The Role of Evaluation in Programs for Individualized Instruction.
Lindvall, C. M.; Cox, Richard C.
The term evaluation is used here to mean either the procedure of gathering pupil data to use in planning and monitoring individual programs or the procedure of gathering and analyzing data in such a way that it leads to improvements in materials and in the instructional system. The author reviews the Winnetka Plan and the Eight-Year-Study. He then proposes a model which makes use of criterion-based measures of pupil achievement and demonstrates how this evaluation program is carried out using the program for Individually Prescribed Instruction as an example. He describes the computer-based instruction program, the Bucknell Continuous Progress plan, and Project PLAN, together with their measures for evaluation. Some future directions are suggested for evaluation procedures in programs for individualized instruction. (JY)
