Demonstration of the Use of Computer-Assisted Instruction with Handicapped Children. Final Report.
Chiang, Alice; And Others
The report describes ASSIST, a teacher-controlled computer assisted instruction (CAI) system in special education. Field tested with aporoximately 200 handicapped elementary and junior high students (educable mentally retarded, educationally handicapped, learning disabled, and oral language handicapped). Results are said to demonstrate that such a system can operate reliably and successfully in special education classrooms, as evidenced by ease of incorporating CAI with classroom activities, large number of lessons created by the teachers, extensive student use of the system, and positive responses from teachers and students regarding the system. Recommendations are made for continued development of ASSIST. Two appendixes contain sample ASSIST author sheets and evaluation questionnaires. (CL)
