Common Competency Identification. Project Goals, Methodology, Results and Recommendations.
Missouri Univ., Columbia. Instructional Materials Lab.
The Common Competency Identification project was conducted to find common occupational competencies across 19 technical and industrial occupational areas that provide a foundation for reevaluation of the delivery of trade and industrial (T&I) education. Instructors from the nine occupational areas accounting for the largest number of programs in the T&I area participated in an all-morning brainstorming session with vocational administrators, tech prep coordinators, and staff from the University of Missouri. They heard presentations about issues facing T&I and developed draft lists of competencies for the nine largest T&I areas. In the afternoon, each instructor reviewed the 19 T&I occupational profiles developed during the brainstorming session to identify competencies relevant to his or her own occupational area. Based on the information provided by the instructors, revised competency lists were developed and later reevaluated at a 2-day meeting of the instructors. (Appendixes constituting the largest part of this document contain the following: presentations and results from the initial meeting; draft competencies resulting from the initial analysis of materials generated by the first meeting; revised competency lists resulting from the instructors' review of the initial analysis; and a final presentation and questions submitted to the project advisory committee.)
