Individually Prescribed Instruction--Reading Program.
Bolvin, John O.
A program of individually prescribed reading instruction is described. The model to provide for this individualization consists of the following components: (1) sequentially established curricular objectives stated in behavior terms, (2) a procedure and process for diagnosis of achievement in terms of the objectives, (3) the necessary materials for individualizing learning to provide a variety of paths for mastering any given objective, (4) a system for individually prescribing the learning tasks that the student is ready to undertake, (5) the total school environment including teacher functions and school organization, and (6) strategies for continuous evaluation and feedback of information for teacher decision making. Date collection, record keeping, and the use of information by teachers are essential aspects of this program. Computer assisted management for this project will be in operation by September 1968.
