Abstract

This study developed and validated of competency required for the education of energy technology for vocational high school students in Taiwan. The energy technology competency survey developed through this research is based on a conceptual framework that emphasizes the current definition of the field. Following the conceptual framework, behavioral event interviews and the Delphi technique were used to ensure consistency in the indicators, while the KolmogorovSmirnov one sample goodness of fit test was used to ensure consistency in the opinion of experts. This study identified sixty competency indicators covering knowledge, skills and attitudes domains. These competencies were validated by thirty students and ten domain experts by a nonparametric Mann-Whitney U test. The proposed competency indicators are applicable to the development of curriculum for industrial vocational high school in Taiwan.
