Computer Applications in Individually Guided Education: A Computer-Based System for Instructional Management (WIS-SIM). Needs and Specifications. Working Paper No. 125.
Belt, Sidney L.; Spuck, Dennis W.
A model of computer managed instruction is reported which emphasizes the use of the Wisconsin System for Instructional Management (WIS-SIM) in classroom level decision making. Two major decision areas, specifying performance expectations and selecting appropriate educational experiences, were identified, and five major processes involved in WIS-SIM were specified: testing, achievement profiling, diagnosing, prescribing, and instructing. The WIS-SIM model was applied to two of the Wisconsin R & D Center's instructional programs--the Wisconsin Design for Reading Skill Development and Developing Mathematical Processes. A summary of the implementation schedule, identifying three successive annual applications of WIS-SIM is also presented. (Author/WH)
