This program is a model of individualization in which participants select components based on individual needs. Each component includes a performance criterion test, a statement of learning objectives, various learning options, and a variety of carefully selected resource materials. The major objective of the program is to demonstrate a teacher and administrator inservice program in California that will provide teacher capability to function effectively in systems of individualized instruction. The following activities were designed to achieve this objective: (a) disseminating information at the awareness level; (b) providing regional sites for demonstration/visitation; (c) identifying districts for inservice training; (d) generating, selecting, implementing, and monitoring inservice programs; (e) providing technical assistance to adopting/adapting districts; and (f) evaluating the diffusion process and the inservice program outcomes. Evaluation focused on the following factors: (a) the increase knowledge about systems of individualized instruction; (b) the development of a positive teacher attitude toward implementation of individualized instruction; (c) the degree to which that attitude was retained after a post-workshop period of 60 days; and (d) the level of satisfaction with the workshop as reported by the participants at its conclusion. Appendixes include a discussion of results, a sample schedule, and tests and forms used. (Author/PD)
