SNAP/SMART II. Final Report.
Educational Computer Corp., Radnor, PA.
Trainees with low reading achievement (0 to 4th grade levels) were recruited, tested, and selected for training in four areas: auto mechanics, appliance repair service, heating services, and electronics, especially radio and television repair. The project employed a work simulation device, the SMART simulator, to help overcome the traditional training program reliance on printed textbook matter while concurrently teaching remedial reading and mathematics to upgrade basic skills.
