Interim Report on CETA.
Furbee, Jack W.
The Continuing Education by Tutorial Assistance (CETA) program was implemented by Olivet Nazarene College and sponsored by Kankakee Community College, Kankakee, Illinois. The objective of the program was to reach black, high school students who were likely to drop out of school. Evaluation was accomplished by pairing 35 tutees with 35 nontutees. They were matched according to age, sex, socioeconomic background, grade in school, grade-point average, teacher, and high school subject. It was hypothesized that there would be no difference in achievement or affective classroom behavior between the two groups. Each tutor participated in the CETA's three-part lesson plan. The interim conclusions from the program were a) achievement of tutored students would remain the same or increase and b) achievement of nontutored students would remain the same or decrease. Statistics were not available for the affective dimension of the study. (Four tables of statistical data are included along with the CETA Lesson Plan for Tutors.) (BRB)
