Many educators and economists espouse the ideal that instruction should be tailored for the individual student, but are frustrated by having large classes in which it is virtually impossible to attend to individual needs and abilities. For several years, Professor Allen Kelley has been experimenting with a Teaching Information Processing System (TIPS) whereby information on the individual student is obtained and instruction is geared to the individual through the use of the computer. Preliminary results of the TIPS experiment have been described elsewhere ("AER", May 1968, pp. 446-457; "Economic Education Experiences of Enterprising Teachers," Vol. 7, 1970, pp. 97-98), but this article includes the most recent evaluation data and summarizes Professor Kelley's award-winning entry in the Kazanjian Foundation's Awards Program for the Teaching of Economics.
