Abstract

This is a report of an Educational Psychology internship at The REFERRAL, EDUCATION, ASSESSMENT AND DEVELOPMENT FOR YOU CENTRE, from April 28 to July 28, 1997. -- The introduction addresses the program options available and why this graduate student considered the internship the most appropriate for him. The introduction also addresses the internship setting, the internship goals, and the supervision and evaluation of the internship. -- Chapter Two describes the activities carried out by the intern to meet the goals. -- The research component, focused on responses selected from a seventy-item questionnaire regarding possible reasons for participation in Adult Basic Education, by twenty- two REFERRAL, EDUCATION, ASSESSMENT AND DEVELOPMENT FOR YOU CENTRE students. Data for the research component were collected through the administration of a two-part survey; one was to gather socio-demographic information (refer to Appendix B, Background Information Sheet), and the other consisted of questions which attempted to operationalize the concept reasons for participation (refer to Appendix C, Motivational Profile Questionnaire). -- Responses were separated into four categories: demographic, program, situational, and psychological. Of the four possible variables the research concluded that, for this particular population presently attending the REFERRAL, EDUCATION, ASSESSMENT AND DEVELOPMENT FOR YOU CENTRE, both psychological and situational variables were the most instrumental motivating forces toward their return and contribution in Adult Basic Education.
