A National Survey of the Use of Computer Assisted Instruction in Schools for the Deaf. Final Report.
vonFeldt, James R.
This survey was the first systematic attempt to identify use of computer assisted instruction (CAI) in schools for the deaf. Eleven of the 50 states surveyed (46% questionnaire return rate) identified CAI systems in 34 schools for the deaf with a total of 408 terminals; elementary and secondary schools for the deaf were the predominant users. Of special note is the indication that schools for the deaf are not time sharing between administrative and educational uses--dedicated instructional systems are the rule, and 28 of the 34 computer systems are used strictly for CAI.
