Monitoring the Progress of the Group in an Individualized Reading Program Based on Behavioral Objectives.
Buchanan, Anne; And Others
An alternative to monitoring instruction via standardized tests is proposed for objective-based individualized instructional programs. The set of behavioral objectives upon which the procedures are based is taken from the Wisconsin Design for Reading Skill Development. Procedures that can be computerized and applied to data from curriculum-embedded assessments and that are straightforward to use when the data is in matrix or keysort form are described. An application in reading is given, and the diagnostics made from the tabular and graphic summaries of the data are illustrated. It is pointed out that when used in conjunction with the setting of performance goals by the staff, the monitoring procedures assist the staff in focusing upon school-wide priorities and the feedback provided annually or at intervals through the school year is used to improve individualized instruction. Tables and graphs are included. (Author/DH)
