SYSTEM DESIGN FOR A CONTINUOUS PROGRESS SCHOOL--COMPUTER SIMULATION OF AUTONOMOUS SCHEDULING PROCEDURES.
COGSWELL, JOHN F.; MARSH, DONALD G.
A COMPUTER SIMULATION OF A CONTINUOUS PROGRESS SCHOOL THAT PERMITS STUDENTS TO SCHEDULE THEMSELVES FOR COURSE WORK ON AN AUTONOMOUS BASIS WAS CONSTRUCTED AND TESTED. THE SYSTEM WAS SET UP TO FREE THE STUDENT FROM THE DISADVANTAGES OF TRADITIONAL PROGRESSION BY ALLOWING HIM TO WORK IN OTHER COURSES WHILE WAITING FOR TEACHING ASSISTANCE IN ANOTHER. PATTERNS OF RESOURCE DEMAND WERE DETERMINED FOR THE ASSIGNMENT OF 100 HIGH SCHOOL STUDENTS TO FIVE COURSES AT ONE TIME. WHENEVER SUCH A STUDENT WOULD REQUIRE HELP, HE COULD FILE A REQUEST FOR HELP AND GO ON TO HIS WORK ON ANOTHER COURSE. THE SYSTEM WAS DEEMED USEFUL FOR EXPANDING SIMULATION CAPABILITY AND FOR EXPLORING ITS USES IN COURSE DESIGHN. IT WAS DEVELOPED IN ASSOCIATION WITH THE CONTINUOUS PROGRESS SCHOOL PLAN OF DR. EDWIN READ OF THE BRIGHAM YOUNG UNIVERSITY LABORATORY SCHOOL. RELATED REPORTS ARE ED 010 561 THROUGH ED 010 563. (GD)
