Project PASS: 1982-83 Final Technical Report [and Appendixes].
The Austin Independent School District presents the 1982-83 final technical report of Project PASS, which employs the notion of cultural congruence in instruction or culture-specific instruction to explain the poor performance of black students in school. It encouraged teachers to change their perspective about black students who are not performing well in school. Before concluding something is wrong with the student, teachers are encouraged to analyze the instructional process. Project PASS has further acquainted teachers with the socialization practices of the black culture and the general learning styles emanating from it. A system for developing individualized learning programs for black students based on the concepts of the project was developed and piloted. The introduction, implementation, and impact of the project are discussed in a question/answer format. The appendixes (the greater part of the document) present an instrument description, which includes the purpose, procedure and results, for the following: (1) Iowa Tests of Basic Skills, (2) Office of Student Affairs' Discipline File, (3) Special Education Management System File, (4) Principal Interview, (5) Project PASS Teacher Trainer Interview, (6) Project PASS Instructional Coordinator Interview (7) Administrator Survey, (8) Teacher Survey, and (9) Project PASS Teacher Survey.
