A National Survey of Current and Anticipated Media Equipment in Residential and Day Programs for the Hearing Impaired.
Grant, William D.; Clark, Norma
Five investigations sponsored by the Office of Research and Evaluation (ORE) of the Model Secondary School for the Deaf (MSSD) are reported. Presented first are results of a national survey (April 1974) of media equipment in 123 residential and day programs for the hearing impaired, in which the number of cassette video recorders and color video monitors was found to be increasing the most. The second report is an evaluation of the Computer Assisted Instruction Mathematics Strands Curriculum, based on its use (1971-73) with 86 students at MSSD whose achievement on the Strands did not relate significantly to achievement on the Stanford Achievement Test math subtest. The third article consists of four suggestions (such as specifying objectives) to aid teachers in developing student attitude questionnaires. A manual which ORE has utilized to collect teacher generated data during formative evaluation of MSSD projects is provided. Reported last is a formative evaluation (1973) of an in-house developed unit of General Art II which, when used to teach six basic terms describing texture to a sample group of eight MSSD students, resulted in all Ss attaining 100 percent level of accuracy on cognitive posttests.
