Recent and Potential Application of Engineering Tools to Educational Research.
Taft, Martin I.
This paper presents a summary of some recent engineering research in education and identifies some research areas with high payoff potential. The underlying assumption is that a school is a system with a set of subsystems which is potentially susceptible to analysis, design, and eventually some sort of optimization. This assumption leads to the increased application of engineering techniques which relate inputs and outputs, computer programming, simulation vehicles, control and decision theory, and many other tools to the solution of administrative and teaching problems in education. Some areas dealt with are school management, resource allocation problems, decision rules, curriculum content transmission, and curriculum content allocation. (TT)
