Simulation for Determining Student Station Requirements and School Space Needs. A Technical Report.
Florida State Univ., Tallahassee. Educational Systems and Planning Center.
A stochastic simulation model is presented which describes the learning activity in an educational system in terms of pupil flow through student modules and produces a comprehensive picture of utilization during each time period for each activity type. Using this model the decision-maker can choose the optimal configuration of student module patterns on the basis of utilization factors. The simulator can also facilitate decisions for school construction by producing the basic data and flexibility required to accommodate any educational pattern. This report describes the model in mathematical and diagrammatic terms and tests the model using data from a local high school. (Author/JY)
