Courseware for Remedial Mathematics: A Case Study in the Benefits and Costs of the Mediated Learning System in the California State University.
This report is one of a series from a project entitled Case Studies in Evaluating the Benefits and Costs of Mediated Instruction and Distributed Learning. This project examines the benefits and costs of the mediated learning system (MLS) courseware for remedial mathematics developed by Academic Systems Corporation. Comparisons were made at two universities that have been using the courseware for the regular classroom sections and MLS sections of the courses offered at each campus. Findings indicate that based on the evidence, it is not possible to reach a definitive conclusion regarding the learning outcomes of MLS versus classroom instruction. This report provides information on the implementation of MLS courseware for remedial mathematics, benefits of MLS student learning outcomes, and the costs of MLS courses compared to regular classroom costs.
