Dale Avenue Project. A Performance Objective Curriculum for Prekindergarten through Third Grade: Test Manual.
The Dale Avenue Early Childhood Education Project Was developed in the Dale Avenue School in Paterson, New Jersey through funding from the Elementary Secondary Education Act Title III. The Project was validated in 1973 by the standards and guidelines of the U.S. Office of Education as innovative, successful, cost effective, and exportable. As a result, the New Jersey E.S.E.A. Title III program is funding the project as a demonstration site to offer interested educators the opportunity to see the program in operation and receive training in its replication. Materials developed by the program are available at cost. The heart of the Dale Avenue Program, it is stated, is the Performance Objective Curriculum which systematically develops skills in ten critical areas. Another essential component of the program is the use of the Performance Objectives as an evaluation tool. This test manual is divided into two parts. Part One includes the Dale Avenue Screening Tests with a description of how to make and score them. It also includes corresponding Dale Avenue Performance Objective numbers which will aid the teacher as she puts this test information into her record book. Part Two includes Performance Objective Tests in the areas of Listening, Naming, Observation, Speaking and Mathematics, and a description of how to make Classification and Seriation test kits.
