State Skill Standards: Housing and Interior Design
Nevada Department of Education
Meeting the Housing and Interior Design Standards will provide students with skills for personal family life and towards becoming a professional in the interior design field. The mission of Housing and Interior Design education is to prepare students for family life, work life, and careers in the fashion industry by creating opportunities to develop the knowledge, skills attitudes and behaviors needed to: (1) Analyze career paths within the housing and interior design fields; (2) Examine skills needed to effectively manage design decisions; (3) Integrate knowledge, skills and practices to design a space for a specific need; (4) Develop knowledge of skills needed in the fields of housing and interior design; and (5) Achieve competence in workplace readiness, career development and lifelong learning. The Housing and Interior Design Skill Standards were developed with state involvement from local education agencies. Due to the differences in facilities and equipment across the state, it is encouraged that housing and interior design students have the opportunity to practice their skills in an industry setting. Adaptability and accessibility are important elements of the Nevada Housing and Interior Design Standards. The standards apply to all students, regardless of age, gender, cultural or ethnic background, disabilities, aspirations, interests or motivations. The Housing and Interior Design Standards format consists of three levels: the content standard; the performance standard; and performance indicators. The Housing and Interior Design Standards include competency-based, conceptual and process perspectives.
