A Coordinated Program for Providing for Individual Students in Large Lecture Sections.
Dolphin, Warren D.; Forbes, Yola
Described is a course development project in progress at Iowa State University, Ames, Iowa, that attempts to meet the individual needs and improve the attitudes of students in a large freshman biology course. Proposed is the implementation of the Phase Achievement System which involves the development of multi-concept level video-cassette lectures available for library use, a computer-based data processing system designed to score examinations and keep student records and to generate master copies of the examinations from an existing 2,500 entry multiple choice question pool. In its entirety, the plan allows for self-pacing of both instruction and testing; a flow chart of the alternative pathways open to students illustrates the flexibility of the Phase Achievement System.
