A-T and the Minicourse Concept.
Hurst, R. N.; And Others
Two introductory biology courses which are given as service courses for agriculture students have been broken down into small conceptual units (mini-courses). Students cannot fail the course and are awarded a C grade when they have reached a predetermined level of mastery in each level for any unit, they may revise the unit and retake the test. If students do not complete the requirements, they are not given a grade or recorded as a fail. To obtain grades of A or B students elect to do extra reading and take a test measuring higher cognitive levels than knowledge. The mini-courses are taught using an audio-tutorial technique. (AL)
