Pittsburgh Technical Health Training Institute Demonstration Project; Quarterly Report.
Kishkunas, Louis J.
This fifth quarterly report covers the period June 15, 1967 to December 15, 1967 of a project aimed at demonstrating a faster method of training higly qualified workers for the health field. During this period, nurse aides were trained in a pilot program based upon the educational objectives derived from entry level behavioral specifications previously verified by a job analysis survey. The 172-page "Nurse Aide Handbook" which had been begun during the previous quarter was completed and utilized. Unit quizzes, work sheets, progress records, daily lesson plans, and an overall schedule were developed and applied. The research team conferred regularly with course instructors in order to obtain maximum utilization of techniques suggested in the second quarter in-service program. Performance test scores of the experimental groups were significantly higher than those of the control group, and the experimental curriculum reduced the training time by 25 percent. The next project phase will include comparison of the experimental and control groups both at the end of training and on the job. Appendixes include sample worksheets, a sample lesson plan, and an overall course schedule. Earlier reports are ED 019 508, ED 019 509 and ED 011 978. (JK)
