AUTOMATED INSTRUCTION OF REMEDIAL ENGLISH, VOLUME 1.
DOROUGH, C. DWIGHT; SHAPIRO, MARTIN M.
ENGLISH GRAMMAR WAS TAUGHT BY A PROGRAMED COURSE TO COLLEGE FRESHMEN WHO WERE DEFICIENT IN ENGLISH USAGE. SECTION ONE PRESENTED THE EMPIRICAL RESULTS, SECTION TWO, FURTHER IMPLICATIONS FOR THE TEACHING OF ENGLISH, AND SECTION THREE, THE PROGRAMED COURSE. THE EXPERIMENT COMPARED STUDENTS TAUGHT BY THE PROGRAMED COURSE (EXPERIMENTAL) AND THOSE TAUGHT BY TRADITIONAL METHODS (CONTROL). UPON COMPLETION OF THE SEMESTER, THE ENTRANCE EXAMINATION WAS READMINISTERED ALONG WITH A FINAL EXAMINATION. THE PROGRAMED INSTRUCTION COURSE WAS AS SUCCESSFUL AS, AND, IN MANY RESPECTS, MORE EFFECTIVE THAN THE TRADITIONAL LECTURE COURSE. THE PROGRAMED INSTRUCTION COURSE WAS FOUND SUPERIOR AS A METHOD OF CONDUCTING THE REMEDIAL INSTRUCTION. SECTION FOUR OF THIS PROJECT IS IN ED 003 587. (RS)
