Illinois Occupational Skill Standards: Machining Skills Cluster.
Illinois Occupational Skill Standards and Credentialing Council, Carbondale.
This document of skill standards for the machining skills 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 67 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 underlying the standards; table of contents; and performance skill levels. Standards, divided into three skill levels, include: manual operations; milling; drill press and power saw operation; surface grinding; electric discharge machine; computer numerical control; turning operations; and inspection. Appendixes include a glossary; lists of committee and council members; and workplace skills. (YLB)
