Research, Development and Validation of the Daily Demand Computer Schedule 360/50. Final Report.
Ovard, Glen F.; Rowley, Vernon C.
A study was designed to further the research, development and validation of the Daily Demand Computer Schedule (DDCS), a system by which students can be rescheduled daily for facilitating their individual continuous progress through the curriculum. It will allow teachers to regroup students as needed based upon that progress, and will make time a tool of the teacher and learner. Specifically, the objectives of this study were to redesign and write the DDCS 7040 computer program for a 360/50 computer, and to validate the new computer schedule with the input data previously used in 40 days of continuous operation on the DDCS 7040 program. A systems analyst and programers determined new parameters required to improve and to generalize the current program to schools of varying size and circumstance, wrote a 360 computer program, and validated the new program with input data previously used during 40 days of consecutive operation. The new program was tested and evaluated in a pilot school. Findings showed that the 360/50 DDCS system was successful, although the program requires additional testing in an operational school to attain optimum efficiency.
