"Several years ago, University of Minnesota alumni in teaching positions were asked by Professor W. E. Peik for an evaluation of certain of the professional courses in which they had been enrolled as students. They placed educational psychology first for helpfulness in educational thinking. The text in hand is an outgrowth of this course and follows closely its major objectives: 1. To provide a knowledge of techniques that may be used in acquiring a greater understanding of an individual pupil or of a group of pupils. 2. To provide a summary of the knowledge about pupils in and out of school that has accumulated from the application of the research techniques to educational and psychological problems. 3. To develop in teachers an attitude whereby each pupil and each learning situation is regarded as unique. To achieve these ends, the discussion throughout the book is organized about three general problems: (1) the measurement of abilities, achievements, and other aspects of personality; (2) individual differences and differentiated instruction; and (3) learning. Not all the subtopics relevant to these three problems have been covered thoroughly, to be sure. The portions omitted or treated briefly were dealt with in this manner either (1) because they were regarded as unimportant from the practical point of view, or (2) because relatively little is known about them. For example, the writers are fully aware that the treatment given to the topic of emotions is inadequate. But, in terms of what is known about the emotions, it would be difficult to extend the treatment without running into sheer speculation, which, if applied in the classroom, may be distinctly harmful. In contrast with several educational psychologies that have appeared within the past year or two, this book leans throughout upon research findings. A factual basis is provided for child-centered as well as social thinking about educational problems. While speculation is not ruled out, the writers are convinced that educational problems can be solved more effectively if the solutions proffered have factual support. Students, then, must be fortified in their thinking by a knowledge of the available facts. Some material entirely new to books on educational psychology has been included. Because of the evidence that has gradually accumulated concerning the problem of esthetics in education, a chapter summarizing the progress to date is introduced. There are chapters on the subnormal, the maladjusted, and the intellectually gifted. The chapters on measurement emphasize tests of the specific outcomes of education. In the section on learning, the basic principles evolved from experimental results are discussed. The so-called 'laws of learning' are regarded as having been prematurely and unwarrantably fixed. Each learning situation is considered as unique, with numerous conditions operating in relation to one another to make the situation effective or to interfere with optimal learning. Thus, the attitude of relativity rather than constancy in learning is stressed"--Preface. (PsycINFO Database Record (c) 2015 APA, all rights reserved)

To determine statewide educational needs in relation to existing practices, data are derived from over 500 interviews and conferences, as well as documents and other materials. Recommendations include--(1) expansion of the state administrative role to remedy local inequities, (2) revision of state laws to regularize educational appointment and tenure practices, (3) initiation of planning, research, and evaluation of the educational system and development of a master plan, (4) establishment of a statewide achievement testing program to be used as a basis for providing special assistance as needed by individual schools, (5) revision of accreditation procedures, (6) a feasibility study to determine appropriate application of data processing techniques to state board operations, (7) reorganization of school districts, (8) nonpartisan election of local board members, and (9) revision of local and state tax and funding regulations. Administration of the junior college system should be regularized and a specific master plan developed to assure inclusion of vocational and continuing educational opportunities as well as transfer curriculums. Accreditation, curriculums, and faculty appointment questions should be coordinated on a statewide level rather than through the university of missouri as at present.

Long-range planning and budgeting at colleges and universities by Alvin C Eurich( Book )

2 editions published between 1972 and 1973 in English and held by 18 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The need for planning in higher education is more urgent today than ever before. This paper argues that planning is the only method by which colleges and universities can reasonably expect to come to terms with the financial, social, and political crises of our times. Pioneering efforts over the past generation to develop the budget as a principal planning tool must be fused with a comprehensive method for overall planning. This paper further describes the characteristics of an adequate plan and the essential steps in carrying it out. Finally it is suggested that the failure of college and university administrators to plan will only mean that someone else will do the planning for them. This could mean reliance on federal support, a dependency that could well have consequences that no one in higher education would welcome. (Author)
