Chapter III provides a chronological view of MAP activities in each of five states (Indiana, Illinois, Michigan, Kentucky, and Ohio) during the years 1975-78. Chapter IV reviews and summarizes a self-evaluation of MAP performed in 1978. Chapter V is a summary of an outside evaluation of MAP conducted in January 1978 by the Indiana Center for Evaluation.
