Alberta Dept. of Education, Edmonton. Planning and Policy Secretariat.
The purpose of this project was to implement the principles of Outcome-Based Education (OBE) in the "Fort McMurray (Alberta, Canada) Roman Catholic Separate School District (RCSSD) No. 32" and to collect data related to student achievement, responsibility, and attitudes in mathematics to help assess the effects of the implementation. This report tells the story of the OBE project as conducted in one elementary school and one high school. Chapter 1 provides a brief description of the district, the project purposes, and the implementation processes. The literature and research which provided a support basis for the project are presented in Chapter 2. Chapter 3 provides a description of the action research design. The OBE model is discussed in Chapter 4, followed in Chapter 5 by findings in the areas of student achievement, responsibility, and attitudes. Implications of the project for the district and other jurisdictions are discussed in Chapter 6. Appended are additional statistical tables, a summary of stakeholder responses, a sample teacher-made test, and a copy of the stakeholder survey forms. (Contains 35 references.) (Author/MDH)
