The Development and Evaluation of a System for the Design of Instructional Plans and Resource Allocation.
Parker, Reese
The development and evaluation of a system for designing instructional plans and resource patterns for those plans are described. Development of the system, which was in three stages, was based on the premise that decisions concerning efficient allocation of resources and the use of resources for effective instruction cannot realistically be made in isolation of one another. Brief descriptions of the conceptual and procedural stages of development are given, but the focus is on the first formative evaluation and revision of the system. The initial version of the unit design component subjected to formative evaluation and revision consisted of eight steps: (1) setting the frame of reference for planning and checking planning materials; (2) selecting and sequencing objectives; (3) assigning objectives to domains of learning; (4) selecting instructional procedures; (5) formulating an instructional strategy; (6) allocating resources; (7) delivering plans to administrative and clerical personnel for costing; and (8) removing constraints regarding implementation of the instructional strategy. Teachers performed these eight steps, and their efforts and resulting plans were analyzed to determine whether the procedures were effective and all objectives were met. Revisions were made in the procedures based on the analysis. (KM)
