Goal Selection and Program Monitoring Using Batch and Microcomputer Procedures: A Summary of the Presentation.
Brown, David A.
The paper reviews the use of the microcomputer in special education program monitoring and contrasts its use with batch mainframe time-sharing computer systems. The mainframe system used by Custer State Hospital, the site of a residential training program for severely and profoundly handicapped persons, is described. The hospital's batch system is considered in terms of development, implementation, and staff training. Seven guidelines for the development of curriculum implementation plans are appended, and sample implementation plans with long and short range objectives specified, are provided. Additional information focuses on recordkeeping procedures and interpretive guidelines for computerized monthly progress reports. (CL)
