Research Procedures for Comprehensive Educational Planning: Curriculum and Instructional Practices.
Street, Paul; And Others
This is a compendium of research instruments and procedures concerned with the school curriculum and instructional practices for developing a data base to be used in comprehensive educational planning. The instruments and procedures were designed and tested with the cooperation of the boards of education, administrators, teachers, students, and parents in two Kentucky school districts, and they can be used individually or as a data gathering kit. The "kit" includes a device to obtain a composite view of what administrators and teachers regard as the purposes of education; instruments to obtain the opinions of professional educators and parents concerning the basic needs of their respective schools; an instrument to obtain a fast, thorough inventory of instructional practices; a device for determining how teachers view the present organizational structure of their schools and for assessing their preferences of certain kinds of organizational arrangements; and inventory instruments to provide the views of students as to the adequacy of their learning opportunities in school.
