58 p. 

The use of the systems approach in educational inquiry is not new, and the models of input/output, input/process/product, and cybernetic systems have been widely used. The general systems model is an extension of all these, adding the dimension of environmental influence on the system as well as system influence on the environment. However, if the theory model is changed, traditional statistical procedures may no longer be applicable and other mehtods should be used. The Set, Information, Graph, and General System Model (SIGGS) is a further extension of general systems in that set theory, information theory, and digraph theory are used as models to extend general systems theory. This paper further discusses the application of the SIGGS model and information statistics to the Indiana Behavior Management Systems (IBMS), an observation system concerned with teacher management of off task, deviant learner behavior, which was used in an evaluation of Programmed Reentry (of mildly handicapped children) Into Mainstream Education (Project PRIME).
