Smith, Jack; And Others
This document contains materials and information used during and developed by a model 2+2 electronics technology program development project conducted by Gainesville High School and Cooke County College, Texas. A procedures manual provides information on grant application, surveys, committees, curricula, articulation agreement, and goals and objectives. Other contents include a description of the problem area, project goals and objectives, timeline, and committee member lists. A labor survey includes results indicating demand for specific types of job skills. A report on student assessment recommends an assessment process in electronics that prevents student failure. Appendixes to this report include results of a textbook readability examination, a profile of the electronics program, sample assessment tracking form, implementation plan, course descriptions, competency profiles, the articulation agreement between the school district and the college, evaluation of the program, classroom layout and equipment list, instructor qualifications, notices of grant awards (1988-89, 1989-90), and minutes of the steering and articulation committee. Syllabi for two courses--DC circuit analysis and AC circuit analysis--provide this information: required texts, terminal and enabling objectives, content outline, methods of evaluation, grades, student conduct, and administrative information. A list of 88 reference texts and promotional materials is also presented. (YLB)
