Phase III of an experimental demonstration program in adult basic education in corrections is reported. The two major program goals were: (1) training of selected personnel in use of models to achieve goals of adult basic education for correctional settings; and (2) evaluation of conceptual model and design of instructional delivery system models for adult basic education programs in correctional institutions. The system designed to accomplish the program goals included two major functions: personnel training and system design. Personnel training was effected through a national advanced training seminar to train selected individuals for leadership and instructional roles and through seven regional seminars conducted to train selected persons in the basic use of systems approach to instruction of adult basic education in corrections. Two areas of activity were carried out in the system design function: (1) evaluation of the conceptual model of adult basic education in corrections, and (2) design of models for instructional delivery systems. Phase III resulted in advanced training of 37 individuals, basic training of 110 persons in systems approach to instruction of adult basic education in corrections, and design of 49 models of instructional delivery systems. Appendixes provide material related to both the National Advanced Training Seminar and the 1972 Regional Basic Training Seminars. (DB)
