Klopp, Pamela M.; And Others
This paper is one of a group that describes the research methodology for an evaluation of individually guided education (IGE) in American elementary schools. The paper covers the first phase activities from solicitation of participants (April 1977) through preparation of final data tapes for the structural equations analysis (September 1978). Topics include procedures for solicitation of participants, within-school arrangements for participation, materials and packaging, data collection procedures, and comments from participating schools. A lengthy appendix contains samples of correspondence with participants, evaluation materials, and specification of data problems. (Author/JM)
