Basic Skills Mathematics Curriculum Development for CBE.
Heimer, Ralph T.; Rizza, Peter J., Jr.
This paper describes the Basic Skills Learning System, a comprehensive curriculum development effort designed to deliver a variety of materials via the PLATO System in the three content areas of reading, language, and mathematics. Design criteria required that the system be individualized, adaptive, and responsive as well as modularized and structured hierarchically, and use performance objectives, the mastery learning paradigm, diagnostic and prescriptive strategies, and a multi-sensory learning format. Discussion focuses primarily on the Basic Mathematics curriculum as an example of the type of instructional material and strategy used throughout the Learning System. (VT)
