Kratochvil, Daniel W.
This report summarizes the development of a commercially available program in computational skills which makes extensive use of computer capabilities. The first section describes the organization, content, and cost of the materials, and the procedures for using them. The key personnel, and the organizational and funding sources are then named. Three phases in the development process are next identified: (1) informal tryouts, (2) program development using the APL/360 programming language, and (3) conversion to Coursewriter III language. Formative evaluation during the second phase and summative evaluation after the third phase are described in some detail. Final sections of the report outline the marketing procedures for the product, its degree of adoption, possible future developments, and four crucial decisions in its developmental history. (MM)
