The Development of An Instructional Productivity System.
Haynes, Amos A.; Haugo, John E.
School District 916 in St. Paul, Minnesota, a special district which provides vocational-technical learning experiences for high school and post-secondary students, developed an Instructional Productivity System (IPS). The IPS was designed to allow the district to monitor the success of the learner-centered instructional model whose features included flexible scheduling, performance contracting, individualized instruction, and accountability. Working in cooperation with a consulting firm, Educational Management Services, project components were developed to: 1) assess students' knowledge and skills upon entering vocational training; 2) measures students' actual learning progress against expected progress; and 3) implement a computerized system to monitor student progress and to correlate this information with program costs and effectiveness data. Reports generated by the system include monthly reports of graduates, attendance reviews, student progress reports, and program progress reports. (PB)
