Mt. Hood Community College (Oregon), International Brotherhood of Teamsters, Union Local 162, Fred Meyer, Inc., and Oregon Trucking Association, Inc. offered training to improve study, test taking, and basic and critical reading skills and prepare drivers to pass the Commercial Driver's License test before April, 1992. Training was targeted for drivers who needed study and learning skills and those who needed a modified version of the manual to become competent to pass the examination. The Teamsters provided the primary recruitment efforts. Curriculum content was determined from responses to the student needs surveys. The union provided a room at their meeting hall for the training. (The four-page report is followed by appendixes that contain supplemental and more detailed information on the project. Appendix I outlines project objectives, methods, and evaluation criteria. It also contains sample and completed needs assessment instruments and staff reports of participants' feedback. Appendix II provides specific participant data and hours of attendance. Completed post-program participant survey sheets are found in appendix III. Appendix IV consists of sample materials, including record sheets; pretests; SQRRR--Survey, Question, Read, Review, Recite--Study Guide, Test Taking Skills; practice tests and keys; and pretrip inspection for Washington. Appendix V lists these types of source materials: books, videotapes, audiotapes, persons contacted, posters and forms, and additional references.) (YLB)
