Improving Instruction in Innovative Areas Through Improved Administrative Procedures. Final Report.
Kreitz, John W.
A strategy was developed to improve the administration of an Open Entry/Open Exit and Self-Paced Individualized Instruction (OE/OE and SPII) program in community colleges in Oregon. The variables affecting an innovative program are identified and discussed based on the author's practical experience, and a series of alternative ideas for decision making are presented. The research provides theory for the establishment of an OE/OE and SPII program, points out areas that need resolution prior to establishing a program, points up problems to be expected, and provides ideas for implementation of an OE/OE and SPII program. The following areas are discussed in detail, with related supplementary materials provided: administrator and instructor role, utilization of learning packages, facilities, scheduling, registration, motivational problems, recordkeeping, program evaluation, feedback, and decision making. A third party evaluation is appended to the report. (NJ)
