[Clerical and Typing Skills of High School Students Trained in "MOE" Compared to Rural and Urban High School Students Trained in Regular Classroom Techniques (with Teacher and Student Simulated Office Education Packages), Final Report.]
Cottrell, Milford C.; And Others
The purpose of this study was to compare national norms maintained by the National Business Entrance Testing Service with achievement, as measured by the National Busines s Entrance General Office Clerical and Typewriting Tests, of senior office-practice students in rural schools using the Mobile Office Education (MOE) program, in rural schools not using the MOE program, and in urban schools using work-experience programs. A further purpose was to determine the attitudes of students, teachers, administrators, and community members toward the use of the MOE unit in the training of office-practice concepts. Although results did not indicate that achievement was increased by the use of the MOE unit, it was concluded that the lack of pre-test results and the opinions of full-time students, community members, faculty, and administrators would justify further use and evaluation of the MOE unit as an instructional aid in the teaching of clerical skills to high school students. Simulated office-education student and teacher packages are included. (JH)
