Evaluation Report on Three New Instruction Programs: Help One Student to Succeed, Prescription Learning, and Computer Assisted Instruction.
Portland Public Schools, OR.
At the request of the Curriculum Department and the Chapter I program coordinators of the Portland Public Schools, three different instructional programs were evaluated during the 1981-82 school year. (1) The Help One Student to Succeed (HOSTS) program provided a person-to-person structured tutorial program in reading using volunteer tutors. (2) Prescription Learning is a multi-media management program in which the computer is used in program management and is also one of the instructional media to teach reading and math. (3) Computer-Assisted Instruction involves the student interacting with a computer for ten-minute intervals usually following teacher-directed instruction as supplementary instruction in reading and mathematics. For each of the presented programs, effectiveness in one or more of the basic skills was measured on a student-by-student basis. Progress for each student was matched and compared with their progress during the previous school year, and with the progress of the total Chapter I student population. Summary findings from the three programs, as well as, detailed results for each program and for the Chapter I population are presented. (PN)
