Three Oregon community colleges collaborated to develop a model program to meet the learning needs of educationally disadvantaged students. The model consists of several Outcome Objectives, or goals for the program. The discussion of each objective includes background information relevant to the specific goal and a description of the methods used to achieve the goal. The objectives for the model are: (1) to identify basic skill levels in reading, writing, and mathematics required for entrance into and successful completion of various programs; (2) to evaluate the effectiveness of existing materials and techniques used with the educationally disadvantaged; (3) to describe a testing, counseling, and advisory service that will identify disadvantaged learners; (4) to identify and recommend methods of recruiting and retaining educationally disadvantaged students; (5) to develop individualized learning programs, specifically in spelling and vocabulary skills; (6) to identify and evaluate curriculum materials and instructional aids; and (7) to develop on-going assessment criteria to monitor students' progress. A substantial portion of the model consists of actual survey instruments, evaluation tools, tests and placement materials, curriculum guides, and bibliographic references. (DR)
