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.
