IGE/MUS-S: An Instructional Management System for Secondary Schools. A Report.
Koritzinsky, Katherine M.; White, Steven J.
Individually Guided Education/Multiunit Schools-Secondary (IGE/MUS-S) is a research and development project currently in operation at the University of Wisconsin. As often happens in education, the operational need for the project was so great that it came into existence before it was formally justified in theory. This paper attempts to discuss the three major areas dealing with the IGE/MUS-S project. It provides the missing theoretical base by explaining in comprehensive form the significance and purpose of the project. IGE/MUS-S is described in terms of its operation as a project in the Wisconsin Research and Development Center; its commitment to an IGE system that provides continuous progress towards mutually established goals; its primary analytical tool--a 3-part division of the functions of education; its role in the ongoing process of change and innovation in education; problems that plague the educational process; and a set of 50 working statements on learning psychology. The paper also presents a general model for an alternative educational program, reviews current developments in the seven component areas that provide the focal points for the project, and discusses strategies and plans for implementation and future development.
