Abstract: This series of 18 instructional programs is designed as supplemental instructional materials for elementary school reading and math curricula, but additionally can be used for remedial or review work for older age groups. The programs provide drills on addition, subtraction, multiplication and division in the math department and spelling word games and phonics in the reading department. One outstanding advantage of these drills is that students find out immediately, before they go on to the next problem, how well they performed and are given appropriate congratulatory messages or helpful hints for solution. ne difficulty of the problems is automatically updated to the present students' performance. Although the programs do not maintain records of student performance for later teacher analysis, the programs do type out the student's score, number of problems tried, number correct, and percentage correct at the end of each program session.
