Summative Evaluation of Diagnostic and Prescriptive Reading Instruction, Spring, 1977 and Career Education in the Elementary School, Summer, 1977. Technical Report Number 17.
Perritt, Lea J.; Mertens, Donna M.
Since 1974 the Appalachian Education Satellite Program, which is described in this report, has delivered graduate level teacher training courses in diagnostic and prescriptive reading and in career education to elementary and secondary teachers in remote areas of Appalachia. Evaluation of the courses has focused on determining how they affected participants' learning and attitudes, the effectiveness of the learning activities and methods of presentation, the reliability of the equipment, the overall course evaluations, and the way the results compare with the results of previous deliveries of the course. This report presents the results of the 1977 deliveries of the two types of courses to elementary teachers. For each course, it provides a course overview and lists topics and objectives for the individual programs in the course, discusses procedures and instruments used in the course evalaution, and presents the evaluation results. The report includes numerous tables and provides samples of such materials as attitude and background questionnaires, instructional activities rating forms, and equipment report and student satisfaction forms completed by teachers.
