SYSTEMS ANALYSIS AND SYNTHESIS APPLIED TO OCCUPATIONAL INSTRUCTION IN SECONDARY SCHOOLS.
SILVERN, LEONARD C.
GOAL OF THIS STUDY WAS TO DETERMINE THE FEASIBILITY OF DEVELOPING A MODEL TO DESCRIBE "REAL-LIFE" FEEDBACK SIGNAL PATHS FROM OUTSIDE THE SECONDARY SCHOOL OR SCHOOL DISTRICT TO AN OCCUPATIONAL TEACHER. AFTER A REVIEW AND EVALUATION OF THE LITERATURE IN SYSTEMS ANALYSIS AND SYNTHESIS SINCE 1914, IT WAS CONCLUDED THAT ATTENTION SHOULD BE DIRECTED TO SYSTEMS THEORY IN DISCIPLINES OTHER THAN EDUCATION. DATA USED TO SYNTHESIZE A FLOW CHART MODEL WAS COLLECTED IN INTERVIEWS WITH EDUCATORS, OCCUPATIONAL DIRECTORS, STUDENTS, AND OTHER PROFESSIONALS, BUT THE TOTAL NUMBER OF INTERVIEWS IS NOT REPORTED. THE CYBERNETIC MODEL INCLUDES 49 CLOSED-LOOP FEEDBACK SIGNAL PATHS, EACH IDENTIFIABLE IN TERMS OF 5 CHARACTERISTICS WHICH IN TURN AFFECT INSTRUCTOR PERFORMANCE. THE MODEL WAS SHOWN TO BE FEASIBLE AND APPLICABLE TO REAL-LIFE. CONTINUING REFINEMENT OF THE LOOPS, USING MATHEMATICAL TECHNIQUES AND REAL-LIFE EXPERIENCES, IS RECOMMENDED. (LH)
