Implementing Mainline CAI.
Rappaport, Wanda
A 16-month demonstration project is implementing the Time Shared, Interactive, Computer Controlled Information Television (TICCIT) system in two community colleges. Participating are the MITRE Corporation, Brigham Young University (BYU), Educational Testing Service (ETS), Phoenix College of the Maricopa, Arizona County Community College District, and the Alexandria Campus of Northern Virginia Community College. Both of these latter institutions have large, heterogeneous student populations and histories of instructional innovation. The overall implementation plan assigns the responsibility for courseware development in math and English and for formative evaluation to BYU; summative evaluation will be handled by ETS, system maintenance by MITRE, and operational aspects by the community colleges. Local management control systems have been designed for TICCIT and computer-assisted instruction (CAI)-oriented faculty roles have been developed. The empirical evidence to be collected will indicate if such CAI systems are successful; if so, it should lead to a demand for additional courseware and for the development of in-house courseware development capabilities at the local community college level.
