Summarized is a pilot study of 15 Oregon school district's work study programs for educable retarded young adults. Discussed are the study's two main objectives: the development of instruments to identify the characteristics and compile profiles of work study students, and the selection of variables and instruments to measure classroom procedures. Described are research efforts resulting in 13 evaluation instruments in three categories; input, daily process, and periodic process. Depicted are student profiles, including IQ score and length of time in special education. Methods of assessing daily classroom activities are said to include teacher reports of content, methods, and materials. Also reported are evaluations of student-teacher interactions, regular class participation, availability and utilization of special consultants, and work experience attitudes and performance. Future directions for the project are also considered. (CL)
