An Investigation of Curriculum Development and Evaluation Models with Implications Toward A Systems Approach to Curriculum Development and Evaluation in Occupational Education As Part of the Phase II Report.
Borgen, Joseph A.; Davis, Dwight E.
As part of the Phase II report of the Illinois Occupational Curriculum Project (IOCP), this document summarizes the investigative activities and resulting implications of both Phase I and Phase II. Based on the review of literature, conclusions and implications were stated which included: (1) The alternative strategies for curriculum development available in the literature may be broadly divided into Tylerian Models, Systems Models, and Product Development Models, (2) The state of the art in curriculum development presently evidences little forecasting power as a consequence of the absence of sound scientific of technical theorizing, (3) The development of any evaluation system from among the suggested prototypes should provide the user with flexibility and the opportunity to attend to alternative evaluate procedures, (4) The development of the IOCP Model should attempt to consider the critical aspects of various theories and philosophies of curriculum development, and (5) The IOCP model should attend to the human problems involved in implementation. Phase III of this project will be devoted to pilot testing the model. Related documents are available as VT 014 774 and VT 014 775 in this issue, and ED 050 270. (JS)
