A Computer System for a Faculty of Education.
Hallworth, Herbert J.
A computer system, introduced for use in statistics courses within a college of education, features the performance of a variety of functions, a relatively economic operation, and the facilitation of placing remote terminals in schools. The system provides an interactive statistics laboratory in which the student learns to write programs for the computer in a short course, and uses the computer as a supportive tool to perform lower level cognitive operations. Plans are being made to expand this system to handle computer-assisted learning and information retrieval functions. (SP)
