Using Computers in Higher Education; Past Recommendations, Status, and Needs.
Hamblen, John W.
Data from a survey conducted with National Science Foundation support, which was published in December 1970, are reviewed. It is pointed out that, with regard to computers in higher education, national goals stated in the Rosser and Pierce Reports have not been attained. Inspection indicates that quality was lacking in hardware or courses in nearly half the associate and bachelor's degree programs in data processing and computer science offered in 1966-67. The conclusion is reached that more and more computers will be needed in higher education and pleas are made for continuing studies on the status and goals for computing in higher education, for the improvement of degree programs and for a national testing laboratory for educational technology.
