Planning of Objectives, Learning Sequences, and Units for IPI.
Lindvall, C. M.
Individually Prescribed Instruction (IPI) depends upon a structured curriculum made up of sequences of behavioral objectives which the student must master in moving from one level of ability to some subsequent higher level. The curriculum designer has the responsibility of specifying, with varying degrees of exactness, how the typical pupil would move from a beginning level of ability to some final level of ability. An overall sequence spanning several school years may be thought of as progression of units with specific objectives. The term "unit" has a relatively specific meaning when used in the context of the IPI curricula. It involves some unitary ability composed of a limited number of objectives. The overall goal for a unit should be well enough defined so that it describes how a pupil would be evaluated to determine whether or not he had the abilities indicated by the goal of the unit. (JY)
