Abstract: 
The objectives of the present study are to develop
an automated computer system for
diagnosis and remediation and to construct a
conceptual model of remediation in fractions.
The initial stage of the project began
with the construction of an instrument to
investigate the subjects' performances in
addition of fractions. The items were based
on a set of four objectives in addition of
fractions. The test was administered to 3000
subjects who were classified as below average
in fractions. The test was readministered a
week later. The responses of the subjects
were analysed and systematic errors were
classified. An automated computer system
for diagnosis and remediation in addition of
fractions was developed. It consisted of three
subsystems, viz. (a) diagnostic system of
errors, (b) drill and practice for remediation,
and (c) automated generation of text
materials for remediation. To accompapy
the computer system for diagnosis and remediation,
a conceptual model on remediation
of addition of fractions was developed
which was based on the hypothetical remedial
activities.
