To evaluate the Utah State Board of Education's Integrated Shop Program (ISP) for small rural high schools, 7 ISP schools in their 2nd year (1970-71) of the ISP were compared on 3 measures to 2 selected control schools (small rural high schools that offered vocational agricultural mechanics and industrial arts but did not offer formal courses in drafting or power mechanics). On pre- and post-tests designed for the ISP, 9th and 10th graders in the control schools performed better in the areas of woodwork, building construction, and metal fabrication but did not perform as well in drafting and power mechanics as did students in the ISP schools; the overall average significantly (.05 level) favored the ISP students. On the Cooperative Industrial Arts Tests, prepared and standardized by the Educational Testing Service, the ISP 9th and 10th graders scored significantly higher (0.5 level) in drawing than the control students but fared the same as the control students in the areas of woods, metals, and electricity/electronics. This test battery was also administered to the 9th-grade industrial arts students at 2 Utah urban junior high schools; these students scored better in all areas than either ISP or control students (significant difference was reached at the .05 level in all areas except woods). On the Stanford Achievement Test--High School Technical Comprehension, 11th- and 12th-grade control students scored higher (but not significantly at the .05 level) than the corresponding ISP students.
