Mathematical Equations for Curriculum Decision-Making: An Application of Regression Analysis.
Denton, Jon J.
This document reports on a study of the feasibility of a procedure for evaluating an instructional program. The instructional units evaluated were professional education courses which were structured around performance objectives and utilized a model similar to the Personalized System of Instruction (PSI). Data were collected in four phases; instruments used included the California Psychological Inventory, the Tennessee Self-Concept Scale, mastery tests related to the objectives, formal evaluations of student teaching performance, and participant evaluations of the experience. Two hundred eighty-one variables resulted for each teacher in the sample of 25. Relationships among variables were determined by logical and correlational analyses. Data were submitted to four types of regression analyses; the analyses were interpreted, indicating that the goals of the project were met and a decision equation was derived. (SD)
