Abstract : An Instructional Management System is described as an interim approach toward widespread adoption of computer-based instruction. An experimental prototype of the Instructional Management System is being developed by System Development Corporation under a contract from the Southwest Regional Laboratory for Educational Research and Development. It is a computer-based information system designed to aid school personnel in the individual monitoring and management of student progress. Inputs to the Instructional Management System include the result of diagnostic tests, and information about the pupils and the instructional resource materials. Machine-prepared outputs show individual and group performance on the diagnostic tests, and suggest alternative instructional materials or teaching techniques that the teacher might use for pupils with specific weaknesses.
