It is a difficult task to arrange a learning environment permitting each student to pursue, at all times, the types of activities that most appropriately meet his needs. The concept of individualized performance-based instruction is an attempt to realistically approach this task by diagnosing students' needs and interests related to desired behavior, prescribing learning activities designed to eliminate the identified needs, encouraging students to proceed at their own rate and to evaluate their own progress, and assessing student achievement in relation to the desired behaviors. This booklet describes an approach to individualized instruction and to the development of instructional packets that can assist educators in the implementation of an individualized instruction program. These procedures are discussed as components of a learning packet that includes diagnostic assessment instrumentation, performance objectives, learning activities, self-evaluation instrumentation, and mastery assessment instrumentation. Two sample learning packets are included. (Author/IRT)
