A progress report describes the design and demonstration of the computer-based Instructional Management Systems (IMS) for the period March 1, 1967, through February 29, 1968. The rationale and design considerations of IMS, development of its system components, functioning of the components during the first field trial, and data collected during the first field trial are discussed. In IMS, teachers administer frequent tests, which are keyed to behaviorally defined objectives and printed on machine readable forms. Data input procedures transform pupil responses for computer analysis, and the computer-generated report contains an analysis of pupils' achievement of objectives and suggests remedial exercises for those who do not meet the criterion performance level.
