Development, Evaluation, and Use of Programmed Materials. A Report on the Activities of the Materials Development Unit, MDT Vocational Experimental-Demonstration Project.
McKee, John M.; And Others
The project described in this report attempted to provide a special project for the selection, counseling, testing, assessment, training, placement, and follow-up of prison inmates whose many problems prevented their profiting from conventional programs in vocational training. The mathematical approach to programing was used in developing the programed materials for the project. The report gives a short definition of mathematical programing and describes its use in this context. A second section of the report discusses the selection and evaluation of existing programed materials. It suggests that a proposed program be considered in the context of target population, adaptability, time, motivational characteristics, measurable outcomes, and budget. (JY)
