Abstract:

A demonstration project was conducted in Alabama to create a basic skills workplace curriculum that would assist a local corporation in improving work force productivity. During the 3-year project, a job-specific curriculum was written for Russell Corporation's Skills Training at Russell (star) program. The curriculum covered four topics: safety, vocabulary and forms, statistical process control, and teamwork. An adult education supervisor's handbook was also developed during the project. Results of a summative evaluation on the safety section of the curriculum showed the following: 83 percent of the participants achieved at least 80 percent mastery of the developed materials; approximately 70 percent stated that their attitude toward safety changed as a result of the program, and 85 percent agreed that they were more aware of safety signs, rules, and procedures. Recommendations were made to train a Russell Corporation employee to write and upgrade the curriculum and to train other workplace education specialists. (This document includes the adult education supervisor's handbook, curriculum samples from the safety and vocabulary and forms sections, and workplace education practicum samples.) (Kc).
