These two visualizations, one a radial chart and one a bar chart, show the same information, a rating of how necessary the following skills are for Technical Teacher Education majors. Toggle between "value" and "RCA" to see the absolute rating of that skill (value) and the revealed comparative advantage (RCA), or how much greater or lesser that skill's rating is than the average. The longer the bar or the closer the line comes to the circumference of the circle, the more important that skill is. The importance of Equipment Selection is very distinctive for majors, but the Speaking, Reading Comprehension, Active Listening, Learning Strategies, Writing, Instructing, Active Learning, Monitoring, Critical Thinking, Complex Problem Solving, Social Perceptiveness, Judgment and Decision Making, Time Management, Coordination, Systems Evaluation, Service Orientation, Persuasion, Negotiation, Systems Analysis, Management of Personnel Resources, Operations Analysis, Mathematics, Management of Material Resources, Science, Management of Financial Resources, Operation Monitoring, Quality Control Analysis, Equipment Selection, Technology Design, Operation and Control, Troubleshooting, Equipment Maintenance, Repairing, Programming, and Installation are the three most important skills for people in the field.
