TRAINING TYPIST IN THE INDUSTRIAL ENVIRONMENT, AN EVALUATIONAL REPORT.
BALL, SAMUEL
THE NATIONAL ASSOCIATION OF MANUFACTURERS (NAM) HELD FOUR TYPING LABORATORIES IN 1965 AND 1966 AT NAM HEADQUARTERS (NEW YORK CITY), COLLEGE LIFE INSURANCE COMPANY (INDIANAPOLIS), CHEMICAL BANK NEW YORK TRUST COMPANY (NEW YORK CITY), AND PACIFIC TELEPHONE AND TELEGRAPH COMPANY (SAN FRANCISCO) TO DEVELOP A SYSTEM OF TRAINING TYPISTS WITHIN THE INDUSTRIAL ENVIRONMENT. RESULTS SHOWED THAT IF THE TRAINEES WANTED TO LEARN TO TYPE AND HAD A MINIMAL EDUCATIONAL LEVEL (COULD READ AND SPELL AT ABOVE A SIXTH-GRADE LEVEL), THEY COULD BE BROUGHT TO AN EMPLOYABLE SKILL LEVEL IN ABOUT 35 TO 45 DAYS AT A VERY LOW TRAINING COST, SINCE THE MIND PROGRAM IS ALMOST COMPLETELY AUTOMATED. IF TRAINEES WERE BELOW SIXTH-GRADE LEVEL, THEY HAD TO UNDERGO A COURSE IN BASIC COMMUNICATION SKILLS BEFORE BEGINNING THE TYPING PROGRAM. STATISTICAL DATA ON THE TRAINEES INCLUDING PRE- AND POST-TEST RESULTS, IMPROVEMENT IN SPEED AND ACCURACY, NUMBER OF DAYS IN THE PROGRAM, AND EMPLOYMENT OR DROPOUT INFORMATION WERE TABULATED. THIS DOCUMENT IS AVAILABLE FROM THE NATIONAL ASSOCIATION OF MANUFACTURERS, 277 PARK AVENUE, NEW YORK CITY 10017. (AJ)
