CCP: A Diagnostic/Prescriptive Approach to Remediation for "At Risk" Students.
Francis, Mary Louise
The Comprehensive Competencies Program (CCP) is an alternative educational approach specializing in diagnosing deficiencies and prescribing appropriate learning materials (print, computer, audio-visual) at the correct level to help students progress toward "mastery" of their learning objectives. Academic subject areas include math, English as a Second Language (ESL), reading, writing, social studies, and science. "Functional" subject areas include occupational knowledge, consumer economics, government and law, citizenship competencies, health resources, and community resources. This competency-based program is individualized and self-paced. The computer management system allows for immediate feedback with unit tests after each sequence of lessons, and level tests after each sequence of units. Students receive individualized attention in a supportive environment. At-risk learners need a learning environment that is efficient, nonthreatening, and supportive, with real-life relevance and clearly stated learning goals. The CCP diagnostic/prescriptive approach can successfully be used with this at-risk population as a remedial "add on," a replacement for one or more subject area classes, or a completely alternative program of instruction in basic skills.
