V-TECS Guide for Automobile Engine Performance Technician.
Meyer, Calvin F.; Benson, Robert T.
This guide is intended to assist teachers responsible for instructing future auto engine performance technicians. The following topics are covered: diagnosing engine performance problems, ignition system problems, fuel system problems, mechanically related performance problems, emission control system problems, and electronic control systems; maintaining ignitions, fuel systems, emission control systems, and electronic control systems; and conducting shop operations. The course outline is organized in the form of duty sheets. Each duty sheet contains some or all of the following: a performance objective (including a task, the source of the standard, and conditions for performance of the task); enabling objectives; resources; suggested teaching activities; a criterion-referenced measure (including questions, answers, a practical application, and a method of evaluating the practical application); and a performance checklist. The activities provided are designed to train students in the performance of job-relevant tasks. All three domains of learning--psychomotor, cognitive, and affective--are addressed. Appendixes include a cross-referenced table of duties, tasks, and performance objectives; definitions of key pertinent terms; a list of required tools, equipment, and work aids; a list of state-of-the-art literature; and a bibliography.
