Developing Exportable Curriculum Supervision for Criterion-Referenced Instructional Programs. Technical Report 49.
Niedermeyer, Fred C.; Fischer, Kathleen B.
An exportable curriculum supervision system was developed to help supervisors and teachers accomplish three primary functions: to establish class performance expectations, both in terms of pupil achievement and rate of program completion; to monitor actual class performance on a regular, efficient, and systematic basis; and to use suggested strategies to modify instruction and correct observed performance deficiencies. Several versions of the system, termed the Instructional Improvement Kit, were empirically tested to observe the differential effects of program monitoring versus program monitoring plus instructional modification, as well as follow-up teacher meetings. Superior achievement is obtained when a program monitoring system is supplemented by instructional modification strategies that assist supervisors and teachers in analyzing instruction and making changes that have been demonstrated to be generally effective in improving pupil performance.
