Longitudinal Study in Curriculum Engineering.
Beauchamp, George A.
Reports on a third account of a longitudinal investigation of the effects of the installation of a curriculum engineering system in a suburban Illinois elementary school district. A system of curriculum engineering is explained as involving the organization of all personnel in the school district in the performance of the two primary functions of curriculum planning and curriculum implementation. Independent variables for data analysis consisted of the organized procedures for curriculum planning and implementation functions, the specific actions taken by teacher personnel in execution of the procedures, and leadership actions. The specific objectives of the investigation were to observe the effects of treatments on (1) general teacher attitudes, (2) attitudes of teachers toward participation in a curriculum system, and (3) actual behaviors of teachers as participants in curriculum functions. Analysis of three years' data is discussed in light of the longitudinal design of the study. (Author)
