Simulation of Computer-Assisted Instruction (Formerly Developing Concepts in Physics and Geography at the Senior High School Level by Simulation of Computer-Assisted Instruction). Final Report.
Wendt, Paul R.; Woelflin, Leslie
In an attempt to determine whether information and skills necessary to use a university library could be taught in high schools by a method of branching pictorial programing, a series of experiments were conducted with the assistance of high school seniors and college freshmen, juniors and seniors. In Experiment 1, Carbondale High School Students were compared with the College Picture and Print Group. Experiment 2 compared University School and College, Picture-Print and Audio only. Experiment 3 was a comparison of high school classes against the college group on by-passes attempted and successful by-passes. Comparison of University School and College Audio-only was the subject of the fourth experiment. Experiment 5 was concerned with Carbondale Community High School and College, Picture-Print, and grade point. The last experiment, number 6, was a comparison of Picture-Print and Picture-Audio high school groups by GPA levels. Conclusions are detailed at the end of each experiment, and there is an appendix of 15 tables detailing scores in the experiments. (Author/GO)
