This document, which is intended as a guide for work force preparation program providers, details the Illinois occupational skill standards for programs preparing students for employment in occupations in the finishing and distribution cluster. The document begins with a brief overview of the Illinois perspective on occupational skill standards and credentialing, the process used to develop the skill standards, and assumptions underlying the standards. Presented next are skill standards for 14 tasks typically performed by workers involved in finishing and distribution. Each skill standard statement contains the following components: (1) the actual skill standard (including the conditions of performance, work to be performed, and performance criteria); (2) performance elements and assessment criteria; and (3) a recommended assessment and credentialing approach. The following are among the tasks for which skill standards are provided: (1) perform binding operations (cutting, folder setup, trimming, stitching); (2) perform specialty operations (embossing, foil stamping, die-cutting); and (3) perform mailing, distribution, and ink jet printing operations.
