Establishing Educational Priorities Through the Illinois Problems Index. Survey Instruments [and] User's Manual.
Illinois State Office of Education, Springfield.
The Illinois Problems Index (IPI) is used to identify educational problems in a wide range of situations. IPI is composed of a series of three survey instruments, sequenced to provide increasingly specific information about school district problems. The instruments are based on 49 general problem categories, each of which is matched to a set of approximately 20 specific problem statements. The general problem categories are grouped into 12 problem areas: curriculum and instruction in basic skills; physical science; home and health studies; cultural and social studies; arts; intercurricular concepts; special educational services; resource and support services; program planning and development; educational administration and policy; research and evaluation; and state agency support. The IPI model is composed of: organizing a committee; conducting five meetings; administering the survey instruments; and acting on the results. The steps can be implemented in two months. Information on organzing and administering IPI is detailed in the user's manual. (MH)
