Graphic Communications--Graphic Arts. Ohio's Competency Analysis Profile.
Ohio State Univ., Columbus. Vocational Instructional Materials Lab.
This Ohio Competency Analysis Profile (OCAP), derived from a modified Developing a Curriculum (DACUM) process, is a current comprehensive and verified employer competency program list for graphic communications--graphic arts. Each unit (with or without subunits) contains competencies and competency builders that identify the occupational, academic, and employability skills needed to enter this occupational area. Within that outline are three levels of items: core, advancing, and futuring. Core items are essential to entry-level employment. Advancing items are needed to advance in a given occupation. Futuring items are needed to enter and remain in a given occupation 3 to 4 years from now. This profile contains 15 units: (1) orientation; (2) business and the graphic communications industry; (3) measurement systems; (4) job planning; (5) design and layout; (6) typesetting; (7) proofing; (8) paste-up; (9) darkroom; (10) film images; (11) plates; (12) offset presses; (13) finishing operations; (14) desktop publishing; and (15) employability skills.
