Secondary Education Individualized Instruction Project. A Curriculum/Instruction Study Project. SEIIP Report No. 3.
Ziebarth, Raymond A.; Jones, Virginia C.
The Secondary Education Individualized Instruction Project is an attempt to place the preservice course, SED 351--Teaching in Secondary Schools, on an individualized mode, using a systems-oriented, competency-based approach. During the summer session of 1970, the specification of course objectives and development of instructional packers was accomplished. The course material was divided into 12 units. The package for each unit contained the following elements: student directions, statement of objectives, assignment sheets, supplementary reading materials, and criterion checks. The materials were field tested during the fall semester of the 1970-71 academic year. The major management and record-keeping procedures were also developed during that period. During the spring semester of the same year, a study was conducted in which student achievement and attitudes under the individualized and traditional methods of instruction were compared. No significant difference was found in achievement or achievement gain between both groups, but students in the individualized group were found to have a significantly more positive attitude toward the course. (This final report includes material previously presented in Report Nos. 1 and 2. Appendixes contain copies of forms used, a list of course objectives, and data tables from the comparative study.)
