Described is a Social Learning Curriculum (SLC) field test model that focuses on aspects of personnel utilization, communication systems, and the quality of human communication and that highlights the role of the supervisor in the education of the mentally retarded. The four field test model phases discussed are 1) the planning phase (including evaluation requirements and identification of relevant populations), 2) the procedural development phase (including hierarchical communication and involvement, the field test teacher, and developing operation guidelines), 3) the field test initiation phase (including the identification of field sites and the orientation of local personnel), and 4) the field test maintenance and renewal phase (including maintenance functions, materials support, and renewal functions).
