Approaches to Individualization: Toward a Typology of Innovative Educational Practices.
Coles, Gary J.
A novel approach to the collection and utilization of program treatment information that quantifies innovative educational practices is described. Data was collected from groups of students within grade and within subject matter area who were exposed to the same program characteristics. These flexibly defined "educational experience groups" were then clustered according to the particular approach to individualization implemented in each group. Methodological issues, substantive results, and implications of this typology for the analysis of a longitudinal data base are discussed. The data base for this study included 27,000 students, 1,000 teachers, and 90 schools. (Author/EA)
