Some Recent Advances and Research in Vocational Evaluation.
Pennsylvania Rehabilitation Center, Johnstown.
The proceedings include five papers from a seminar designed to train rehabilitation personnel in the procedures, theories, and aims of work evaluation. Morton H. Bregman discusses the use of vocational evaluation in the counseling process; Henry Cobb describes methods of predicting vocational adjustment in the mentally retarded; and John Campbell considers work evaluation in a community evaluation center. Also included are Richard Hill's description of a sheltered workshop in Vermont which performs progressive contract services and William Steiner's review of methods of determining the levels of vocational capability and job potential. Question and answer sections follow the last four papers. A list is appended of test descriptions to be used as an aid to interpreting results on the General Aptitude Test Battery administered by the Pennsylvania Evaluation Department, which Steiner supervises.
