THE PRODUCTION AND VALIDATION OF EDUCATIONAL SYSTEMS PACKAGES FOR OCCUPATIONAL TRAINING OF DEPRESSED AREA STUDENTS, FINAL REPORT.
BUSHNELL, DON D.
INDIVIDUAL TUTORIAL SESSIONS WERE CONDUCTED WITH 42 10TH-GRADE STUDENTS IN A LARGE INNER-CITY HIGH SCHOOL, WITH THE PURPOSE OF REVISING A UNIT OF GENERAL MATHEMATICS FROM A STANDARD TEXT. THE HYPOTHESIS TESTED WAS THAT MATERIAL SO REVISED WOULD YIELD MORE LEARNING FOR STUDENTS OF THIS POPULATION THAN MATERIALS REVISED UNDER STANDARD CURRICULUM WORKSHOP CONDITIONS. THE EXPERIMENTAL GROUP (50 STUDENTS) STUDIED TUTORIALLY REVISED MATERIALS, AND THE CONTROL GROUP (50 STUDENTS) STUDIED TEACHER-PREPARED MATERIALS BASED ON THE SAME UNIT. STUDENTS IN THE EXPERIMENTAL GROUP SCORED SIGNIFICANTLY HIGHER ON CRITERION TESTS ADMINISTERED IMMEDIATELY UPON COMPLETION OF THE MATERIAL. THE HYPOTHESIS APPEARED TO HAVE BEEN SUPPORTED BY THIS STUDY. RECOMMENDATIONS WERE MADE FOR A MAJOR RESEARCH PROJECT AIMED AT THE PRODUCTION AND VALIDATION OF FIVE SEMESTER UNITS OF INSTRUCTION IN SUBJECT AREAS BASIC TO PROGRAMS OF VOCATIONAL EDUCATION. (GD)
