PROBE: Probability Research for Outcome Based Evaluation
Phase One: Theoretical Research
1) Sampling to identify reconciling and reconciliation factors;
2) Creating a “Survey Instrument” (SI) for factor
3) Surveying on-line stratified random populations with the SI;
4) Analyzing data by factors and demographics;
5) Summarizing the factor analysis in a reference manual,
“Reconciling/Reconciliation Findings” (RRF).
1) Communicate the RRF via a blog for feedback;
2) Establish a website for visibility, interaction and dialogue;
3) Publish on-line the RRF findings, conclusions and directions;
4) Coordinate among existing websites with relevant material;
5) Interact with educational ventures having similar objectives.
Applications in Technology
1) Collect/ create needed data to activate RRF within PROBE;
2) Write three interactive programs for PROBE on-line;
3) Place on-line CyberSolve (Interactive problem solving);
4) Place on-line CyberSearch (Experiential problem solutions);
5) Place on-line CyberSeek (“Artificial Intelligence” AI --
creative problem solving options.
Applications in Education
1) Develop on-line curriculum options for children and adults;
2) Seek accreditation to offer on-line college level course
3) Form a “Consortium of Institutions and Associations” devoted
to the study and application of reconciliation;
4) Provide on-line diploma/degree programs in Reconciliation
Arts, Humanities, Sciences and Technology;
5) Expand the Website into a full “Search Engine” funded through
participants, associations and advertisers.
Applications in Societal Conflict
1) Make RRF and PROBE services available to leaders in conflict
management and resolution -- public and private sectors;
2) Seek partners in Research and Development (R&D) from
education, health & community services, business, etc.
3) Provide grants (with income from the “Search Engine”) for
university research on the impact of reconciliation upon
physical, emotional and societal health;
4) Sponsor studies on how reconciliation impacts various
5) Publish conflict studies in the reconciling process using
local through international reconciliation examples.
