The major findings include the identification of two ways for using system analysis in education, the specification of procedures for conducting analyses of instructional systems, and implications for school organization. Although there is a definite trend in secondary education to search out and introduce ways to alter school organizations so that the individual differences among students can be accommodated, no school has yet evolved an organization to successfully meet this objective. Schools striving in this direction are presently blocked because they lack two major resources 1 adequate self-study instructional materials, and 2 adequate systems to provide information to instructors, counselors, and administrators about the status of students as individuals. Recommendations for attacking these problems growing out of the study include 1 continued development of the computer -based system to assist students and counselors in academic planning that was started in the project 2 continued study of the use of information processing in the classroom to design systems that will collect, store, and display student information so that it can be used in the immediate instructional process 3 in-service training of influential school personnel in the skills of designing individualized course materials and 4 development and dissemination of procedures for the management of changes in schools.
