User's Manual; Descriptor for Individualized Instruction.
DeVault, M. Vere; And Others
Individualized instructional programs arise from varied values, concepts and competencies and hence differ in terminology, goals, strategies and results, making an intelligible view of the field difficult. This manual provides educators with a tool which makes it possible for them to compare different individualized instructional programs by proposing a terminology applicable to all such efforts and by offering a means of identifying, quantifying and describing the significant dimensions of a program's individualization. Ten components of individualized instructional programs are included within the scope of analysis: program context, objectives, learner assessment, sequence, rate, media, grouping, program pattern, record of information, and use of information. The first section of the manual, format, describes the content of each component, including a graphic representation of the component, slides depicting examples of the component, and a general statement about the component's intent. The second section, Illustrative Questions, includes sample queries addressed by each component and slides illustrating answers to these questions. The final section, Definitions, gives a more detailed explication of the terminology used and a more extensive verbal definition of the slides used. (Author/LB)
