Individualization of Education in Career Education. Final Report.
Dunn, James A.; And Others
Individualization of education has been variously defined, from fairly narrow and circumscribed to fairly extensive and comprehensive definitions. The development of a comprehensive procedure for the individualization of education involves consideration of such factors as family/personal, instructional systems, data access, and decision rule factors. In order to be effective, a comprehensive empirically-oriented system for individualized career education must have such attributes as: (1) a cross-indexed set of instructional resources, (2) the identification of the individual student's long-range goals, (3) a bank of data with regard to the individual, his interests, and abilities, (4) a specification of state and local school system requirements, (5) an information system to provide for the confluence of these data, and (6) a set of decision rules whereby educational planning can be effected. Included in this publication are chapters providing: (1) definitions of individualization of education, (2) descriptions of early and contemporary efforts at individualization, and (3) discussions of the attributes of a successful individualized career education program.
