THE CHANGE CONTINUUM AND ITS RELATION TO THE ILLINOIS PLAN FOR PROGRAM DEVELOPMENT FOR GIFTED CHILDREN.
GUBA, EGON G.
THE PROCESS OF TRANSLATING EDUCATIONAL RESEARCH INTO IMPROVED EDUCATIONAL PRACTICE IS DEFINED IN A FOUR-PHASE LINEAR TAXONOMY OF RESEARCH, DEVELOPMENT, DIFFUSION, AND ADOPTION. A SCHEMA DEVELOPING THESE PHASES OF THE CHANGE CONTINUUM DEFINES SPECIFIC OBJECTIVES, CRITERIA FOR EVALUATION, AND RELATION TO CHANGE. RESEARCH ACTIVITY IS LIMITED TO INQUIRY AND EXPERIMENTATION. DEVELOPMENT ACTIVITY INCLUDES THE INVENTION BASED ON RESEARCH AND THE DESIGN FOR INNOVATION OF THE INVENTION. TEACHER PARTICIPATION IN THIS DEVELOPMENT PROCESS IS ENCOURAGED. DIFFUSION ACTIVITY INVOLVES THE CREATION OF AWARENESS OF THE INVENTION AMONG POTENTIAL USERS. ADOPTION ACTIVITY INCLUDES TRIAL OR TEST OF FEASIBILITY, INSTALLATION OF THE INNOVATION, AND INSTITUTIONALIZATION (PROCESS BY WHICH THE INNOVATION BECOMES AN INTEGRATED AND ACCEPTED COMPONENT OF THE EDUCATIONAL PROGRAM). AN ILLUSTRATIVE CRITIQUE OF THE ILLINOIS PLAN FOR PROGRAM DEVELOPMENT FOR GIFTED CHILDREN IS INCLUDED WHICH ASSESSES THE PLAN IN RELATION TO THE FOUR MAJOR TAXONOMIC PHASES. THIS PAPER WAS DELIVERED TO A CONFERENCE ON EDUCATIONAL CHANGE (URBANA, MARCH 1, 1966). (JK)
