An Analysis of a Guaranteed Achievement Program to Achieve Specific Educational Objectives, or Performance Contracting, Chicago Style.
Carpenter, James L.
The components of an educational program, designed to ensure the attainment of specific objectives, are described. Program objectives included the introduction of a new individualized instructional system operating within the same constraints experienced by public school staff, insurance that each child in the program would receive his fair share of instruction, and insurance that children would be validly measured on criterion and norm referenced tests. The effectiveness of the program's components in attaining these objectives is discussed. Observations concerning the efficiency of performance contracting as a procedure for bringing about change also are presented. (Author)
