Project Flagship, the 1974 Distinguished Achievement Awards entry from State University College at Buffalo, New York, is a competency-based teacher education model using laboratory instruction. The special features of this model include a) stated objectives and criteria for evaluation, b) individualized instruction, c) individualized learning rates, d) laboratory instruction, and e) remediation. The following delivery systems are used to establish these features; a) a sequence of 10-minute video tapes; b) a 20-minute, narrated, 2x2 slide series; c) a self-instructional manual; d) scheduled live demonstrations; and e) scheduled lectures. Students have the option of using one or any combination of delivery systems. Evaluation of the project is achieved through pre- and post-assessment scores from two groups of students. The experimental group experiences Project Flagship while the control group has assigned courses and textbooks. Results reveal higher overall scores for the experimental group on preassessment tests. On postassessment tests, data show higher scores on psychomotor competencies for the experimental group. (The report presents graphs and modules.) (BRB)
