Individualized Instructional Analysis System.
Purdue Univ., Lafayette, IN.
Instructors in the Department of Education at Purdue University have developed a combination of educational innovations called "Individualized Instructional Analysis System (IIAS)." The system is a combination of microteaching, interactional analysis, and audio-tutorial techniques. The microteaching aspect employs a teacher who teaches a very brief lesson which is videotaped. He then observes and participates in a critique of the taped sample of his teaching, revises his teaching, and then performs the whole sequence again. Interactional analysis involves the identification of certain verbal behaviors in a classroom and the evaluation of them. Thus, it is possible to ascertain how much the students talk relative to how much a teacher talks; how many questions are being asked; whether the questions really extend a student's thinking, or whether they cut it short. Audio-tutoring is an individualized process which makes use of a variety of programmed audiovisual materials in such a way that students learn according to their own rates. With the audio-tutorial system, the student and the teaching device are paired off. The one-to-one ratio provides each student with a tutor of unlimited patience. (Included in this document are a summary of the program, a case study, and material from student evaluations.) (Author/JA)
