Tryout and Evaluation of Prototype LMS (Learning Mastery System) Training System Under Exclusive Use Agreement.
McDonald, Cheryl; Hylton, John A.
In 1970-1971 Learning Mastery System (LMS) materials were made available to schools within the state of California under an Exclusive Use Agreement. The LMS is a set of materials and procedures prepared by the Southwest Regional Laboratory (SWRL) as an objectives-based framework to assist in managing the learning activities of existing reading programs and materials. Thirty-six districts, including a total of 988 classrooms, were involved. To meet the user training requirement, a prototype training system was developed. This document summarizes the evaluation of the prototype LMS training system for Harper & Row grade-one and MacMillan Bank Street grade-one reading programs, including the evaluation procedures and instrumentation used, as well as a summary of the findings.
