Computer Aided Instruction; Theory and Practice.
Stolurow, L. M.
An argument is made in this document for the development and testing of Computer Aided Instruction teaching models that are prescriptive as well as descriptive. It is felt that a Computer Aided Instruction system is needed more as a "Theory Machine" and a "Laboratory" than as an instrument for implementation. As the communication between the human teacher and student does not proceed in accordance with any one standardized set of rules, it is felt that the computer system must be programed in such a manner that its teaching strategies may be varied to adapt to individual student response modes. One research problem which is explored is the identification of useful variables to include in both the "if" and "then" statements of teaching rules. A study is described which examines the consequences of using a particular rule of adaptive instruction. Charts, sample frames, and references are included. (SH)
