Computer-Assisted Instruction in Mathematics. Disadvantaged Pupil Program Fund. Final Evaluation Report, 1982-83.
The Computer-Assisted Instruction in Mathematics project, of the Cleveland Public Schools, uses microcomputers to provide supplemental remedial instruction in mathematics to students in grades 7-12. The project also provides inservice training for classroom teachers on the use of microcomputers for math remediation and on the development of remedial math software. Twenty schools are each equipped with two microcomputers for use as classroom demonstration devices and/or individual drill and practice vehicles. In the school year 1982-83, operational problems impeded the progress of the project's four stated objectives: implementation and management of the project, assessing student achievement, providing inservice training for teachers, and developing remedial software, all of which met with varied success. Delayed starts (in some schools) and inherent design shortcomings operated to limit the delivery of service to targeted students. It is recommended that thought be given to restructuring the project.
