Individual Guidance in a CCC Camp: Its Effect upon Participation and Quality of Work in a Voluntary Educational Program. Bulletin, 1939, No. 7
Office of Education, United States Department of the Interior
It is now recognized that neither the Civilian Conservation Corps nor an individual camp can operate efficiently without an effective guidance program. Its results are directly reflected in the morale of the corps, the efficiency of its administration, and the amount and quality of the work accomplishments. Kirkland Sloper, adviser in Company 127, Pittsfield, Massachusetts, has developed a technique that is worthy of passing on to all Civilian Corps officials. Moreover, he conceived the idea of measuring the results of his guidance methods in order to ascertain their relative values. The results of the tests show clear evidence that with all other factors held equal, individual guidance increased participation of one group in the educational program more than twofold and have an equally marked effect on the quality of the educational work performed. The purpose of this study was to determine the effects of individual guidance upon participation and quality of work in a voluntary Civilian Conservation Corps educational program. The results, measured in quantitative terms, help to justify or lessen the emphasis now placed on individual counseling in the camp educational program. Case numbers 1 through 5 are appended. (Contains 22 tables and 12 footnotes.)
