Using the Apple II Microcomputer to Facilitate the Development of the Individualized Education Plan.
Archer, Doug
This paper describes a prototype system developed for the Green Valley Area Educational Agency 14 in Iowa, which uses the Programming for Individualized Education (PIE) program and a Cluster/One Model A Nestar Micronetworking System to plan and store student records for developmentally disabled and other weighted special education students. The first section describes the software, which is an adaptation of an existing program to facilitate individualized education planning (IEP's) that was originally developed for the Maryland Department of Special Education. A list of functions performed by PIE and the proposed modifications to the PIE existing record format are provided. Background information explains the system features and describes its applications. A sample procedural tracking file for one student and an IEP form as they would look using the system are included. The required hardware to use the proposed system is outlined, including the types of computers, disk drives, terminal locations, interface, and network connections needed. A summary of specifications for the computer system and a diagram showing system input/output connections complete the paper. (LMM)
