The Oregon Vo-Tech Math Project. Phase One of Two Final Report.
Oregon State Board of Education, Salem. Div. of Community Colleges and Career Education.; Linn-Benton Community Coll., Albany, OR.
The Oregon Vo-Tech Math Project is designed to provide verbal problem sets for use in vocational education programs in secondary schools and community colleges. A subset of the problem booklets was subjected to evaluation in 12 secondary schools and 7 community colleges in an effort to make the materials more meaningful to students, improve articulation, and investigate the effectiveness of instructional strategies. The problem packages were converted to an individualized format, and a workshop on instructional strategies was conducted prior to implementation. The evaluation instruments consisted of a student form, an instructor form, and the project materials. Nine problem sets classified by mathematics topic were evaluated and revised as a result of the evaluation. This document includes a review of project background and outcomes, description of the evaluation techniques, and conclusions and recommendations. The instruments used and problem solutions are presented in an appendix. Twenty problem packages developed by this project are available. (SD)
