The Keller Plan: A Method for Putting the Responsibility of Learning Upon the Student.
The Keller Plan is a method of structuring a course so as to achieve high efficiency in terms of student learning. This method of teaching is sometimes referred to as Personalized System of Instruction (PSI). The materials of a course of study are divided into several sequential units. Study guides are provided that include an introduction to each unit, a statement of specific objectives to be obtained, a suggestion for optional study procedures, and a listing of potential study questions. The student proceeds at his own pace. Periodic testing indicates progress and mastery of the unit material, and results of tests determine when a student is ready to advance to another unit. A proctoring system is used during quizzes to supervise and help the students. Emphasis is placed upon completely mastering each unit before proceeding further in the course. (JD)
