This report of the third Indiana-Purdue Language Laboratory Conference emphasizes techniques and teaching in the laboratory rather than a technical discussion of equipment. Major topical divisions subsuming individual author articles are related to: (1) structural drill, (2) evaluation of laboratory technique, (3) current textbooks and the language laboratory, (4) testing tapes, (5) new developments in textual materials, (6) teaching machines, and (7) the language laboratory and the high school. Articles on verb drill and conversation, quality in tape recording and voicing, auditory discrimination, learning specifications, English for foreigners, correlation of the laboratory with the textbook, specific language instruction, achievement testing, prognostic tests, program continuity and coordination, and the library of recorded materials suggest the wide range of topics in the report. The program of the conference and a list of participants are included in the appendix. (RL)
