Comprehensive Planning Model for Educational Programs.
Nevada State Dept. of Education, Carson City. Div. of Planning and Evaluation.
The existing crises in the schools show a need for some systematic method of planning that leaves little to chance or opinion and which rests more on the scientific techniques of problem solving. Although the use of a systems approach in public programs is just beginning, it seems to hold considerable promise for education. Hence, the Nevada State Department of Education has designed a model for systematic, comprehensive educational program planning and evaluation which should be applicable to educational problems at any level of operation or complexity. The model provides seven basic steps for a systematic approach to problem solving: needs assessment, problem definition, program development, program operation and evaluation, final analysis of evaluative data, dissemination, and recycle. The approach is predicated on the existence of a workable relationship between goals and objectives. (Author/WM)
