The Individualized System: Findings from Five Studies. H.S.1 Studies.
Fleming, W. G.
With Circular H.S.1 1972/73, the Ministry of Education directed Ontario's secondary schools to provide an increased range of course offerings and to allow students as much freedom as possible to choose their own courses. To identify the effects of the individualized "credit system" established by this controversial circular, a number of studies were conducted during the 1972-73 school year. This report presents an overview of the findings from the entire group of H.S.1 studies and at the same time relates those findings from two or more studies that tend to throw light on the same question. In addition to summarizing the most important findings of each study, the author discusses the provisions of H.S.1, the research techniques and objectives of the various studies, and the overall reaction of educators and the general public to the new system.
