Systematic and Sequential Evaluation for Individualizing Instruction. A Report of a Workshop.
The Olympia, Washington, Public Schools report a workshop held to design a program for collecting and organizing information on the total student growth necessary for developing a curriculum for individualized instruction. In addition to student records, information was needed on (1) learning styles, (2) interest areas, (3) physical development patterns, (4) subject area strengths and weaknesses, (5) social relationships, and (6) family social-cultural expectations. Areas of effect on students were expected to be (1) cognitive, (2) physical, and (3) social-emotional. The workshop stressed four areas: (1) educational philosophy and goals, (2) identification of significant data, assessment techniques, and systems of constructive information, (3) development of a testing program, and (4) implementation of philosophy, assessment techniques, and use of meaningful data to define and reach target audiences. The present report is essentially divided according to these areas, with the addition of sections on evaluation and perspectives. This project was funded under a Title III, Elementary and Secondary Education Act grant. (BP)
