IPI and Behavior: An Evaluation of Cognitive and Affective Change. Research Monograph 2.
Spinks, Nellie J.
The Individually Prescribed Instruction (IPI) program provides instruction based on specific objectives correlated with placement instruments, teaching methods, and individualized materials for wide ranges of differences in the classroom. The program was implemented in the five elementary schools of Lowndes County, Georgia, in 1970-72. This study was conducted to determine the effectiveness of the second year of the IPI program relative to the objectives and needs assessment of the Lowndes County Schools. Based on the analysis of experimental and control student scores, the dimension of student achievement appears to have been differentially affected by the IPI program. The findings of this study suggested six recommendations: (1) the IPI program should be continued; (2) a study should be made on the time demanded; (3) a committee should conduct a study on the demand for services; (4) techniques for community involvement should be continued; (5) expanding the program should be considered; and (6) a program for gifted children should be developed.
