These proceedings of the Second Annual Three-Site National Conference on Instructional Assessment provide the agenda, an outline of a self-directed tour of the Meramec Learning Laboratories, "Individualized Instruction in Community Colleges, a Status Report" by Walter E. Hunter, and the keynote presentation, "Why Reinvent the Wheel?" by George H. Voegel. Reports from the conference group sessions concern: Business; English and Humanities; Instructional Administration; Mathematics; Library--Instructional Resources; Science and Technology; and Social Science. Abstracts are provided of the papers and descriptions that were circulated during the conference. An evaluation of the conference by slightly more than 50% of the attendees is summarized. The status of individualized instruction is presented as to advantages of individualized instruction and the format of the instruction (audio-tutorial, programmed, laboratory, and self-directed learning). It is stated that most, if not all, community colleges now employ some individualized instruction. Research is needed to determine the kinds of individualized instruction programs that are helpful in solving teaching-learning problems in community colleges. (DB)
