Differential Pacing: An Approach to Compensatory Education.
Cheek, King V.
Discussed is an individualized educational approach based on a student's strengths and weaknesses. On the basis of findings from a battery of diagnostic tests, a college program is worked out which is commensurate with the student's ability and preparation. He advances at his own rate and takes comprehensive examinations when he feels ready. However, this compensatory approach does present some problems in relation to resistance from faculty, students, and parents. Other controversial areas include such administrative issues as (1) testing, placement, and evaluation; (2) curricular programming; (3) measuring and defining progress, and (4) retention and attrition. These are also external problems involved in individual pacing, i.e., Selective Service requirements, conditions imposed by various aid programs, and accreditation issues. Some solutions to these considerations are offered. (NH)
