Project CALCOP. Final Report.
Brightman, Richard W.
This is the final report of project CALCOP, a joint project of the Coast Community College District, the Los Angeles Police Department, and the Los Angeles Police Academy to develop, implement, and evaluate computer-assisted instruction (CAI) in the rules of evidence and seach-and-seizure procedures of police training. The CALCOP learning system is a combination of independent study and CAI exercises. The project compared one group of cadets using the CALCOP learning system and another group with similar characteristics using conventional classroom instruction. CALCOP provided simulated case problems for cadets that reinforced learning, broadened perspectives, and provided a mock field experience. The conclusion, based on examination results, shows that a learning system that removes the cadet from the rigid discipline of the conventional academy classroom is more effective as a teaching technique than the traditional classroom.
