The Scope of IMS Version 3.
McManus, John F.
The Southwest Regional Laboratory Instructional Management System (IMS) Version 3, currently installed in four school districts, is described and its current status studied. Preliminary decisions and earlier evaluative tryouts are discussed, including a description of initial materials preparation, training, installation, monitoring operation, and evaluation. A brief history of IMS Versions 1 and 2 is presented to place Version 3 in perspective. Parameters are set forth to assist researchers in defining the scope of further work required to complete the development of Version 3 and address the architecture of incremental versions.
