Fault Tree Analysis: Its Implications for Use in Education.
Barker, Bruce O.
This study introduces the concept of Fault Tree Analysis as a systems tool and examines the implications of Fault Tree Analysis (FTA) as a technique for isolating failure modes in educational systems. A definition of FTA and discussion of its history, as it relates to education, are provided. The step by step process for implementation and use of FTA is described, and current applications of FTA to education are analyzed. A Fault Tree prototype is presented to suggest solutions to a problem in private education. A glossary is given in the Appendix, as well as a schematic of a prototype FTA. (RAO)
