Date of this Version

November 1978


The purpose of the present paper is to evaluate the success of the ADAPT program in reaching its goals during the second year. As in the first year of the program, the primary goal was to encourage students to think critically and logically, Secondly, we were interested in providing successful learning experiences that would facilitate personal and social growth. Finally, we hoped that students who were being encouraged to explore a variety of content areas, would feel excitement in learning, and that this would be reflected in positive attitudes toward the whole university community. In short, our goals were to encourage abstract, formal thought patterns, to facilitate personal growth, and to cultivate positive attitudes toward the university.
