97 p. 

Variable Modular Scheduling Via Computer, a scheduling program which focuses on allocating a school's resources according to the school's overall purposes, is designed to allow schools to adapt organizational patterns to whatever teaching and learning patterns they define as necessary in meeting their educational goals. The system's rationale, materials, and procedures for use are described in the first section of this report. The origins of the project are considered and information is provided about key personnel, sources of ideas for the product, evolution of ideas for the product, and funding for product development. A section on product development details the history of the management and organization of the project, the original development plan, actual procedures for development, and a formative evaluation. Diffusion strategies and efforts are discussed, and product characteristics affecting diffusion are described. Information about the extent of product use, installation procedures, and successful implementations is included. Speculations about the future of the product and a list of crucial decisions made in the 11-year history of its development conclude the report. Appended are descriptions of some successful implementations of the product. (SH)
