A Profile of the Mainstreamed EMR.
Shepherd, Margaret L.; Young, Jerry L.
A survey of 54 teachers and 12 educable mentally retarded (EMR) secondary students was conducted to determine the academic, social, and emotional-psychological adjustment of mainstreamed EMR students. Separate questionnaires were developed and administered to teachers and EMR students. Results revealed teachers' somewhat negative perceptions of the students' academic performance and emotional-psychological adjustment. Teachers perceived the students as generally well liked and fairly friendly. Students' self perceptions included general satisfaction with their academic performance and confidence in their own abilities despite feelings of failure when they cannot perform. (CL)
