CAM--How to Use It. A Teacher's Approach to CAM.
Kosel, Marge; Horn, Marcia
A guide is presented to the various uses of Comprehensive Achievement Monitoring (CAM), a computer-based instructional management system which provides relevant data on course objectives to elementary and secondary teachers and students after students are tested. Among the uses discussed are: student coupons, which list objectives on which the students are tested; a roster list for the teacher; a group summary report which may affect curriculum development and lesson plans; evaluation of new test forms; individual student evaluation; item analysis, mainly in connection with item or curriculum revision; the embedding of standardized test items in CAM tests; individualized education, using contracts; and the identification of core objectives or placement test items.
