The Development of a Model for Designing Carrel Experiences for Science Students.
Russell, James Douglas
A description of the systems approach to designing of carrel experiences for science students is presented to provide a logical sequence and structure for instructional decisions. A brief historical discussion dating from 1961 and Postlethwait's work at Purdue University is given, and a rationale for the carrel approach is provided. The development of a carrel model is analyzed in connection with: (1) a format for stating behavioral objectives, (2) guidelines for constructing criterion test items, (3) an entry test for prerequisite competency evaluation, (4) criteria for selecting instructional strategies and media, (5) suggestions for student tryout of carrel activities, and (6) formulas for evaluating the carrel effectiveness. An alternative checklist for carrel evaluation is also suggested. Field testing of the developed model indicates that there are many ways of facilitating the development of carrel activities in the school system at all levels. Application of the model to other fields should be fulfilled by instructional developers. Further verification, detailed study, and tryout with a larger population are recommended. (Author/CC)
