Minnesota Teamsters Service Bureau, Minneapolis.; Northeast Metro Technical Coll., Minneapolis.
A workplace literacy project was conducted cooperatively through the Minnesota Teamsters Service Bureau and Northeast Metro Technical College. Project objectives, which were met, included the following: (1) establishing a project steering committee; (2) developing workplace literacy curriculum materials and resources specific to commercial vehicle operators (primarily at Consolidated Freightways); (3) training literacy instructors and project staff; (4) conducting training courses for 225-250 commercial vehicle operators in two industry sites using an open-entry/open-exit, competency-based format; (5) developing and making available family support services; and (6) producing and disseminating products and project reports to national, state and local sources. The curriculum materials developed covered these subjects: commercial driver's licence, basic job-related mathematics, reading and comprehension, and computer skills. Analysis instruments, evaluation instruments, and a resource guide were also developed. (This project report includes an evaluation chart, a functional analysis summary report, an evaluation report, training and job skills survey, comprehensive task list, task analysis, supervisor questionnaire, and forms used during the project.)
