Illinois Occupational Skill Standards: Information Processing Cluster.
Illinois Occupational Skill Standards and Credentialing Council, Carbondale.
This document with skill standards for the information processing cluster serves as a guide to workforce preparation program providers in defining content for their programs and to employers to establish the skills and standards necessary for job acquisition. These 49 occupational skill standards describe what people should know and be able to do in an occupational setting. Each skill standard contains at least these three areas: performance area (summary of work to be performed); skill standard with conditions of performance, work to be performed, and performance criteria; and performance elements and assessment criteria. These sections may also be included: performance area and assessment and credentialing approach. Introductory materials include the developmental process; assumptions for information processing standards; table of contents; and performance skill levels. Skill standards are divided into these areas: word processing; machine transcription; basic office operations; basic data processing; computer file manipulations; office procedures; document processing; database and spreadsheet operations; computer applications; office assistant duties; and perform information processing activities. Appendixes include a glossary; lists of committee and council members; and workplace skills. (YLB)
