Characteristics of Educational Program Systems.
Baker, Robert L.
Eleven common characteristics of instructional program systems have been identified: outcomes, instruction, quality verificiation, monitoring, personnel, data, interfaces, procurement, information, continuity, and costs. The requirements, specifications, and procedures of these must all be made explicit for each system. Although the eleven system characteristics enumerated are easily differentiated for explanatory purposes, it is important to note that they are interdependent and that the specifications for one are considerably dependent upon the specifications for another. The same is true of the systems themselves; there, too, interdependency between and among the systems requires careful analytic attention and subsequent procedural attention. (Author/RB)
