Eighth Teacher Evaluation and Pre-Post Test Results of the Jackson County Adult Evening High School Completion Program (Iowa) for the Semester Ending December 17, 1969.
Gran, James R.
Teachers of 30 adult evening high school completion classes in Jackson County, Iowa, completed questionnaires to assess their own inservice training needs in relation to program content and effectiveness. The comparative few who recognized a need for inservice training stressed such concerns as courses in English, and adult education trends and innovations. In general, the most helpful program activities were use of audiovisual aids, blackboard work by teachers, classroom illustrations by teachers, and class discussions. Lectures, home work, and workbooks were of little use. The dropout rate was the leading problem. Teachers' suggestions for improving classes were few. Pretest and posttest results gave significant indication that adults are really learning. Moreover, in view of the lack of testing tailored to adults, the extent of learning may have been underestimated. (ly)
