Development and Utilization of Metric Education Instructional Materials in Vocational, Technical, and Adult Education: Final Report.
Cooper, Gloria S.; Magisos, Joel H.
Organization of this final report is based on the six major objectives of the project: To compile an annotated bibliography on metric education for vocational, technical, and adult education; to develop a position paper on metric education for the same target audiences; to develop and field-test metric packages for 75 vocational, technical program areas, grades 10-14 (77 areas were included); to develop and field-test metric instructional materials for adult basic education; to develop an inservice workshop plan for the metric materials and conduct the workshops in each of the 10 U.S. Office of Education (USOE) regions; and to develop an implementation guide for installing the metric packages in ongoing programs. Each chapter of the report discusses one of these objectives by describing the activities necessary to accomplish the objective, presenting the problems encountered and their solutions, and including the recommendations. Appendixes encompassing three-fourths of the document contain such related materials as references, research and evaluation instruments, schedules, and lists of participants. (BM)
