Consumer Resource Management Competencies for Vocational Family and Consumer Sciences in South Dakota.
This document describes a project conducted in South Dakota to develop and validate competency task lists in the area of consumer resource management. During the project, the following activities took place: literature on validation was reviewed; an outline was structured for content based on current references by a panel of two teachers and two teacher educators; a competency list based on outlines individually prepared by the panel was composed; the lists were refined by the panel; and the competency lists were validated by local advisory committees composed of two advisory members and a student and by a subject matter specialist, the teacher panel, and a teacher educator. The competency task lists for consumer resource management in this publication are divided into five areas: (1) management of resources to achieve goals; (2) consumer choices, rights, responsibilities in the marketplace; (3) personal and family financial management; (4) provision of food, clothing and housing; and (5) utilization and impact of technology. Each area consists of units, duties, and competencies. (KC)
