BASIC PROPERTIES OF AN AUTOMATED TEACHING SYSTEM. FINAL REPORT.
CASE, H.W.; ROE, A.
THE OBJECTIVES OF THE "TEACHING SYSTEMS PROJECT" WERE (1) TO PROVIDE A COMPREHENSIVE MODEL OF THE GENERALIZED AUTOMATED TEACHING SYSTEM, (2) TO EXPRESS THIS MODEL IN MATHEMATICAL TERMS AND DETERMINE THE MAGNITUDE OF THE CONSTRAINTS, AND (3) TO EXPLORE THE COMPUTER FUNCTIONS IN AN AUTOMATED TEACHING SYSTEM. EXPERIMENTS USING VARIOUS KINDS OF PROGRAMING METHODS ARE DESCRIBED. THE CONCLUSIONS FROM THESE EXPERIMENTS LED TO THE DEVELOPMENT OF A RATIONALE FOR A STUDY OF THE ADAPTIVE ABILITY OF COMPUTERS TO MEET THE LEARNING NEEDS OF INDIVIDUAL STUDENTS. THE CONCLUSIONS WERE--(1) THE TIMES REQUIRED FOR LEARNING FROM VARIOUS METHODS OF PROGRAMED INSTRUCTION WERE SIGNIFICANTLY DIFFERENT, (2) THE METHODS OF PRESENTING PROGRAMED SELF-INSTRUCTIONAL ITEMS WERE NOT AS IMPORTANT AS THE SEQUENCING OF THE ITEMS, AND (3) BOTH LINEAR AND BRANCHING PROGRAMS COULD PRODUCE JUST AS MUCH LEARNING AT LESS COST BY USING A CARD FILE AS BY USING A COMPUTER. FURTHER INVESTIGATION WAS DEVOTED TO THE PROBLEM OF ESTABLISHING THE RATIONALE FOR INVESTIGATING THE CAPABILITY OF A COMPUTER TO CONTINUOUSLY ALTER ITS LOGIC PROGRAM OR STRATEGY DURING THE PROCESS OF STUDENT LEARNING.
