Pima County Workplace Literacy Partnership. Final Report, March 1, 1991-November 30, 1992.
Hellman, Linda
Pima County Adult Education's Workplace Education Project provided workplace education classes at 8 worksites to 322 workers. The worksites included Hughes Aircraft Company; AiResearch Tucson Division; Burr-Brown Corporation; Westward Look Hotel; Tucson Medical Center; Radisson Suite Hotel; Manufacturing & Research, Inc.; and University of Arizona (Facilities Management). All participants were pretested; 249 completers were posttested. Teachers of English for speakers of other languages (ESOL) designed pre- and post-assessments that included speaking, listening, reading, and writing components. Math instructors designed pre- and post-assessments. Reading instructors created a reading assessment using company material. In the writing classes, a student writing sample was taken. (The 12-page report is followed by these appendixes: generic workplace curricula for reading skills, writing skills, math fundamentals, math for statistical process control, algebra, and ESOL; job-specific curriculum matrices; sample company-specific curricula and lessons; sample pre- and post-assessments; sample pre-posttest comparisons: basic math; holistic scoring guidelines for writing sample; sample student needs assessment; sample supervisor needs assessment; sample manager evaluation; sample student course evaluation; and articles about the project. An attached external evaluation report sees the development of assessment instruments as a major contribution.) (YLB)
