Language SW Gives Diagnostic Info
Diagnostic Prescriptive Grammar helps to promote mastery of different parts of the English language. The program contains six disks covering Nouns, Adjectives, Pronouns, Verbs, Adverbs, and Prepositions and Conjunctions.
Six diagnostic tests determine the student's understanding of grammar and directs them to an appropriate lesson, focusing on a particular grammar skill. A review section follows each topic, and students advance to higher levels at their own pace.
A teacher's utility feature provides diagnostic information and records progress for an unlimited number of students. The program is appropriate for ESL, middle school, high school, adult education and college developmental studies programs. Merit Audio Visual, New York, NY, (800) 753-6488. WD
