Assessing School Readiness as a Precondition for Effective Instructional Improvement Planning.
Haugerud, Albert R.; And Others
Ways of determining when a school is ready to plan and implement major instructional improvements are presented. Three primary areas are suggested for in-depth exploration and consideration, and to facilitate the process the following problem-solving tools are outlined: (1) guidelines for assessing readiness for using a group problem-solving approach to instructional planning; (2) levels of assistance or support services that may help a group become ready through developing a greater capacity for instructional planning; and (3) suggestions for forecasting or predicting the ability to carry out decisions regarding instructional improvements as validation of readiness. It is emphasized that a pre-planning phase is necessary to insure successful instructional planning activities. (JD)
