Post Secondary Programs for the Deaf: IV. Empirical Data Analysis. Research Report No. 75.
Harlow, Mary Jane P.; And Others
The fourth of six monographs on postsecondary vocational technical programs for deaf students provides data on students' performances on the Stanford Achievement Test, General Aptitude Test Battery and the Nonreading Measure of General Intelligence, and the Weschler Adult Intelligence Scale. Ss consisted of 28 students from Delgado Junior College, 26 from Seattle Community College, and 30 from the Technical Vocational Institute. A description of tech test, its limitations and qualifications, and its methods and procedures is provided in addition to test data. Test results are discussed, and educational implications such as the following are drawn: that most deaf people achieve at levels far below what might be expected on the basis of their intellectual abilities; that the more a particular area is related to facility in the English language the greater is the gap between potential and performance for typical deaf students; and that it is unreasonable to expect vocational technical programs to provide deaf students with the English language skills they have not acquired in 12 years or more of prior schooling.
