Cant, Malcolm J.
The study surveyed 80 young adults (50 male, 30 female) referred through I.E.P.A. (Individualized Educational Program for Adults) for students with learning problems who wish to acquire preemployment skills and/or to improve their vocational status by upgrading their educational level. The pre- and postassessment was conducted in the areas of word reading, oral reading, mathematics, spelling, and written expression. Results included that males made greater improvement than females per month in oral reading--passages, reading comprehension--passages, and spelling; while females' improvement per month exceeded males' in oral reading--single word, mathematics, and expressive language--written.
