Comprehensive Achievement Monitoring (CAM) is a system designed to provide a curriculum defined in terms of performance objectives, test items to measure student performance on each objective, a set of comparable test forms to evaluate performance, testing throughout the period of the course, computerized analysis and reporting of results after test administration, interpretation of results by teachers and students leading to decisions on curriculum and study priorities, and modification of curriculum, instructional activities, and CAM. This report describes the system, its strength, its computerized feedback system, and then provides the CAM design for biology at Menlo-Atherton High School (1972-1973), and the CAM designs for chemistry at San Carlos High School (1971-1972).
