The Florida Educational Research and Development Program. First Annual Report.
Florida State Dept. of Education, Tallahassee. Div. of Elementary and Secondary Education.
This educational research and development program was designed to improve education and to provide instruments for making significant educational decisions related to the efficiency and effectiveness of programs. The first year was used to plan and identify tasks and goals. Individualized instruction was considered a vital component. It was agreed that an instrument for assigning quality assessments to educational tasks had to be constructed and that a system of cost analysis should be devised. The nine elements of the recommended program are 1) evaluation of educational outcomes in terms of student performance; 2) development of a system for determining the cost of various approaches for using educational resources; 3) determination of the validity and effectiveness of school staffing patterns; 4) development of an individualized instruction model for elementary education; 5) development and evaluation of a system of student participation in instruction; 6) study, development, and demonstration of new modes of community-school cooperation; 7) development of technology for state-wide planning; 8) development of new techniques and materials for teacher training; and 9) review of patterns, mixes, and mechanisms in developmental capital applied to these programs. A description of each program is included, together with procedures and expected outcomes, and a recommended timetable covering a period of five years is outlined. (MBM)
