DEVELOPMENT AND EVALUATION OF AN EXPERIMENTAL CURRICULUM FOR THE NEW QUINCY (MASS.) VOCATIONAL-TECHNICAL SCHOOL, THE SEQUENCING OF LEARNING UNITS. SEVENTH QUARTERLY TECHNICAL REPORT.
LECZNAR, WILLIAM B.; MORRISON, EDWARD J.
THE PRINCIPAL GOAL OF PROJECT ABLE IS TO DEMONSTRATE THE INCREASED EFFECTIVENESS OF INSTRUCTION WHERE THE CONTENT IS DERIVED FROM AN ANALYSIS OF DESIRED BEHAVIOR AFTER GRADUATION. IT ALSO ATTEMPTS TO APPLY NEWLY DEVELOPED EDUCATIONAL TECHNOLOGY TO THE DESIGN, CONDUCT, AND EVALUATION OF VOCATIONAL EDUCATION. THIS REPORT CONSIDERS THE PROBLEM OF SELECTING SEQUENCES FOR LEARNING UNITS SO THAT STUDENTS ACQUIRE THE DESIRED PERFORMANCE CAPABILITIES SYSTEMATICALLY AND EFFICIENTLY. SECTION ONE REVIEWS A PLAN WHICH ALLOWS STUDENTS TO QUALIFY FOR SUCCESSIVELY HIGHER-LEVEL JOBS AND PROVIDES A SERIES OF POINTS AT WHICH STUDENTS MAY LEAVE THE CURRICULUM IN ACCORDANCE WITH THEIR CAPABILITIES AND NEEDS. SECTION TWO DISCUSSES AN ANALYTIC PROCEDURE FOR DERIVING LEARNING STRUCTURES, FIRST DESCRIBED BY R. M. GAGNE. IT PROVIDES AN ANALYSIS OF THE KINDS OF PERFORMANCE CAPABILITIES WHICH MUST BE ACQUIRED, RATHER THAN AN ANALYSIS OF SUBJECT-MATTER LOGIC. SECTION THREE REVIEWS THE MAJOR FACTORS AFFECTING A SEQUENCE THROUGH THE EXERCISE OF AVAILABLE SEQUENCE OPTIONS AND BY THE ADDITION, REPETITION, AND DELETION OF UNITS FROM THE SEQUENCE. THE FINAL SECTION OF THE REPORT CONCERNS EMPIRICAL TEST AND REVISION OF THE INITIAL SEQUENCE DESIGN. (PS)
