This instructional systems planning guide presents specific criteria for developing a complete instructional program, as well as a method for designing the program. Chapter 1 presents an overview of curriculum development. Chapter 2 provides a brief description of each major activity in the process of curriculum development, which includes conducting a feasibility study and a task analysis; developing measurable objectives, criteria instruments and learner activity materials; validating individual modules, implementing and testing the system; and conducting a followup on completers. Each major activity is presented in the following format: purpose, activities, product, and discussion. Chapter 3 presents the operational process of developing curriculum. A flowchart is first presented, followed by a series of activities listed for the accomplishment of each step in the process. A cover sheet for personnel assignment and delineation of job parameters is also provided. In chapter 4 a suggested format for the final curriculum product is outlined in ten sections. A glossary of concepts and terms associated with an instructional systems development approach concludes the guide. (BL)
