PROGRAMMED INSTRUCTION AND LANGUAGE LEARNING.
LUELSDORFF, PHILIP A.
PROGRAMED INSTRUCTION, A TEACHING METHOD WHICH INCORPORATES (1) A DETAILED SPECIFICATION OF TERMINAL BEHAVIOR, (2) A CAREFUL SEQUENCING OF THE MATERIAL INTO GRADED STEPS, AND (3) THE REINFORCEMENT OF STUDENT RESPONSE, WORKS MORE FAVORABLY IN CERTAIN INSTRUCTIONAL MEDIA THAN IN OTHERS. CARROLL AND SKINNER BELIEVE THAT SUCCESS IN PROGRAMED INSTRUCTION CAN BE RELATED TO RESPONDENT-OPERANT BEHAVIOR, BUT NOAM CHOMSKY DISAGREES WITH THIS FUNCTIONAL APPROACH. IN AN EXPERIMENTAL PROGRAM CONDUCTED AT INDIANA UNIVERSITY FROM JUNE 1961 TO JUNE 1964, ALBERT VALDMAN AND HIS ASSOCIATES TESTED A PROGRAMED INSTRUCTION COURSE CALLED MULTIPLE CREDIT INTENSIVE AUDIOLINGUAL ELEMENTARY FRENCH, WHICH ALLOWED STUDENTS TO SET THEIR OWN RATE OF PROGRESS AND WHICH WAS EQUIVALENT TO THE FIRST THREE SEMESTERS OF CONVENTIONAL INTRODUCTORY FRENCH. THE AUTHOR CONCLUDED THAT VALDMAN'S COURSE SEEMED TO BE INCONSISTENT IN THE TYPE OF MATERIAL TAUGHT TO THE EXPERIMENTAL AND CONTROL GROUPS, AND DID NOT CONCRETELY PROVE THAT THE COURSE WOULD BE ECONOMICALLY VIABLE OR REDUCE TEACHER NEEDS. THIS ARTICLE IS A REPRINT FROM THE "PHILIPPINE JOURNAL FOR LANGUAGE TEACHING," VOLUME 3, NUMBERS 3 AND 4, OCTOBER 1965. (FB)
