A Process Evaluation: The Fall 1972 Follow-up. A Supplement to the 1971-72 Nationwide Installation of the Multiunit/IGE Model for Elementary Schools.
Ironside, Roderick A.
The followup study reported here is a supplement to the process evaluation of the 1971-72 multiunit school organization/individually guided education (MUSE/IGE) nationwide installation effort by the Wisconsin Research and Development Center. The major purpose of the followup study was to determine basic implementation status in a number of schools -- at about the midpoint of the second year of the overall installation program -- using selected criteria related to both MUSE and IGE programing. In all, 98 schools were chosen for the followup phase, including (a) the sample of 68 which had been selected for detailed reporting in Spring 1972, (b) 13 schools which had reported initiating MUSE/IGE in late Spring 1972, and (c) 17 schools which had indicated plans for 1972-73 installation. Evidence shows that the MUSE/IGE organizational and instructional changes have taken hold in the majority of schools responding to the followup. Apparently attrition has been slight if existent at all, and many schools have come closer to institutionalizing the two areas of innovation. Related documents are ED 066 623 and ED 066 624.
