The CAREL Center for Education Diagnosis and Learning: A Self-Correcting Innovative Model.
CAREL Report, n14 p1-8 Fall 1968
The Central Atlantic Regional Educational Laboratory (CAREL) Center for Educational Diagnosis and Learning is a model based on a cybernetic approach for the development of educational programs designed to personalize the student's instructional experiences and humanize his daily living. The CAREL Project has set three major objectives and 12 component subobjectives, projected over a five-year period, which must be accomplished to achieve the full operation of centers. The major objectives include (1) development of a replicable paradigm of educational experiences which can maximize learning oppoerunities within a child's environment and lead to full realization of the potential of children from age two to nine; (2) development and validation of a method for diagnosing the educational needs of these children, using a computer storage and retrieval system to process salient information on each child; and (3) development of a system which will permit reliable and valid measurement of the results of educative strategies employed to personalize instruction for children as well as validation of CAREL's Project during the research, field testing, demonstration, and diffusion stages.
