Performance Standards for Vocational and Applied Technology Education. Final Report.
Roberts-Gray, Cynthia; And Others
A 2-year project was undertaken to develop performance standards for vocational and applied technology education in Texas. During the first project year, background research on performance standards in vocational and applied technology education was conducted and model performance standards for selected vocational programs were delineated. During the second project year, the process of developing performance standards for sequences of vocational courses preparing students for 22 priority and/or emerging occupations was continued. In addition, course-specific core performance standards were developed for those vocational courses in which they were needed, and a feasibility study of the new performance standards was conducted in a sample of 12 Texas school districts. A data-gathering instrument to be used by local vocational administrators in collecting data for their required district evaluations was developed. (Appendixes include an abstract of the 1991-1992 project work plan, advisory committee minutes, competency lists, task list summaries, a prototype data collection instrument, an occupations worksheet, tables matching existing Student Occupational Competency Achievement Tests to essential elements for specific courses, and project progress reports. Contains 26 references and 14 tables.) (MN)
