THE ORGANIZATION, ADMINISTRATION AND EVALUATION OF A READING AND STUDY SKILLS PROGRAM FOR STUDENTS ENROLLED IN A MEDICAL LABORATORY ASSISTANTS TRAINING PROGRAM.
MARANI, S. DONALD; MAXWELL, MARTHA J.
AN ANALYSIS AND EVALUATION OF A READING IMPROVEMENT PROGRAM FOR MEDICAL LABORATORY ASSISTANT TRAINEES WHO NEEDED TO IMPROVE THEIR SKILLS IN ORDER TO SUCCEED IN THEIR TECHNICAL COURSE IS PRESENTED. THE STUDENTS WERE GIVEN TESTS OF VOCABULARY, COMPREHENSION, RATE, AND LISTENING COMPREHENSION. THEY KEPT RECORDS OF THEIR OWN PROGRESS, AND POST-TESTS WERE GIVEN AT THE END OF THE COURSE. THE PROGRAM WAS SET UP FOR 10 HOURS OF INSTRUCTOR TIME EACH WEEK. THERE WERE THREE 2-HOUR LECTURE AND DISCUSSION SESSIONS FOR THE ENTIRE GROUP, TWO 1-HOUR PERIODS ARRANGED FOR INDIVIDUAL INSTRUCTION ON SPECIFIC SKILLS AS NEEDED, AND THE REMAINING HOURS WERE USED FOR WORK WITH STUDENT CONSULTANTS AND FELLOW INSTRUCTORS AND FOR GENERAL PREPARATION. THE TECHNIQUES, MATERIALS, AND ORGANIZATION USED WERE SIMILAR TO THOSE USED IN ADULT AND COLLEGE READING PROGRAMS. PRE- AND POST-TEST SCORES WERE ANALYZED BY THE T TEST TO SHOW SIGNIFICANT GAINS IN LISTENING COMPREHENSION AND READING RATE AND BY RESIDUAL GAIN TO SHOW IMPROVEMENT ON THE NELSON-DENNY READING TEST. RESULTS ARE REPORTED IN TABLE FORM. FIFTEEN REFERENCES ARE INCLUDED. (RH)
