Idaho State Dept. of Education, Boise. Div. of Vocational Education.
This Technical Committee Report prepared by industry representatives in Idaho lists the skills currently necessary for an employee in that state to obtain a job in drafting and design technology, retain a job once hired, and advance in that occupational field. (Task lists are grouped according to duty areas generally used in industry settings, and are used as the basis for modules in the statewide curriculum guide development process and for generating student profiles.) The first section of the guide is the task profile, which provides the Idaho code number for the occupation and outlines major concepts/content, laboratory activities, teaching considerations, and intended outcomes. The guide then lists the following 25 task areas with subtasks (competencies) for drafting and design technology: employability skills; orientation; basic drafting skills; technical mathematics; multiview drawings; sectional views; auxiliary drawings; basic dimensioning; pictorial drawings; sheet metal developments; drafting applications; basic charts and graphs; computer skills; computer-aided drawings; architectural drawings; structural drawings; civil drawings; electrical/electronic drawings; pneumatic/hydraulic drawings; mechanical drawings; electrical/electronic drawings; advanced computer-aided drawings; advanced mechanical drawings; tool and die drawings; and basic surveying skills.
