The Development of an Individualized Course in Basic Business Filing Rules and Procedures for Post Secondary Deaf Students Utilizing Computer Assisted Instruction, Gregg Programmed Instruction, and Classroom Teacher.
vonFeldt, James R.
Out of a need to provide self-paced instructional units, a project was developed combining various delivery techniques in a unique package designed to increase instructor efficiency and to allow students to proceed with learning as quickly as they are individually able. Although the project is not yet in final form, field testing has been encouraging. Queuing was eliminated; students quickly divided into three distinct groupings and were able to proceed at their own pace; comparison of pre- and post-test data showed an average increase of 35% as a result of the program; overall performance of the class increased; and finally, several students completed their work three weeks ahead of schedule. Long-range plans include an in-depth research effort to discover whether there are any significant differences between this approach and the more traditional classroom/lab situation. (Author/VT)
