Individualized Report Assignments via Computer


In order to provide technical communication students with individual projects that reflect real "world of work" conditions and that permit all students, regardless of their level of technical sophistication, to obtain the necessary report data, computer software has been developed offering three alternative projects for a report writing assignment. After deciding upon problems involving either a forest management, a library acquisitions and facilities expansion, or a municipal bonding feasibility scenario, students question the computer and evaluate the information generated. Student evaluations of the procedure have been generally favorable. (MM)
