130 p. 

A programed shorthand laboratory is one in which prerecorded dictation is available for use by students and teachers either during the class period or during study periods for individual work and skill development. Eight Ohio business education teachers participated in a workshop to--(1) become oriented to the concepts and goals of the electronic shorthand laboratory for the classroom, (2) evaluate the seven electronic dictation systems which were installed by the equipment company representatives and used by the workshop members, and (3) dictate actual shorthand tapes. Consultants from education and industry discussed (1) considerations in setting up a shorthand laboratory, (2) types of laboratories, (3) cost of equipment, (4) provision for monitoring the tapes, (5) channels needed, (6) advantages and disadvantages of shorthand laboratories, (7) acquisition, preparation, and use of tapes, and (8) features of available equipment. The teacher participants dictated 40 tapes in five-word progressions in speeds ranging from 80 to 130 words per minute which will be loaned to manufacturers to enable them to make master tapes for Ohio teachers on a minimum cost basis. The appendixes include a description of a shorthand laboratory, a comparison of eight shorthand laboratory systems, a partial list of manufacturers, and the script used in preparing the tapes. This document is available for $1.35 from Ohio trade and industrial education service, instructional materials laboratory, the Ohio State University, 1885 neil avenue, Columbus, Ohio 43210. (ps)
