Community College Users' Report, Fall 1975.
Zimmer, A. L., Ed.
This report was compiled from information supplied by instructors participating in the National Science Foundation's community college field test of PLATO IV--a computer-based system developed at the University of Illinois--during the fall semester of 1975. Represented here are the responses of instructors at five Illinois community colleges to both the equipment and courseware of the PLATO system. This report is organized according to five subject areas: accountancy, biology, chemistry, English, and mathematics. Each subject area is prefixed by a coordinator's summary, and includes a series of case studies organized by instructor, rather than by class. The case reports are divided into three sections: (1) a compilation of the responses to instructor and course questionnaires; (2) an abstract of an interview with each instructor; (3) a quick reference graph showing student use data for each of the instructor's courses. The course and instructor survey instruments and the instructor's summaries are included. (Author/NHM)
