Basic Computer Skills Assessment - Kathleen
Judy & Kathy Lancaster
program is an interactive computer literacy assessment for students in
adult basic education. It is intended to:
pre and post computer skill assessment of students enrolled in ABE
whether a student has necessary computer skills to be successful
in post secondary education or training
if a student has basic computer skills required to enter
Notation - Kathleen Judy
Notation is an introduction to that topic.
It can be used alone or with direct instruction. I have used it
to help students get that extra few points needed to pass a test.
It is done in
Toolbook and should work on any newer PC.
Division - Kathleen Judy
Long Division program gives
students control over unlimited practice.
The student chooses
the number of digits in the divisor and dividend.
Then the problems are made using a random number generator
which makes huge numbers of problems possible.
screen shows the current problem the student was given. This is done
one color coded step at a time. The
student clicks for the next step to be shown.
The program will
print, but if the type of problem is changed, printed information is
not accurate. I
have the students write and work each problem on an assigned paper and
turn that page in.
This program is not
intended to be used without some form of direct instruction.
Number Arithmetic - Kathleen Judy
Number Arithmetic is randomized for unlimited, student directed
practice with negative numbers. The
print to file option lets someone make a work sheet and answer sheet.
Click new question. If
it is a question that you want to include on the work sheet, hit Print
to File. Repeat to add more questions. There will be two new text
files created on the c:\ drive. One is the answers and the other the
questions. These can be
opened in Word and reformatted, font changed or what ever the person
wants to do. After use,
save the document as another title, and delete the original text
files. The program will just put new questions after old if the file
is left there.
I have had some
success with this program with my students who need extra practice,
but some computers need the resolution adjusted for the text boxes and
questions to fit.
