Teacher's Handbook for CAI Courses.
Suppes, Patrick; And Others
The handbooks for the most widely used computer-assisted instruction (CAI) courses now available on computer terminals at the Institute for Mathematical Studies in the Social Sciences at Stanford University are presented. Handbooks are included for the following courses: Strands Drill-and-practice (arithmetic fundamentals for fourth grade), Logic and Algebra (for secondary or gifted elementary students), BASIC programing (for high school students), AID programing (for junior college students with a year of algebra), and CAI Basic English (for twelfth grade or beginning community-college students). The purposes and procedures for each course are described, along with examples or summaries of programs used. A proctor's handbook, which provides step-by-step instructions on the use of student programs and teacher's reports, along with information on guest demonstrations is included. A maintenance handbook describes the various elements in the communications network and some simple repairs that a teacher or proctor may do. A bibliography of the Institute's research publications is given. (JK)
