ICIM, Individualized, Competency Based, Instruction in Mathematics: Basic Mathematical Skills. Chicago State University Mathematics Remediation Program.
Bunt, Don D.; Silver, Howard A.
Students entering Chicago State University with less than the minimal level of competence in performing basic operations are assigned to a special course. The course is based on 34 computational objectives in four categories: (1) operations on counting numbers, decimals, and fractions; (2) conversion among fractions, decimals, and percents; (3) percent problems; and (4) prose problems involving proportions. A student earning a grade of 85% on a test of these topics may exit from the course at any time. The course is individualized in that each student completes instructional units at his/her own pace and in an individually determined sequence. Tutorial help is provided and is tailored to the student. The authors have evaluated the program using both norm-referenced and criterion-referenced instruments. They conclude that it is a valid remediation program. (SD)
