Evaluation and Training Inst., Los Angeles, CA.
This resource guide identifies competencies currently used in occupational education courses and programs offered in California community colleges. The first section presents a brief overview of competency-based education, with particular emphasis on competency-based vocational education (CBVE). This includes a description of competency-based education and competency statements, along with suggestions for writing performance objectives and a checklist for use in developing competency statements. The next section presents listings of the sources of competencies for vocational programs/courses currently offered in the community colleges. These listings are organized by program/course within each of the seven major vocational education program areas: agriculture; distributive/marketing; health occupations; home economics/consumer education; office education; public safety education; and trade and industry. For ease of reading, the competency sources are identified by a numeric code. Detailed information regarding these sources is summarized by code number in the bibliography of the resource guide. The bibliography gives names and addresses of 100 college, commercial, and university/vocational center sources and titles of 13 textbook sources. Sample competency statements from the field are provided in the appropriate program areas. (YLB)
