Analyzing Problems: Training Unit 2.
Gall, Joyce P.; And Others
Numerous problems face the nation's schools. These problems differ widely in their content, in their scope, in the types of people to whom they are important, and in the intensity with which people complain about them. Many schools try to pinpoint the causes of these problems and to look for solutions before the problems themselves are well understood. How can instructional planners rationally determine which of the many problems they face deserve their attention? This training unit presents a systematic approach to the process of analyzing instructional problems. It will take you through a series of steps or decision points by which you can analyze problems. Each step is the subject of one of the six modules in the training unit: Which problem signals warrant further analysis? What problems do the signals imply? What additional information is needed? How should the information be collected? Are the problems valid? If they are valid, how serious are the problems? (Author)
