Evaluation of the Academic Occupational Program of the County of Leduc, From September, 1981 to June, 1984. Executive Summary.
Nyberg, V. R.
The paper reports results of an academic occupational program intended for educable mentally handicapped and learning disabled secondary students in Leduc, Alberta. An introduction reviews history of the program and the evaluation process. The evaluation plan, based on R. Stake's model for program evaluation, is described, and sources of data (including Canadian achievement tests, attitude measures, and self-concept measures) are noted. Testing schedules, data collection and analysis processes are reported. A chapter on results is organized according to program rationale, intents, observations, standards, and judgements. A summary chapter lists findings, including high quality personnel, excellent morale, excellent intra-staff communication, satisfactory academic achievement for students, and positive attitudes of staff, students, and parents toward the program. Among the recommendations made are those calling for preservation of the program's special education emphasis, more formal inservice education, and development of access to community settings. (CL)
