Behavior Assessment and Modification in the Prescriptive Phase of a Comprehensive Educational Planning System.
Nelson, Dennis E.
Research and development activities related to the Personal and Social Development Program (PSDP) are reviewed. This program is a major element in one of the two components constituting the prescriptive phase of a comprehensive guidance system currently being developed. Clarification of program objectives and assumptions, development of student materials, and preliminary field testing of these materials have for the most part been completed. Controlled experimentation of the effectiveness of Prescribed Learning Experience materials is planned for the forthcoming school year. The prime criterion in such experimentation will be overt change in student behavior and the focus will be upon the extent to which PSDP materials result in desirable modifications in student behavior. It is anticipated that such a program will result in increased student capacity to plan their educational and total career development and to follow through with successful implementation of the plans thus formulated.
