COGSWELL, JOHN F.; AND OTHERS
THE USES OF SYSTEMS ANALYSIS AND COMPUTER SIMULATION OF SCHOOL ORGANIZATION WERE EXPLORED TO FIND NEW WAYS TO IMPLEMENT INSTRUCTIONAL MEDIA. THE USES OF SYSTEMS ANALYSIS RECOMMENDED WERE--(1) TO FACILITATE IMPROVEMENT OF PRESENT INSTRUCTIONAL AND EDUCATIONAL PLANNING SYSTEMS AND (2) TO EXPLORE THE FEASIBILITY OF PROPOSED SCHOOL ORGANIZATIONS. THE RECOMMENDED PROCEDURES FOR USE OF SYSTEMS ANALYSIS WERE--(1) DEFINE THE MAJOR OVERALL PROBLEM TO BE SOLVED, (2) MODEL THE SYSTEM, AND (3) USE THE MODEL TO STUDY THE EFFECTS OF CHANGES OF THE SYSTEM. A TECHNIQUE CALLED "EDSIM" WAS DEVELOPED AS PART OF THE PROJECT TO MODEL A SYSTEM BY MEANS OF A COMPUTER PROGRAM. FOLLOWING 11 ANALYSES OF SCHOOL ORGANIZATIONS, IT WAS CONCLUDED THAT ALTERING SCHOOL ORGANIZATIONS TO ACCOMMODATE INDIVIDUAL DIFFERENCES OF STUDENTS REQUIRES (1) ADEQUATE SELF-STUDY INSTRUCTIONAL MATERIALS, AND (2) ADEQUATE SYSTEMS TO PROVIDE INFORMATION TO INSTRUCTORS, COUNSELORS, AND ADMINISTRATORS ABOUT THE STATUS OF INDIVIDUAL STUDENTS. TO MEET THESE NEEDS, THE INVESTIGATORS RECOMMENDED (1) CONTINUED DEVELOPMENT OF THE COMPUTER-BASED SYSTEM TO ASSIST STUDENTS AND COUNSELORS IN PLANNING, (2) CONTINUED STUDY OF THE USE OF INFORMATION PROCESSING FOR STUDENT INSTRUCTION, (3) INSERVICE TRAINING OF SELECTED SCHOOL PERSONNEL IN THE PREPARATION OF INDIVIDUALIZED COURSE MATERIALS, AND (4) DEVELOPMENT OF PROCEDURES FOR THE MANAGEMENT OF CHANGES IN SCHOOLS.
