Putnam, John F., Comp.; Chismore, W. Dale, Comp.
Meaningful evaluation of education requires that information reported by different school systems, states, and regions be comparable. The terminology definitions, and classifications of items in this handbook are intended to provide this needed standardization. The handbook identifies and defines or describes those items of information about curriculum and instruction which should be available on a comparable basis throughout the United States. Items are classified by a graduated numbering system under general headings of: (1) a school system, (2) a school, (3) a program of studies, (4) a self-contained class, course, or co-curricular activity, and (5) a section or instructional service activity.
