Computer-Assisted Instruction: The Microcomputer as an Electronic Teacher's Aide.
The paper examines the application of IMS--Instruction Management Systems--on classroom instruction with exceptional students. IMS, a computer-based material generation and record management software program which has been field tested in secondary school resource rooms in Utah and Idaho, is a unique model in that it includes aspects of both computer assisted instruction and computer managed instruction. Each of the major components of IMS are described: sequenced objectives, placement tests, worksheets (instruction, practice, mastery, and review worksheets), student progress records, and accompanying teacher manual. So far, teacher reactions to the product have been favorable, and it is possible that IMS may soon become a useful "electronic aide" in the classroom. (CL)
