AN EDUCATIONAL THEORY MODEL--(SIGGS), AN INTEGRATION OF SET THEORY, INFORMATION THEORY, AND GRAPH THEORY WITH GENERAL SYSTEMS THEORY.
MACCIA, ELIZABETH S.; AND OTHERS
AN ANNOTATED BIBLIOGRAPHY OF 20 ITEMS AND A DISCUSSION OF ITS SIGNIFICANCE WAS PRESENTED TO DESCRIBE CURRENT UTILIZATION OF SUBJECT THEORIES IN THE CONSTRUCTION OF AN EDUCATIONAL THEORY. ALSO, A THEORY MODEL WAS USED TO DEMONSTRATE CONSTRUCTION OF A SCIENTIFIC EDUCATIONAL THEORY. THE THEORY MODEL INCORPORATED SET THEORY (S), INFORMATION THEORY (I), GRAPH THEORY (G), INTO GENERAL SYSTEMS THEORY (GS), AND WAS CALLED THE "SIGGS" THEORY MODEL. THE ILLUSTRATIVE USE OF THE SIGGS THEORY MODEL INCLUDED--(1) MARKING OFF A SCHOOL AS A SYSTEM, (2) SETTING FORTH VARIABLES OF A SCHOOL AS A SYSTEM, AND (3) RELATING THESE VARIABLES THROUGH SCIENTIFIC HYPOTHESES. THE USE OF THE SIGGS THEORY IN DEVELOPING OTHER THEORY WAS DESCRIBED AS BEING RETRODUCTIVE RATHER THAN REDUCTIVE OR DEDUCTIVE. THIS PAPER IS ONE OF A SERIES OF 11 PAPERS WHICH WILL BE PUBLISHED TO DESCRIBE THE SIGGS THEORY AND THE SIGGS THEORY MODEL BEING DEVELOPED UNDER COOPERATIVE RESEARCH PROJECT E-022. (JM)
