The "Trouble Shooting" Checklist: A Guide for the Educational Change Agent.
Manning, Brad A.
The Trouble-Shooting Checklist (TSC) is an empirically-developed, descriptive instrument which is based on the responses of six educational change agents. It enables an agent to predict a given institution's success in adopting innovations by ordering its levels of concerns and innovation usage. It focuses on two types of innovation: module-adoption and psychological assessment battery combined with a personal counseling orientation. The TSC presents a set of eight information areas within these two courses of events and identifies for each the ideal situation for successful adoption and installation of R&D products, the marginally acceptable and the unacceptable situation.
