Easter, John; And Others
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 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 offers the CAM philosophy, discusses the five different types of computerized feedback--individual student reports, group summary reports, teacher summary reports, form analyses, and curriculum analyses--and provides examples of each. The CAM data processing system is detailed, and then the CAM program in mathematics at Ravenswood High School (1970-1973), the CAM program for earth science at San Carlos High School (1969-1973), and the CAM program in basic comprehension skills in reading at Woodside High School are described.
