Discussed in the 13 sections of the report are MOCAC efforts to meet the following objectives for 1978-79: develop a Michigan policy manual, conduct assessments, select examiners and conduct a workshop to train them, certify examination sites, devise a follow-up system, develop a State norms table, update the MOCAC slide and tape presentation as well as the MOCAC brochure, conduct assessments, conduct four State and three National advisory committee meetings, conduct a workshop for interested parties concerning MOCAC operation, and conduct a workshop for teacher education personnel concerning interpretation of assessment results. Each of these sections contains some or all of the following: a narrative, a manual, one or more lists, one or more agendas, correspondence, MOCAC-developed standards, MOCAC-developed workshop materials, and minutes of meetings.
