Adult Basic Counseling and Testing Program; Pilot Project Evaluative Report.
Eastern Wyoming Coll., Torrington.
Undertaken by Eastern Wyoming College, this pilot program of adult basic counseling and testing sought to stimulate the enrollment of school dropouts in adult basic education courses, help enrollees discover their vocational interests and capabilities, and aid them in their personal and social adjustment. A full-time counselor took charge of recruiting students, testing them for class placement, counseling them after enrollment, and offering subsequent vocational counseling as well as academic counseling. The General Aptitude Test Battery, five other diagnostic and achievement tests, and a self-image questionnaire proved especially useful as measurement instruments. Student interviews and a definite enrollment increase, with fewer dropouts and a higher percentage of General Educational Development test completions, gave evidence that the project had achieved many of its objectives. (The document includes adult basic education program guidelines, recommendations, test scores, enrollment data, and the questionnaire.) (ly)
