A Feasibility Study: Remediation By Computer Within A Computer-Managed Instruction Course In Junior High School Mathematics.
Durall, Edwin P.
Approximately 70 seventh grade mathematics students worked individually in self-instructional booklets for a period of 15 weeks. Upon completion of each booklet, the student was evaluated by direct contact with a computer through teletype terminals. If criterion was not attained, half the students received first remediation through the computer and half from the teacher. Further remediation, if necessary, was from the teacher for both groups. The two methods of remediation were equivalent overall, but there was some indication that low ability students found teacher remediation more supportive. Analysis of economic factors in relation to performance measures indicate computer remediation of student performance is not economical at present. However, opposing cost trends for computer hardware and personnel indicate computer remediation could be feasible within a decade. (Author/RH)
