Design Specifications for the Generalized Wisconsin System for Instructional Management (WIS-SIM). Working Paper No. 133 (Part 2 of 2 Parts).
Belt, Sidney L.; Spuck, Dennis W.
This publication is part 2 of a two-part paper that presents design specifications for the Wisconsin System of Instructional Management (WIS-SIM), a computerized management system designed for instructional programs that are compatible with the Individually Guided Education model. WIS-SIM incorporates processes for placement testing, performance profiling, and specifying performance specifications to aid in diagnosing and identifying students' instructional needs. Once instructional needs have been identified, WIS-SIM aids in guiding the instructional process and selecting appropriate instructional activities, and in evaluating the success of the instructional program. This part of the paper discusses ways of adapting WIS-SIM for use with a variety of available computer configurations and outlines plans for further development and evaluation of the system. The appendix presents detailed information on coding data and designing programs for particular applications of WIS-SIM. (Author/JG)
