The Computer as a Tool for Curriculum Development and Instructional Management.
Eisele, James E.
The objective of this project was to discover an effective means by which teachers could have available sufficient data to make decisions in order to preplan individual teaching-learning situations. In order to achieve this objective, an electronic information retrieval system was developed. Behavioral objectives, subject-matter statements, suggested instructional procedures, materials and references, and an evaluation procedure were written and each item was assigned an identifying number and symbol. A screen of learner characteristics and professional variables was then used to choose those items which would be the most suitable for each student working on a given topic with a specific teacher. The system was refined through a continuous feedback system. A reference list is provided. Appendices contain the lists of learner variables, professional decision-making variables, and supplemental information about the coding system used. (JY)
