Trouble Shooting Checklist-B.
Manning, Brad A.
The Trouble Shooting Checklist-B (TSC-B) is a predictive instrument to aid the educational change agent in defining variables within institutions or organizations which are concerned with adopting a psychological assessment battery with some form of personal counseling orientation in deciding whether or not an institution is suited for a particular innovation. These five dimensions comprise the major scales: Organization Structure, Personality and Leadership Styles, Nature and Type of Communication Used, Levels of Usage of Modules and Other Instruments, and Description of Prospective Teachers. The TSC-B, in addition to what is included in the TSC-A, which focuses on institutions concerned with adopting modules, contains information concerning the counselor. An answer sheet, an answer key, and instructions for scoring are included. (RC)
