Programed instruction for superior students in small high schools by John D McLain( Book )

2 editions published in 1967 in English and held by 18 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Superior students in rural high schools were given programed instruction in selected subject areas to determine if a nondirective method of diffusing an innovation, like programed instruction, was appropriate for dissemination in a rural environment. The effects of the cooperative demonstration project on students, parents, teachers, and high school administrators were measured by the attitude toward programed instruction inventory and the semantic differential scale. Results showed that predisposition of the individual to either adoption or rejection will affect the rate and final decision regarding the acceptance or rejection of the innovation. The investigator recommended that premeasures should be employed to determine the predisposition of the target population and concluded that the nondirective method of diffusing an innovation was appropriate for the dissemination of programed instruction in a rural environment. The use of newsletters proved to be an important contribution to the success of the project, and where dissemination is an objective, the investigator recommended the use of similar means of communication with the target audience.

The introduction to this anthology reports a study designed to develop a systematic procedure for gathering information from actual school settings about the impact of school organization, staffing, and administration on students--information to provide baseline data for decisionmakers. Included are description of methods and procedures, data analysis techniques, and specific objectives which included (1) selection, modification, and design of instruments for gathering data regarding students, teachers, parents, principals, and teacher aides, percepts of selected issues in the elementary school and instruments for making objective observations of classroom environment, and (2) gathering baseline information on one public and one nonpublic (one centralized and one decentralized) elementary school in urban, deprived environments. The eight chapters, each written by a specialist in the area of concern, present different aspects of the study: The Place of Objective Information in Total School Planning; Critical Information Requirements in the Management of the Elementary School; Analysis and Implications of Student, Teacher, and Parent Percepts of Student Performance; Professional Staff Encounters; Classroom Ecology; General Atmosphere for Administrative Autonomy: The Atmosphere for Decision Making; Three Views of the Teacher Aide; and Community Interest in Local School Management.
