Individualized Instruction: Teacher Assessment. A Research Study.
Sanders, John
In an attempt to determine the actual knowledge of, implementation of, and interest in individualized instruction, a two-year survey was recently completed, involving 284 public school classroom teachers with a degree in either elementary or secondary education from an accredited college or university. The following three survey instruments, designed as questionnaires, were administered: (1) "Unit Evaluation," INTRODUCTION TO INDIVIDUALIZED INSTRUCTION; (2) "HOW WELL IS INSTRUCTION BEING INDIVIDUALIZED"; and (3) "Interest Finder," INTRODUCTION TO INDIVIDUALIZED INSTRUCTION. Instrument 1 was used to assess teacher knowledge about individualized instruction. The questionnaire consisted of 30 vocabulary words, which the respondents were requested to define. Instrument 2 was used to assess the degree of classroom implementation of individualized instructional techniques by the teacher. Participants responded to various degrees of application of 20 descriptive classroom items including room organization, material usage, teaching strategies, and evaluation techniques. Instrument 3 was used to assess teacher interest in individualized instruction. The teachers were asked to select five topics about which they desired more information. The topics were selected from a list of classroom teaching methods. This survey revealed that classroom teachers are interested in using individualized instruction as a method of teaching and that teachers do desire leadership and direction in implementing this method.
