A project was undertaken to design and field test a facility development model for competency-based vocational education programs in Florida. During the first phase of the project, the researchers conducted an in-depth case study of programs and facilities in which successful competency-based technical education programs had been conducted. Next, an analysis was made of the discrepancies between the findings of the case study and the current standards for programs and facilities. After identifying program and facility standards for selected vocational and technical education programs, the researchers developed a model for establishing standards for competency-based programs. The model provided for identification of what is to be taught, how it will be taught, what is needed to teach the programs, and how much space is needed. The final step in the model entails an evaluation of the space required for the program. Based on the field tests of the model in architectural drafting, automotive mechanics, and licensed practical nursing programs, the researchers recommended using a computer to assist in implementing the assessment model and revising the model to include more detailed provisions for assessing the need for instructional materials.
