EVALUATION OF THE ADULT LEARNING CENTER OF ELIZABETHPORT BY STAFF AND PARTICIPANTS, OPERATIONS FROM 2/26/68 - 4/30/68.
TATUM, WILLIAM; CHASNOFF, ROBERT
ACTIVITIES, FACILITIES, AND PROGRAMED READING MATERIALS AT THE ADULT LEARNING CENTER OF ELIZABETHPORT (ELIZABETH, NEW JERSEY) WERE EVALUATED IN 1968 BY STAFF MEMBERS AND PARTICIPANTS. STAFF OPINIONS DIFFERED AS TO THE MOST SUCCESSFUL MATERIALS, AND REASONS GIVEN FOR SUCCESS VARIED BETWEEN INTEREST LEVEL, SIZE OF PRINT AND LENGTH OF STORIES, THE CHALLENGE PROVIDED, AND SUITABILITY FOR CLIENTELE GROUPS. THE MORE BASIC MCGRAW-HILL MATERIALS PROVED VALUABLE IN TEACHING ENGLISH TO SPANISH SPEAKING PARTICIPANTS. STAFF MEMBERS SAW SUCH FACTORS AS A RELAXED ATMOSPHERE, COUNSELING AND PLACEMENT, THE TEACHERS' EFFECTIVENESS IN WORKING WITH STUDENTS, AND THE QUALITY AND VARIETY OF PROGRAMS AVAILABLE AT EACH LEVEL IN READING, MATHEMATICS, ENGLISH, AND OTHER SUBJECTS, AS VIRTUES OF THE CENTER. HOWEVER, WEAKNESSES WERE NOTED IN FACILITIES, STAFFING, TEACHER PREPARATION, AND CLASS MANAGEMENT, AND VARIOUS IMPROVEMENTS WERE SUGGESTED. OF THE 117 PARTICIPANTS QUERIED, MOST WERE SATISFIED WITH MATERIALS, FACILITIES, AND INSTRUCTION, BUT A NEED WAS EXPRESSED FOR MORE SPACE, NOISE CONTROL, AND HELP FOR SPANISH SPEAKING PERSONS. THE DOCUMENT INCLUDES STATISTICS ON ATTENDANCE, TESTING SERVICES, AND POPULATION CHARACTERISTICS. (LY)
