SWRL Communication Skills Programs: Quality Assurance Information for the 1973-74 Academic Year.
Hanson, Ralph A.; And Others
This document reports on the quality assurance aspects of the tryout of three SWRL (Southwest Regional Laboratory) Communication Skills Programs: Reading, Composition, and Expressive Language. The sample population was both large and diverse, and a pattern of high proficiency was achieved both within program blocks or levels and across program outcomes. Although placement of pupils in the ordered levels did show indications of being influenced by biosocial characteristics, pupil performance in the program appeared strong against pupil and school characteristics popularly believed to make for an instructional "disadvantage." This document describes in detail the biosocial characteristics of the population, the level outcome proficiency, and the outcome proficiency by user characteristics for all three communication skills programs.
