Results Orientated Workplace Literacy Project.
Farrell, Virginia, Comp.
Cuyahoga Community College's (CCC) Unified Technologies Center (UTC) collaborated with three Cleveland area manufacturing companies in a workplace literacy project. The project provided job-related mathematics and communications programs for 302 employees who needed basic skills upgrading to improve their job performance. The project implementation process involved the following: establishment of an operations/advisory committee; information meetings; instructor selection; basic skills job/task analysis; employee assessment; advising sessions; curriculum design/development; train-the-trainer/instructor orientation; establishment of a multimedia learning center; training; and evaluation activities. Four courses were designed and developed for each company: Mathematics on the Job I and II and Communications on the Job I and II. The objectives for each course differed from company to company, based on the job task analysis and the mathematics and communications requirements of each job. (The 18-page report is accompanied by extensive attachments, including the following: copies of the job task analysis for each of the three partner companies; examples of test results given to each company; samples of the Individual Learning Plan; a course description and general outline for each course; samples of criterion-referenced assessments; reports compiled from student evaluation forms completed at the end of each course; and a final evaluation report.)
