The first paper, Improving Process Education: A Comprehensive Plan by Burton G. Andreas, describes the comprehensive plan and introduces the succeeding papers.

The other papers are: 1) Analysis of Process Curricula, by Henry P. Cole and Albert Seferian; 2) Curriculum Augmentation and Validation, by Henry P. Cole; 3) Curriculum Installation and Diffusion Strategies, by James M. Mahan; 4) Evaluation of Curricular Programs, by Richard C. Wallace, Jr. and Richard Shavelson; and, 5) Variables Affecting Installation by Richard S. Andrulis. References and statistical tables are included. (Author/DJB)
