Improved Learning Practices Through Diagnosis of Individual Pupil Needs, Prescription and Implementation for Fulfilling Those Needs. (COLAMDA Project.)
A complete mathematics testing program, involving diagnosis, prescription, and implementation, was developed by the Committee of Low-Achievers in Mathematics, Denver Area (COLAMDA), for use with low achievers in grades 7-12. A complete set of performance objectives serves as the course outline. Seventy-nine pretests and post-tests, covering whole numbers, decimals, fractions and percentages, determines student mastery of the objectives. (These tests and accompanying keys form a major part of this document). A computer is used to rapidly identify student deficiencies. The mathematics laboratory is the vehicle which introduces COLAMDA's innovative teaching strategies. Individualized instruction is accomplished through various fluid grouping techniques. Positive change in student and teacher attitude, as well as mathematical progress, is an integral part of evaluation of COLAMDA. For related information, see TM 003 415. (NE)
