AN EVALUATION OF THE UNIVERSITY OF MARYLAND READING AND STUDY SKILLS SATELLITE PROGRAM.
MAXWELL, MARTHA J.; ROSS, MAMIE H.
AT THE UNIVERSITY OF MARYLAND A SATELLITE PROGRAM OF THE READING AND STUDY SKILLS LABORATORY WAS CONDUCTED AT THE DELTA PHI EPSILON SORORITY HOUSE. AT THE SORORITY'S REQUEST, SPECIAL EQUIPMENT INCLUDING A CONTROLLED READER, A TACHISTOSCOPE, A TAPE RECORDER WITH TAPES ON ALL PHASES OF THE READING PROGRAM, AND THE POWER AND RATE BUILDERS UNIT OF THE SCIENCE RESEARCH ASSOCIATES READING KIT WAS PLACED IN A SPECIAL STUDY ROOM. THE PLEDGE TRAINER AND SCHOLARSHIP CHAIRMAN WERE TO WORK WITH THE READING COUNSELOR AND WERE TO GIVE INSTRUCTIONS TO THE GIRLS FOR USING THE EQUIPMENT AND FOR SETTING UP INDIVIDUAL STUDY PROGRAMS. MEETINGS WERE HELD TO EXPLAIN THE ADVANTAGES OF USING THE LABORATORY. VARIOUS TESTS INCLUDING THE WRENN STUDY HABITS INVENTORY AND THE NELSON-DENNY READING COMPREHENSION WERE ADMINISTERED, AND THE SCORES WERE EXPLAINED. THE COUNSELOR WAS PRESENT FOR SCHEDULED WORK SESSIONS, BUT ONLY THREE OR FOUR GIRLS ATTENDED EACH TIME. AFTER 10 WEEKS THE EQUIPMENT WAS REMOVED TO THE PARENT LABORATORY, AND A QUESTIONNAIRE ON THE USE MADE OF THE LABORATORY AND THE ATTITUDES OF THE GIRLS TOWARDS THE PROGRAM WAS ADMINISTERED. QUESTIONNAIRE ANSWERS WERE TABULATED. AN ACCOUNT OF THE COUNSELOR'S EXPERIENCES WITH THE SATELLITE LABORATORY IS APPENDED. REFERENCES ARE INCLUDED. (RH)
