Teaching and Testing Generic Special Education Concepts by Microcomputer.
Cartwright, G. Phillip; Schloss, Cynthia N.
Microcomputer modules were developed to help Pennsylvania State University students and inservice teachers develop 10 generic competencies regarding working with handicapped students in the least restrictive environment. Competencies touch on understanding the legal bases for education in the least restrictive environment, making use of appropriate resource and support services, and conferring and reporting to parents. The computer assisted instruction course prepares students for a required special education generic competency examination. Students are given a list of suggested remedial activities and references keyed to identified deficiencies. Sample course objectives and procedures for an orientation course are included along with a student manual for the course. (CL)
