Correlation of School Instructional Materials to the Social and Prevocational Information Battery.
Texas Education Agency, Austin. Learning Resource Center.
Selected curricula and instructional resources are correlated to items within each subtest of the Social and Prevocational Information Battery (SPIB). SPIB tests include: purchasing habits; budgeting; banking; job-related behavior; job search skills; home management; health care; hygiene and grooming; and functional sign reading. The selections are representative of materials available commercially to train handicapped students and are intended as guidelines in developing Individualized Education Programs (IEP). The information is contained in three columns: (1) the name of the SPIB subtest and related items; (2) names of curricula related to the test items; and (3) instructional resources which pertain to a subskill in the test area. The columns for curricula and resources are not interrelated but each is relevant to the test area. Bibliographic information on the curricula and publishers' addresses are appended. (MH)
