EDUCATIONAL ESCALATION THROUGH SYSTEMS ANALYSIS, PROJECT ULTRA.
New York Inst. of Tech., New York.
PROJECT ULTRA, UNLIMITED TRAINING FOR ALL, IS FOUNDED ON THE ASSUMPTION THAT THROUGH A SYSTEMS APPROACH TO EDUCATION, A MODEL EDUCATIONAL SYSTEM WILL EVOLVE WHICH CAN BE IMPLEMENTED ON A MASS BASIS. THE INVENTORY AND POTENTIAL OF EACH INDIVIDUAL IN A HETEROGENEOUS POPULATION WOULD BE MATCHED TO HIS SUBSEQUENT CAREER ENVIRONMENT. THE DOOR TO EDUCATIONAL ESCALATION WOULD NEVER BE CLOSED. IT SHOULD PROVIDE THE METHODOLOGIES AND RESOUCES TO DEVELOP HUMAN TALENT IN AN OPTIMAL WAY WITH A HIGH PROBABILITY OF ATTAINMENT. A PRIME OBJECTIVE IS TO EXTEND THE RANGE OF COLLEGE OPPORTUNITY TO STUDENTS, WHO, UNDER CONVENTIONAL EDUCATIONAL PRACTICES, WOULD BE DEPRIVED OF THIS EDUCATIONAL POSSIBILITY. SEVERAL PROGRAMS ARE RELATED TO PROJECT ULTRA THROUGH A COMPUTER-ORIENTED INFORMATION CENTER--THE DIAGNOSTIC EXAMINATIONS CENTER, WHERE A SERIES OF ACHIEVEMENT EXAMINATIONS ARE ADMINISTERED TO PLACE STUDENTS, THE INSTITUTIONAL OFF-CAMPUS PROGRAM, WHICH IS COMPOSED OF INDUSTRIALLY RELATED INSTITUTIONS, AND THE SELF-ORGANIZING COMPUTER-BASED EXPERIMENTAL PROGRAMS, WHICH ALLOW FOR INDIVIDUALIZED OPTIMAL REQUIREMENTS WHILE DISPENSING WITH ARBITRARY TIME LIMITATIONS.
