Evaluation Design: Teacher Aide Training Program for St. Bernard Schools.
To evaluate the effectiveness of the teacher aide training program of the St. Bernard Parish Public School System in Louisiana, a research design based on the project's five objectives was formulated. The participants were tested to determine their gains in the acquisition of knowledge in the areas of child growth and development, media technology, and language arts techniques. Attempts were made to determine their level of motivation after completion of the program as well as their attitudes toward continuing their education. All evaluatory findings indicate the success of the program. The attitudinal profiles developed from the IPAT (Institute for Personality and Ability Testing) 16 Personality Factor Questionnaires and the Survey of Study Habits are suggestive of a screening guide in the selection of future aides.
