A Description of the Implementation of Individually Guided Education in Thirty Wisconsin School Districts.
Ashmore, Will
This study attempts to examine and document the implementation pattern of Individually Guided Education (IGE) across 30 Wisconsin school districts operating IGE programs in their schools. Using these results, the data were then analyzed to determine which of the seven IGE components examined, contributed most to a favorable overall or Total IGE Implementation Score. The seven components are: organizational arrangement, instructional programming, materials, measurement and evaluation, home school relations, facilitative environments, and research and development. The results indicated that the pattern of IGE implementation across the districts participating in the study is generally adequate or approximately 50 percent along the way to an ideal implementation of the IGE system. Only two of the IGE Components, Home School Relations (35 percent implementation) and Research and Development (33 percent implementation) were areas where improvement and modification can be justified now. The remaining analyses, which consisted of correlational techniques, suggested that districts having a generally favorable Total IGE Implementation Score received favorable ratings on the implementation of the MUS-E Organization, Instructional Programming, and the Measurement and Evaluation Components. At this point in time it appears that Home School Relations, Materials, and Research and Development Components are less a part of the implementation scene of IGE. (Author/DEP)
