Business Information Systems. Occupational Competency Analysis Profile.
Ohio State Univ., Columbus. Vocational Instructional Materials Lab.
This Occupational Competency Analysis Profile (OCAP) for business information systems is an employer-verified competency list that evolved from a modified DACUM (Developing a Curriculum) job analysis process involving business, industry, labor, and community agency representatives throughout Ohio. The competency list consists of 10 units: (1) data input, (2) computer operations, (3) local area networks (LANs), (4) software development, (5) operating systems, (6) software applications, (7) accounting and business concepts, (8) office procedures, (9) communication, and (10) ethical and social issues. Competencies for employability are also listed in 12 units: career development, decision making and problem solving, work ethic, job-seeking skills, job retention and career advancement skills, technology in the workplace, lifelong learning, economic education, balancing work and family, citizenship in the workplace, leadership, and entrepreneurship. Each OCAP identifies the occupational, academic, and employability skills (competencies), clustered into broader subunits and units, and coded by priority needed to enter a given occupation or occupational area. The OCAP guide also includes an academic job profile showing levels of proficiency in academic areas needed for business information systems; a total list of academic competencies as well as a list of the competencies needed for these occupations; and a list of the members of the verification panels.
