The Commonwealth Computer-Assisted Instruction Consortium's ninth grade algebra and mathematics development programs continued to progress along several lines during the period ending November 15, 1969. Responsibility was assigned for authoring the remaining chapters of the programs and criterion tests were developed for on-line administration at the end of each chapter. Procedures for providing corrections and revisions were established, involving both ad hoc contacts between teachers and consortium staff and regular weekly printouts sent to project headquarters. Training and evaluation conferences for the systems managers and the teachers at the two participating high schools were held and efforts were made to assess the relationships between student attitudes toward algebra and math and time spent on-line, amount of material covered, and mathematics performance. Finally, the IBM 1500 System, 1510 instructional stations, and 1518 image projectors were installed and made operational. (PB)
