Application of the Individually Prescribed Instructional System to Adult Basic Educational Programs in Nevada: June 1, 1969 - June 30, 1970. Final Project Report.
Nevada State Dept. of Education, Carson City.
The intent of the Nevada project was to assess, redevelop, and rewrite basic elementary reading and mathematics curriculum materials. The reading and mathematics curriculum project was to be prepared for use with adults in basic education programs functioning under the Individually Prescribed Instructional (IPI) system. Over 8,000 skill page products were developed and organized into sets or units that focus on a stated skill objective. The skill page set is organized to provide resources, develop understanding, and provide practice or application. A typical set includes review pages, student activity and practice pages, teacher pages, a summary practice page, skill tests, and supplementary resources. Active learner participation and the implementation of individualized instruction were viewed as favorable outcomes of the revision, but recommendations were made for further changes prior to field testing the materials. Skill page samples typical of the mathematics and reading materials developed in the project are displayed in the appendix. (MW)
