The remaining monographs, 2 through 9, contain the following: (2) discussion of developmental student recruitment and selection; (3) review of diagnostic and prescriptive procedures in the light of individual and group concerns; (4) exmination of factors impinging on program development particularly for reading, writing, and study skills components; (5) presentation of considerations related to staffing and facilities; (6) exploration of comprehensive (student, staff, and program-centered outcomes) evaluation standards; (7) inspection of factors involved in program cost analysis; (8) presentation of an approach to staff development; and (9) summarization of study findings and follow-up implications. Most of the monographs are formatted as follows: problems and issues, recommendations and implications, potential impact, and guide questions for considering program standards. (CSS)
