A Computer Aided Implementation of Precision Teaching.
A computer implementation of precision teaching for severely mentally handicapped students is described. Computer technology reduces staff time during a typical precision teaching routine: design of suitable teaching programs, a series of timed short drills using these programs, conversion of results into numeric quantities, and design of improved programs from the numeric quantities obtained. Computer applications in recordkeeping are noted. Specific information on hardware address such aspects as projector, switch and clock controller, and the voice synthesizer controller. Similarly, information is detailed on the file system and computer software, including the synthesizer unit, the statistics package, and the library and date units. It is concluded that the system appears to be a success, and that it is both easy to use and reliable. (CL)
