A PLAN FOR FIELD TESTING R/I UNITS.
WARDROP, JAMES L.; AND OTHERS
THIS PAPER DISCUSSES THE FIELD TESTING OF RESEARCH AND INSTRUCTION UNITS IN OPERATION IN A NUMBER OF WISCONSIN SCHOOLS. THE UNIT IS A REORGANIZED SCHOOL STRUCTURE WHICH IS MADE UP OF A LEARNING SPECIALIST LEADER, TEACHERS, PARAPROFESSIONALS, AND STUDENTS. THE MAJOR AIMS OF THIS EDUCATIONAL INNOVATION ARE (1) TO DEVELOP AND MAINTAIN AN "EXEMPLARY INSTRUCTION PROGRAM" WITH INDIVIDUALIZED TEACHING AND INCREASED MOTIVATION, (2) TO CONTINUOUSLY IMPROVE THE PROGRAM "THROUGH INNOVATION, DEVELOPMENT, AND RESEARCH," AND (3) TO DIFFUSE EFFECTIVE PRACTICES WITHIN THE SCHOOL AND THROUGHOUT THE SYSTEM. THE PAPER CONTAINS A DISSCUSSION OF THE KINDS OF DATA WHICH ARE NEEDED TO EVALUATE THE SCHEME, THE VARIOUS POSSIBLE FIELD TESTING DESIGNS, THE INSTRUMENTS, AND THE PERSONNEL. IT ALSO HAS DESCRIPTIONS OF RESEARCH EFFORTS IN FOUR SCHOOL SYSTEMS. AN APPENDIX CONTAINS SAMPLES OF OPINION SCALES, CHECKLISTS, AND QUESTIONNAIRES GIVEN TO THE STAFF AND STUDENTS. (NH)
