INDIVIDUALIZING THE INSTRUCTIONAL PROGRAM.
ESBENSEN, THORWALD
AS STRESSED AND ILLUSTRATED THROUGHOUT THE DISCUSSION, AN INDIVIDUALIZED LEARNING PROGRAM OR ASSIGNMENT MUST INCLUDE OBJECTIVES WHICH ARE EXPRESSED IN TERMS OF SPECIFICALLY OBSERVABLE BEHAVIOR. THESE OBJECTIVES FALL WITHIN FOUR CATEGORIES OF INTELLECTUAL TASKS--KNOWLEDGE, COMPREHENSION, APPLICATION, AND INVENTION. TO ASSESS A STUDENT'S ACHIEVEMENT OF A PARTICULAR OBJECTIVE OR TASK, THE CLASSROOM TEACHER MIGHT USE A "CURRICULUM MAP," AN EXAMPLE OF WHICH IS INSERTED IN THIS REPORT. INDIVIDUALIZING INSTRUCTION MODIFIES THE ROLE OF THE TEACHER, AND INSTEAD OF CONFRONTING A GROUP OF STUDENTS WITH A COLLECTION OF FACTS, HE ENGAGES EACH STUDENT IN THE ACTUAL PROCESS OF ACQUIRING AND GENERATING KNOWLEDGE. SAMPLE INDIVIDUALIZED ASSIGNMENTS, WITH OBJECTIVES EXPRESSED IN TERMS OF A"CRITERION PERFORMANCE," ARE APPENDED. (LB)
