This report outlines the research and development of a CMl system designed to be used in the remediation program for developmentally delayed adults attending the Medicine Hat College. The literature search covers a brief history of computers, discusses a definition of CMl and reports findings of CMl instituted elsewhere. Procedures include the actual design and construction of a data base and the subsequent comparison of the manual and electronic systems. The results indicate that the electronic system is more efficient than the manual system, but that there are still elements of the manual system that must be maintained. Although this particular electronic system does not have the relational or sorting power of some commercial systems, there still appears to be a desire to further modify the system and to integrate the system more closely into the program. Instructors were very impressed with the ease in which reports and IEPs could now be generated. The system also has potential to be incorporated with further developments of CAL and CBT.
