school and introductory college-level science, mathematics, humanities, social studies, and writing. It also addresses such functional competencies as job-getting and job-holding skills, consumer skills, citizenship, and health and community participation. CCP is based on a hierarchical framework of competency objectives organized into academic and functional components and includes 750 mastery tests to diagnose learner needs and track competency attainment. The program also features an information system that gathers all the information needed for individual education planning and tracking, management of instructional activities, and evaluation, as well as five computer systems to automate test scoring, teaching, record keeping, reporting, managing, and computer networking. The CCP users network links practitioners through quarterly user bulletins, surveys, and updates. CCP has been used effectively in diverse institutions ranging from adult basic education institutions to settings that can be described as high-tech one-room schoolhouses. (Thirty-three tables describing the outcomes and effectiveness of CCP are appended.) (MN)
