Abstract : Within a terminal-oriented CMI system, the study investigated the feasibility of presenting remedial instruction to students by computer as compared to remedial instruction presented by a teacher. Approximately 70 seventh grade mathematics students worked individually in self-instructional booklets for a period of 15 weeks. Upon completion of each booklet, the student was evaluated by direct contact with a computer through teletype terminals. Half of the students, if the criterion of 80% was not attained, received remediation from an instructional sequence programmed into the computer. The other half of the students received remediation from their teacher. The remediation results for both groups are discussed. (Author)
