Computer-Assisted Instruction. An ABE/GED Curriculum Project. Final Report. A 310/Special Demonstration Project 1984-1985.
Rio Salado Community Coll., AZ.
A project was conducted to develop and implement a program of computer-assisted instruction (CAI) for students enrolled in adult basic education (ABE) and general educational development (GED) programs throughout Arizona. The following activities were completed during development of the comprehensive ABE/GED CAI program: identification and employment of a trained instructional aide and support personnel, coordination of a concentrated promotional campaign, purchase of supplemental software and GED materials, and dissemination of information concerning GED testing sites in Arizona. The CAI program was integrated with traditional ABE/GED materials and curricula normally provided at the project site in such a manner that students spent approximately half their time using the computer and the other half completing more traditional paper-and-pencil activities. A resource guide was then developed for other ABE/GED programs and agencies throughout Arizona who were considering using CAI. (Attachments to this project report include a screening device used for placing students in the CAI program, a sample student prescription or study guide outlining activities and assignments, and an inventory of materials at the demonstration project site.)
