Appendix N. Implementation of the RUPS System in a Total School District.
Jung, Charles; And Others
The implementation in a school district of the Research Utilization and Problem Solving (RUPS) System is demonstrated. RUPS is an instructional system for an inservice program designed to provide the needed competencies for an entire staff to engage in systems analysis and systems synthesis procedures prior to assessing educational needs and developing curriculum to meet the needs identified. Thirteen instructional problems (or instructional subsets) necessitating research utilization and problem solving skills are delineated: identifying a problem, using research about the classroom, diagnosis using force field technique, diagnosing teamwork relationship, data gathering skills, selecting tools for data collection, spotting the major results in data, anchored trainer ratings, the concept of feedback, deriving implications and action alternatives, planning for action, small group dynamics, planning for action practicum. Instructional/learning objectives and product performance specifications are provided for each instructional subset. Where appropriate, instructional strategy steps and materials are also specified. This document and SP 002 155-SP 002 180 comprise the appendixes for the ComField Model Teacher Education Program Specifications in SP 002 154. (SG)
