Summary of Fiscal Year 1986 Participation in Educational Programs.
Clark, Bud; Davis, Steven
As an initial step toward developing an accountability plan for educational services, the Administrator of Classification and Programs of the Oklahoma Department of Corrections requested an evaluation of services for fiscal year 1986. Data were gathered for 10 educational services programs through logs prepared by teachers and principals. Results were reported in five parts: (1) information concerning the need for educational programs in the Department of Corrections based on the test data provided by psychological staff; (2) a summary of the delivery of educational services to inmates in terms of the number of inmates served; (3) a summary of movement through educational programs; (4) information about the individuals who participated; and (5) the results of the quarterly test data as a measure of program impact. The study concluded that although a great many educational services had been provided, the completion rate was very low. It recommended a series of action steps to improve educational services for incarcerated persons in Oklahoma. (Includes 11 data tables, description and eligibility criteria for offender programs, and a sample class register form.) (KC)
