Cost-Effective Computer Management of Instruction.
Oosterhof, Albert C.
The computer management system described, which administers tests and provides feedback to examinees, as well as progress summaries to instructional personnel, has been implemented at Florida State University. Located in the Assessment Resource Center (ARC), it has been used to manage the instruction of several thousand students enrolled in courses offered by 15 academic departments. Because of its relatively low cost, this system can be implemented on a large scale by many educational institutions; however, if such systems are to be effective, they must be designed into compatible and valid measurement and instructional systems. This paper describes the system, discusses relative costs for hardware and personnel and addresses some of the measurement and instructional implications of using the system. (CMV)
