Program Models for EMR Students, 2nd Year Evaluation, February 1, 1972-January 31, 1973.
Ohio State Dept. of Education, Columbus.
Summarized are major findings of a 2-year Title III project serving educable mentally retarded (EMR) students in approximately 100 special education classes in eight regions of Ohio. The program is said to have been designed to meet the following goals: to create behavioral objectives for the EMR curriculum, to train teachers of EMR students to write and field test the behavioral objectives, and to develop a system to evaluate the effect of various program models on the behavior of EMR students. It is reported that behavioral objectives have been developed in 14 curriculum areas such as learning to earn a living and learning to manage money, that eight models (self contained, modified self contained, selected academic, selected educational, half time placement, learning center, and mainstream) have been field tested, and that a test with items representing all curriculum areas has been given to students in the model classrooms. Evaluation is said to indicate a need to continue to refine the objectives into a major curriculum for EMR students, to develop the teacher training component utilizing regional and university staffs, and to continue to initiate more model classes and evaluate student progress.
