Evaluating and Providing Feedback on the Effectiveness of Instruction for Handicapped Children Integrated in Inner-City Secondary Schools. Final Report.
Indiana Univ., Bloomington. Center for Innovation in Teaching the Handicapped.
The final report presents a quarter-by-quarter analysis of results in a project designed to develop and implement a microcomputer-based management system for resource room teachers of mainstreamed mildlly handicapped secondary students. Information was to consist of updated daily records of instructional activities and of the individual student program in each subject area in both regular and resource classes. Quarterly reports address site development activities, computer systems information, data collection and analysis tasks, and computer software information. Teachers had access to an individualized education program system which enhanced daily lesson planning, and were trained to use two software programs: a reading assessment and progress evaluation program and a math assessment and tutorial program. Among major findings were that teachers were able to record and monitor student academic performances via microcomputers; that teachers readily accepted and used certain non-time consuming software programs; and that a math achievement software program contributed to significant achievement improvement of mildly handicapped middle school students.
