Lifetime Library - Local Version

The Lifetime Library consists of 111 lessons, teaching reading, writing, math and algebra with an emphasis on developing the basic skills in these areas. Full motion video, narration, interactive activities, practice exercises, graphics and prose convey the instruction. There are stand-alone placement vehicles, as well as lesson level exams. The lessons can be used as remediation or core instruction, depending on the level of the student.

This is a local, CD-ROM or DVD-ROM product. Gateway, IBM, and Micron distributed the Library for home use. That version stores records for 5 students. Student records are stored in a Paradox database. Time on task and scores on exercise sets and tests are tracked. A simple username system provides access for the student.

The Library provides 6 question types:

  3. 2 column multiple choice
  4. Short answer entry
  5. Fraction entry
