Adult Basic Education Demonstration Project. Final Evaluation Report.
Chattanooga Public Schools, TN.; EPIC Diversified Systems Corp., Tucson, AZ.
The main objectives and activities of the Adult Basic Education (ABE) Demonstration Project are evaluated for the 1971-72 project year in the Model Neighborhood Area of Chattanooga, Tennessee. Briefly discussed are: a community overview, general program status, program management (program goals; job descriptions for the project director, counselor, master teacher, center assistant and audiovisual technician; and a brief description and assessment of 29 process objectives with reference to their degree of completion). The curriculum component contains instructional activities organized into three subcomponents: derived (prevocational typing and clothes construction), generic (reading, handwriting, arithmetic, and spelling), and life style (field trips and arts and crafts). Each of these subcomponents is analyzed in terms of performance objectives (assessed in terms of student behavior changes, skill areas, level of behavior, and degree of completion). Recommendations and suggestions are made in reference to process objective documentation, instructional process objectives, testing policy, coding test items, pre- and posttesting, preparation of data for analysis, affective behavior, monitoring, and levels of behavior. Approximately one-half of the document consists of appendixes comprising record keeping and resource materials. (BP)
