Dade County Public Schools, Miami, FL. Lindsey Hopkins Technical Education Center.
The final performance report of Project Learning TIP (To Improve Productivity), a federally-funded program to improve the work-related skills of Dade County, Florida hospital workers, is presented in seven sections. The first outlines specific project objectives for recruitment, literacy gains, course completion, achievement, English language competency, and job performance and compares them to program accomplishments. The second section examines reasons for the discrepancies found between objectives and accomplishments. Section 3 enumerates participant characteristics. Program information dissemination and evaluation activities are described in two subsequent sections. A brief sixth section notes changes in key personnel during the course of the project. In the final section, a significant development that assures the institutionalization of the project, implementation of computerized learning laboratories in two of the three participating hospitals, is discussed.
