An Evaluation of Project PLAN.
Project Plan, a computer managed individualized learning system developed by the Westinghouse Learning Corporation, was introduced into the St. Louis Public Schools under a Title III grant of the Elementary and Secondary Education Act. The program, offering individualized education in reading, language arts, mathematics, science, and social studies was operated in four elementary schools with approximately 1,000 students. The evaluation focused on four main areas: the project's success as an operational individualized learning system, the project's feasibility for implementation in St. Louis Public Schools, the success of PLAN students compared to comparison groups, and the success of PLAN students based on their academic objectives in PLAN. The evaluation instruments fell into four categories: cognitive achievement measures, affective achievement measures, process implementation measures, and opinion surveys. The results of the evaluation are given in great detail and are documented by extensive appendixes. (WH)
