An Evaluation of the '72 Summer Workshop on Individualized Instruction.
Mohan, Madan; Hull, Ronald E.
This report evaluated a 2-week summer workshop for 37 teachers, supervisors, and administrators involved in the study and implementation of individualized instruction programs in western New York. After a brief introduction, general objectives and planning procedures of the workshop were presented. Participation selection was based on a questionnaire designed to investigate backgrounds, interests, and attitudes toward individualized instruction. An assessment of this questionnaire resulted in the following areas of study covered in the workshop: overview of individualized instruction; curriculum adjustment for individualized instruction; skills training; objectives and organization of individualized instruction; systems of individualized instruction with emphasis on individually guided education, motivation, grouping, scheduling, assessment, and reporting for individualized instruction. The report presented the daily schedules of the workshop. The resulting success of the workshop was reported in two tables of data on the cognitive mastery level in each content area. The results showed an effective change in cognitive behavior in most of the participants. A post-workshop attitudinal questionnaire revealed that the participants' view of the workshop was highly beneficial. Suggestions for future workshops were made and the participant biographical and attitudinal questionnaires were included. The materials used in the workshop were also presented along with correspondence to the participants. (BRB)
