Project for Program Improvement through the Utilization of Self-Paced Individualized Instruction Concepts Industrial Equipment Technology. Final Report.
Crowley's Ridge Vocational Technical School, Forrest City, AR.
The general objectives of an Arkansas technical school's self-paced individualized instruction program were designing, field testing, and disseminating an instructional management system with support materials that identify and justify the need for a program of instruction. Eight specific objectives have been developed to facilitate students' learning patterns: (1) students are enrolled at regular intervals; (2) a variety of teaching methods and instructional materials encourage self-paced learning; (3) task analysis exercises are based upon performance criteria; (4) performance guides contain knowledge that is prerequisite to skill performance; (5) the instructional materials, equipment, knowledge, skills, and attitudes necessary for task completion and mastery are identified; (6) management system tracks all students through the program; and (7) evaluation ensures occupational competence for terminating students. (The document contains a project description, student evaluation instrument, competency record, course syllabus, and course outline. A Learning Activities Packet (LAP) overview for electricity concepts I and II and a LAP for electricity concept--Ohms Law--are included. The LAP includes performance objectives, tasks, learning steps, unit and specific objectives, an information sheet, assignment sheets and answers, and a job sheet.) (NLA)
