Applying Systems Research in Education.
Ryan, T. Antoinette, Ed.
This publication brings together seven papers exemplifying the systems approach to educational decision making. The first discusses the need for inclusion of constituent values in educational decision making strategies to properly apply systems theory concepts. In the second, which addresses systems design for problem solving in schools, recommendations are presented for the school staff to more effectively cope with change and the change process. The third discusses a model of seven functions in the passage and implementation of school law to facilitate special education legislation. A dissemination model known as MOD, designed to determine the process by which an intermediate state agency could act as a linking agent between developers and classroom users of educational products, is described in the fourth paper. The fifth presents a systems view of learning focused education, defines LFE, develops a systems model, and presents a learner system. In the sixth, the three major elements of a career education delivery system are defined and the relationships among the planning, implementing, and evaluating activities are developed. The final paper discusses educational program evaluation and shows the value of system design in method selection and the analysis and interpretation of data. (Author/RAA)
