The Computer and Individualized Instruction.
Cooley, William W.; Glaser, Robert
Science, v166 p574-582 Oct 31 1969
A prototype computer-based management and information system (MIS) was designed to assist teachers, developers and researchers involved in the Individually Prescribed Instruction Project. Objectives of the system were to collect and process information on each student and to supply this information to the student and/or teacher in a summarized form so that it is directly applicable to human decision making. Four major functions which the MIS can provide in an individual school include: (1) collect data, (2) monitor student progress, (3) provide prescription information, and (4) diagnose student difficulty.
