Atkinson, Richard C., Ed.; Wilson, H. A., Ed.
The editors have brought together 21 papers reflecting the current trends in research and development in computer assisted instruction (CAI). The papers were selected to be readable and of general interest to students without a background in CAI. The first four papers deal with the role of computers in education, now and in the future. Three papers are offered on the topic of a systems analysis approach to the development of individualized instruction. An attempt to use optimum learning strategies in a CAI program and a learner controlled program in statistics are described. Three papers describe attempts to utilize CAI in language instruction. Programs developed for CAI testing and drilling are described. Reports on CAI programs in use in Philadelphia and New York City are presented. Four papers cover the development of programing suitable for CAI purposes. The costs of CAI are compared with those of traditional education. Each paper contains a reference list of relevant documents. A collection of data tables is appended. (JY)
