Computer Aided Reading Diagnosis.
McEneaney, John E.
Computer technologies are having an ever-increasing influence on educational research and practice in Russia and the United States. In Russia, a number of recent papers have focused on the application of the computer as a teaching tool and on its influence in instructional organization and planning. In the United States, there is a great deal of interest in the application of computers in the diagnosis and remediation of learning difficulties. American reading educators have been particularly interested in the application of expert systems (based on techniques from artificial intelligence) in reading diagnosis and instruction. The purpose of this paper is to describe the development and application of a new expert system designed to assist reading teachers in the diagnosis and remediation of reading difficulties. The paper also suggests similarities and differences between English-language and Russian-language reading diagnosis that may have implications for the development and use of computer-based diagnostic systems in Russian schools. (A diagram representing information provided by a computer-based diagnostic system on a computer screen, and a table are included.) (Author/RS)
