Summary

This is a report on the third phase of Project IN-STEP, which was intended to develop a viable model for individualized, multi-media in-service teacher education programs. (Phase I and II are reported in ED 033 905, and ED 042 709). The rationale for Phase III was to see if the model could be successfully transferred to an area other than teaching teachers to teach elementary science, and so permit acceptance of the hypothesis that the IN-STEP approach was successful. A vehicle for field testing the model was developed during Phase III, through a course in Management of Instructional Systems, and the model was then implemented to teach this course. Approximately 85 teachers in Palm Beach County took part in this field test. Instruction was individulized to a much greater extent by pre-assessing participants. Results showed that approximately 93 percent of the participants in Phase III developed an instructional system of their own, 100 percent completed at least one of the modules with a mastery of its content, and approximately 98 percent indicated that they had changed their behavior in the classroom and that they would implement skills, materials, and new techniques which they had acquired. The course is regarded as a vital step in teaching teachers to humanize their curricula offerings while still maintaining some structure within their program. (MBM)
