Planning for the Evaluation of the PLATO Computer-Based Instructional System: Attitudinal and Performance Evaluation in the Elementary Schools.
Breland, Hunter M.
The planning for the evaluation of achievement and attitudes in Programmed Logic for Automatic Operations (PLATO) elementary school reading and math programs is discussed. To measure the achievement of the students in the program, standardized tests will be used along with special tests custom-tailored to the PLATO reading and math programs. Pupils will also be observed on a one-to-one basis. To assess the students' attitudes toward the program, group tests will be administered as a background to a more direct approach of asking individual children a standard set of questions about their feelings toward the program. Finally, in the evaluation of the PLATO program there is no control group. However, there is a need to observe the differences that occur in a naturalistic setting. Consequently, four types of comparisons among different groups are planned, and it is believed that arguments concerning the effects of PLATO can be constructed. (Author/MLP)
