Summary

A self-diagnostic system called the Automated Individualized Diagnosis System (AID) tested at the Reading and Study Skills Center, University of Minnesota, was designed to replace the human counselor. It consists of an answer sheet, a Self-Analysis Profile Blank, and an audio tape which helps the student derive his reading profile and select the practice materials he needs. Three trials conducted showed that the system had no adverse effect on the length of contact the students had with the reading program. The students were generally satisfied with the system's efficiency in giving specific information on profiling reading ability and using this profile as the basis of diagnosis and remediation. However, they felt that the presence of a human counselor would add warmth, friendliness, and a feeling of security. Like other automated instructional systems, the AID fails in the affective domain.
