Project P.I.S.C.E.S.: Phoenix Indian School Comprehensive Evaluation for Education of Students, Final Report.
Arizona State Univ., Tempe. Bureau of Educational Research and Services.
The premise advanced by Project P.I.S.C.E.S. (Phoenix Indian School Comprehensive Evaluation for Education of Students) was that physical, educational, and psychological evaluation of students would leave no doubt as to individuals' strengths and weaknesses as these areas relate to learning in a formal academic situation. To complement the subjective evaluation of students by a school staff, objective measures were introduced to achieve baseline data on students, thereby establishing a data bank for ongoing reevaluation of student progress. Each new student at Phoenix Indian High School was examined and treated for general health, dental health, and vision defects, and the information was recorded on a clinical record card made available to teachers and counselors. Educational testing included the SRA Achievement Series and the Primary Mental Abilities Test. Psychological testing included the Mooney Problem Check List (Jr. High School Form), the Memory for Designs Test, and the Draw a Person Test; in-depth psychological testing included the Bender Visual Motor Gestalt Test, the Wechsler Intelligence Scale, and the Thematic Apperception Test. Results of the testing program as applied to Indian students are included in summary and recommendations form. (LS)
