National Regional Resource Center of Pennsylvania. Final Technical Report.
Streissguth, William O.; Goode, Paul
The final report covers activities of the National Regional Resource Center in the area of special education from 1970 through June 30, 1974. Reported is program emphasis on the development of a statewide diagnostic-prescriptive resource system including target classes (which served as data collection points and demonstration classes), self-contained classes (used to test the efficacy of management system of instruction), resource rooms and assessment classes (used to collect information and develop the diagnostic prescriptive model), and the resource data bank (which matched information on materials and methods with specific learning objectives). Specific goals, activities, and results are outlined such as the development of a system for identifying and organizing learning objectives. Final recommendations include continuation and possible revision of the diagnostic prescriptive model, development of a uniform system for the identification and retrieval of special education instructional materials, establishment of a central clearinghouse for processing and evaluating efforts of resource centers, and expansion of inservice education concerning the diagnostic prescriptive process.
