Abstract : Discusses a current research project aimed toward the realization of two educational ideals: 1. the individualization of instruction, and 2. The understanding of students as individuals. Describes the Continuous Progress Plan (CPP) to be used at the Bassett High School District in Eastern Los Angeles County. Using these studies as a springboard for projecting ahead, suggests several hypotheses about the use of information processing in education. (Author)
