State Univ. of New York, Ithaca. Cornell Inst. for Research and Development in Occupational Education.
This publication is intended to be used as a sourcebook and reference by practitioners interested in postsecondary developmental programs, with a particular focus on occupational students. The information presented was derived from a statewide survey of staff members involved in the operation of developmental programs in 51 two-year colleges and 10 Educational Opportunity Centers in New York State (58% responded). Part I, State of the Art, compiles the survey data regarding college and student characteristics, developmental program characteristics, program components, and ratings of program success. Part II, Program Descriptors, describes a composite mythical most successful developmental program, and compares survey responses by the various types of institutions surveyed to the composite profile. Part III, Program Resources, lists recommended resources for reading, writing, study skills, math, and vocational-personal/decision-making programs in regard to desired outcomes, standards of success, strategies/approaches, measurement tools, instructional materials, and modes of instruction, and compiles consensus recommendations for programmatic standards. Part IV, Human Resources, lists respondents willing to serve as contact persons. (BB)
