Summative Evaluation: Behavior Management Training Program. Technical Report 31.2.
Brownsmith, Keith; And Others
Presented is the technical report of the Center for Innovation in Teaching the Handicapped behavior management training program designed to provide 86 regular and special education teacher-trainees with the skills necessary for dealing with classroom deviance. Reviewed in part I are the program's purpose (provide training in class management), objectives (which include to increase knowledge of control techniques), and descriptions of the 11 training modules. Outlined in Part II is the purpose of evaluation. The evaluation design is described in part III in terms of the population involved, the measures used, and administration of modules. In part IV, results are presented in table form and discussed for each of the following areas: attitudes toward the program; students' attitudes toward specific program components; trainees knowledge/skills before and after the program; findings from criterion tests administered after each module; frequency of use of various control techniques; findings from simulation exercises; and findings from structured interviews and open-ended questions/comments. In the final section, it is concluded that the training package was viewed by students as a good vehicle for training; that roleplaying was viewed as fundamentally helpful but should perhaps be varied with other formats; and that trainees felt they would like to know more about situational variables with respect to the management problems and data on specific ramifications of the control techniques. Appendixes include sample questionnaires and tests, a list of behavior management control techniques demonstrated and simulated interview questions. (SBH)
