A Model Program to Instruct Manpower Training Personnel in the Selection and Application of Remedial Instructional Materials to Meet Individual Trainee Needs. Final Report.
Technical Education Research Center, Montgomery, AL.
A project to develop a model program to instruct training personnel for an individualized manpower training system (IMTS) is reported. In two phases, January 1971 to June 1972 and July 1972 to December 1973, the project trained personnel and field tested IMTS at 10 scattered sites in California and the South. The IMTS component programs include remedial academic training, complementary skills, occupational exploration, and employability and prevocational training. Also included within the second phase was an analytical assessment of IMTS impact on trainees and institutions at the 10 pilot-demonstration sites. Though the results are conditioned by weaknesses in recording and reporting data, they do reflect the effectiveness of the training afforded through the IMTS. The staff training materials have been revised as a result of the field tests at the various pilot-demonstration sites. (Author/WH)
