IGE Evaluation: Perspectives and a Plan. Working Paper No. 183. Report.
Romberg, Thomas A.
This paper outlines a plan to assess the effectiveness of individually guided education (IGE) in American elementary schools. The evaluation plan is based on a framework that identifies variables and relationships among variables in four categories: IGE support system components, pupil and staff background, means of instruction, and pupil and staff outcomes. The proposed investigation is divided into four phases. The first phase is a 100-school survey, the second is a follow-up and extension study, the third is an intensive study of the degree of reform and renewal in IGE schools, and the last phase is an examination of the use and effectiveness of two curriculum products of the Wisconsin Research and Development Center for Cognitive Learning. Together the four phases of the investigation are intended to identify the characteristics of successful schooling as designed for and practiced in IGE elementary schools. (Author/JM)
