A 2-year project provided inservice training to school personnel involved in vocational education and placement of trainable mentally retarded students in Pennsylvania. Project activities included a review of the literature, the development of task analysis training techniques, the compilation of a procedural manual and a job placement guidebook, the development of inservice training procedures, and the dissemination of training techniques. Program evaluation included summative and formative phases, the use of locally constructed questionnaires, and voluntarily arranged on-site visits by selected experts. Among dissemination activities were presentation at meetings of professional organizations, distribution of curriculum monographs to appropriate Pennsylvania agencies, and distribution of sound slides and a sound movie illustrating training techniques and task analysis. Two major curriculum guides were produced: Volumes VI and VII of the series, "Training for Independence" ("Preacademic Skills" and "Prevocational Skills"). Models for use of criterion referenced measurements, task analysis techniques, and methods-time-measurement procedures were conceptualized and disseminated through professional agency channels.
