The computer can save today's overworked teacher some valuable time by providing some of the supplementary drill work that many students need so badly. Another time-saver is computer managed instruction. Several Radio Shack programs, including the K-8 MATH WITH STUDENT MANAGEMENT program, NUMERIC DATA ENTRY PRACTICE, C.A.R.D. I: SENTENCES, the STUDENT RECORDS SYSTEM for the HIGH MOTIVATION READING SERIES, and QUICK QUIZ: A MINI-AUTHORING SYSTEM, feature automatic storage of student scores on diskette. This saves time when the lesson is taken because the teacher can keep permanent records without having to record performance information off the screen when the student finishes the lesson. And it saves time later because the computer calculates the score—the teacher doesn't have to sit up all night grading quizzes and exercises.
