Project CREATES. First Annual Report 1968-69.
Stolurow, Lawrence M.; Klare, George R.
Project CREATES stands for Combined Resources for Editing Automated Teaching to Enlighten Students, the Harvard University Computer-Aided Instruction Laboratory's part of "A Multi-Agency Developmental Adult Basic Education Program." The major emphases of Project CREATES have been in the area of program and procedure development for computer-aided revision of instructional materials and the area of computer instruction of reading and language skills. Work has also been done on analytic-generative computer programs to aid editors and writers in text revision, and on the development of new programs for Adult Basic Education. The Computer Aided Instruction training reported was carried out in the Learning Center established in the Roxbury section of Boston. The first training session was still in process when the report was written, and definite test results were unobtainable. However, the work done by Project CREATES personnel from the inception of the program to the time of writing are covered in detail under the categories: Personnel, Publications, Meetings, and Research and Development. An appendix containing most of the publications, technical reports and notes mentioned in the report is obtainable from Syracuse University. A glossary of acronyms, Personnel list, and a schematic diagram of the program are included. (SH)
