Simulation Models for Developing an Individualized, Performance Criterion Learning Situation. Technical Monograph No. 21.
Anderson, G. Ernest, Jr.
The mission of the simulation team of the Model Elementary Teacher Education Project, 1968-71, was to develop simulation tools and conduct appropriate studies of the anticipated operation of that project. The team focused on the experiences of individual students and on the resources necessary for these experiences to be reasonable. This report contains documentation of QUEUE, an elementary queueing model useful in exploring how many channels of a specific service facility should be available to meet a hypothesized set of student needs; ARF 1, a system used to study staffing patterns and work loads; EDSIM 1, a method of keeping track essentially of student time to completion and student time in each instructional area; EDSIM 2, the major model for the Model Elementary Teacher Education proposed program, which keeps track of individual student progress as well as resources needed under various circumstances; and EDSIM 4, a model addressing the same problems as EDSIM 2 but from a different approach.
