[quote:Anonymous Coward 17927000:MV85NjMyNjNfMzQwOTI0NTdfRTg3MThBNzg=] Ok - here is the information I'm piecing together. Granted, this doesn't explain anything specific on what was done or how the program was put together, but it does lay out what these people were thinking/what their philosophies were. I'll reference 'sage docs' and you can do a look-up there to find the articles or I'll post a direct link, when possible.

System Development Corporation is in the sage docs: System Development Corporation Gowan/Bushnell - Educational and Psychological Measurement-1965-Coleman-943-4 (1).pdf (Harold Borko of SDC did a book review for Gifted Child Quarterly, GCQ) Links Harold Borko and Don Bushnell: http://oai.dtic.mil/oai/oai?verb=getRecord&metadataPrefix=html&identifier=AD0285535 System Development Corporation Wiki: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/System_Development_Corporation (Look up significant contributions) Article on Outcome Based Systems - referencing D.
