Maintaining DACUM Quality.
Norton, Robert E.
This document discusses the importance of maintaining the quality of DACUM (Developing a Curriculum) occupational analyses and presents a 2-page checklist detailing DACUM quality performance criteria. The introduction to the checklist discusses various "infractions" discovered during an analyses of some curriculum/program developers' attempts to modify the DACUM process, including the following: unsuitable composition of "expert worker" committees; lack of definitions of criteria for job tasks/task statements; heavy dependence on outdated literature reviews; lack of high-quality duty and task statements; and failure to separate out worker behaviors, general knowledge and skills, and tool and equipment statements. The checklist, which is designed for use by secondary and postsecondary educators (including tech prep and school-to-work program developers) who are attempting to use and/or modify the DACUM occupational analysis process, contains a total of 54 criterion statements regarding the following elements of the DACUM process: structure of the DACUM committee, facilitator qualifications and certification; implementation of the DACUM process; formulation of duty statements, job tasks, and task statements on the DACUM research chart; and other information required on a DACUM research chart.
