PSI Two Semesters Later.
Glick, D. Marvin
Biology 101 was offered for the second time in the Personalized System of Instruction (PSI) format during the spring 1973 semester at North Country Community College. Course policy and procedure for the second semester were identical to fall 1972 except for policy changes outlined in Appendix C of that paper. Sixty students enrolled in the 1973 course, including five who withdrew from the 1972 course. An attempt is made here to identify shifts in student performance during 1973 in an effort to validate policy changes made at the close of 1972 and to identify additional changes that should be initiated. Well over 100 changes in course materials were made at the close of the 1972 semester. The 1973 students generally showed improved pacing over first semester students. The tables in this report contain: the comparison of grade-point averages (GPA) of biology 101 students; the average progress rate of 1972 and 1973 biology 101 students; average daily attendance in biology 101; relative laboratory grade earned compared with nonlaboratory grade; and eventual placement of 1972 biology 101 students. Appendices include course prerequisites, and the time extension policy. (Author/PG)
