Miller, Ronald C.; And Others
The report presents evaluation findings of a program designed to provide supplementary education in prevocational and/or daily living skills to children and adolescents in institutions for the neglected and delinquent. Analysis of student achievement data indicated that 96.9% of the students mastered 80% of their short term objectives. A primary strength of the program was its ability to individualize instruction by setting instructional objectives according to the academic ability and length of residency of the student. The bulk of instruction centered on basic pre-vocational and supplementary career education, with a small amount of instruction in daily living skills. Teachers identified the program's short- and long-range practicality as its major strength. (CL)
