Marketable Preschool Education, 1975-76. Final Report.
Gotts, Edward E.; And Others
This final report of the Marketable Preschool Education Program (MPEP) discusses (1) a formative evaluation field test of Aids to Early Learning (AEL) materials and (2) the editing, revision and placement (with publishers) of the Home Visitor Training Package. Learning activities files for home and classroom use as well as several parent discussion guides were field tested in 44 sites located in 14 different states. The field tests focused on the usability, content, age-appropriateness and readability of the files and guides. In addition to the formative evaluation of the new materials, a process evaluation of the feasibility of preparing a weekly guide to accompany the television program, "Mister Rogers' Neighborhood," was conducted. Field test data are discussed and recommendations are advanced. Activites related to the publication of the Home Visitor Training Package are indicated. The evaluation forms used as well as inservice material designed to sensitize preschool teachers to dimensions of child development are appended. (Author/RH)
