The Validity and Value of National Vocational Qualifications: The Case of Purchasing.
Erridge, Andrew; Perry, Shayne
Vocational Aspect of Education, v46 n2 p139-54 1994
Reviews development of competency-based standards for National Vocational Qualifications in purchasing as well as criticisms of the competency-based concept related to higher order skills, subjectivity, atomism, and imprecision. Argues that validity of qualifications lies in practitioner involvement in development; their value is in personnel selection and staff development. Both validity and value still require empirical research. (SK)
