This report details the process of the Illinois Standards Project to develop, adopt, and implement standards of quality for agricultural occupation programs at both the secondary and postsecondary levels throughout Illinois. Part I, standards for quality programs in area vocational centers excluding metropolitan areas, is divided into three sections. The introduction gives historical settings of the project, the need for standards in Illinois, and rationale, purpose, and objectives of the standards. Section 2 presents the procedural model and describes the use of a steering committee, organizational strategies, informational instruments, pretesting, use of sectional chairmen, followup, and progress report. The third section on analyses contains preliminary data and validation of standards for the various occupations. The bulk of part I contains twenty appendixes including information for the steering committee, news releases, and standards for specific occupations. Tables and figures are included. Part II, standards for programs in the Chicago area is similar in arrangement and is concerned with standards responsive to metropolitan educational needs. Sixteen tables are included which illustrate teacher ratings of standards, qualifications of teachers, and statistics concerning individual horticulture-agriculture programs available in metropolitan schools. Teacher questionnaires are appended. (CT)
