If the gap between technological enterprise and the development of humane individuals is to be overcome, then programs adjusted to the unique characteristics of individual readers need to be promoted. As Earl Kelley has averred, the primary goal of education must be the production of increasing uniqueness. Idiosyncratic learning patterns are revealed through diagnostic teaching and the self-analysis on the part of the student. Correlative adjustment of instruction according to student needs may ensue as a cooperative enterprise of student and teacher. Both parties to this contractual process are learning about themselves and about techniques that succeed or fail.
