Grant Computer Managed Individualized Learning Project (PLAN*). The interim Evaluation Report (July 1, 1972-June 30, 1973).
Saint Louis Board of Education, MO.
Four instructional management programs, the Duluth Project, IGE Project, the IPI Project, and PLAN Project, were evaluated, contrasted, and compared with development of an inhouse program for the St. Louis public schools. The main criteria were: developmental and operational costs; degree of individualization; the use of behavioral objectives, criterion tests, and computer management; coverage of elementary grades; comprehensiveness of subject areas covered; and the need for differential staffing. Only the PLAN Project (Westinghouse Learning Corporation) met all the specifications, including the requirement for computer support, and was chosen as the best program available and preferable to inhouse development. Activities provided schools the opportunity to self-select into the PLAN Project. With the implementation of the program, the various segments were continually reassessed and reevaluated; the overall objective was 80 percent of the students meeting 80 percent of the objectives. Dissemination activities of the program are outlined in this interim report which precedes a final evaluation report published later. (WH)
