Individually Prescribed Instruction, Implication, Procedures, Interest.
Papiernik, Henry J.
A program designed to manage instruction so that each student's work can be evaluated daily with specially designed assignments for each student is described in this report. By means of placement tests, pre-testing, and highly sequenced behavioral objectives, the teacher can prescribe for each student in the class according to his needs. The program also provides for individual diagnosis of skills and abilities by the teacher. In this way the teacher spends most of his time in a 1-1 situation and lecturing to the class is held to a minimum. This program, Individually Prescribed Instruction (IPI), was initiated at the Learning, Research and Development Center at the University of Pittsburgh in 1963 and is now in its seventh year of operation. Presently, approximately 100 schools are participating in this program. (FL)
