A Second Year Evaluation of Individualized Prescribed Instruction (IPI).
Bailek, Hilton M.; Castro, Barbra
This evaluation report of IPI in its second year concentrates on three main points: student attitudes towards IPI, teacher and student classroom activity and interaction, and student achievement during the school year. An account of overall impressions concludes the report which does not attempt to formalize any conclusions. It stresses, however, the point that IPI is still in its infancy and has a long way to go before it matches the model of individualization of instruction envisioned by its developers. So far it does not begin to do so; for the second year, measured achievement in IPI is less than that observed in non-IPI classes. If this turns out to be the finding in other areas where IPI is being tried out, further development might be needed before the program could merit nationwide dissemination. (GO)
