Outcome-Based Instructional Systems: Primer and Practice. Education Brief.
Murphy, Carol, Ed.
The Outcome-Based Instructional Systems approach is a comprehensive design for teaching and learning and instructional management that has its roots in the mastery learning and competency-based education movements of the early 1970s and has been implemented in hundreds of schools and districts across the country. The first part of this brief explores the roots of the outcome-based strategy and describes how such a system operates. The second part of the brief features profiles of three outcome-based instructional programs: Center School, New Canaan, Connecticut; Johnson City Central School District, New York; and Red Bank Borough School District, New Jersey. These descriptions not only illustrate the variety of potential applications of outcome-based instruction but also suggest some of the implications of adopting this educational delivery strategy.
