California Teacher Development Project; Fremont ESEA Title 3, Dissemination Grant Period. Evaluation Report 1972-73.
The evaluation of the California Teacher Development Project for the 1972-73 project year reports data for four performance criteria. These criteria relate to the expected behavioral changes of teachers involved in an inservice workshop program in individualizing instruction. One criterion relates to teacher knowledge of individualized instruction (cognitive behavior); three criteria relate to teacher attitude toward individualized instruction. To determine the effectiveness of the 1972-73 inservice program, a comparison group was formed using data from participants in the 1971-72 program. Instruments used to measure the effectiveness of the workshop program were: (a) the Fremont Test of Individualized Instruction, (b) the EPIC Individualized Instruction Attitude Inventory, and (c) workshop evaluation forms which were completed by workshop participants. Participants in the 1972-73 workshop program did not perform as well as the comparison group on either the Fremont Test of Individualized Instruction or the EPIC Individualized Instruction Attitude Inventory; however, the difference in the performance was not statistically significant, and the 1972-73 workshop program is considered to have satisfactorily met its objective of disseminating individualized instruction techniques through inservice programs.
