Memory Factors in Computer-Controlled Maintenance Training. Final Report, Nov. 1967-Nov. 1968.
Hansen, Duncan N.; Dick, Walter
This investigation explored those characteristics of training variables that might be incorporated into the design of computerized training devices and systems for, or in, computer controlled training (CCT). Memory aids, computer controlled graphics, electronics circuit analysis, and CCT training schedules were studied. Findings included the following: the feasibility of a CCT electronic circuit analysis course containing conceptual presentations from Boolean algebra, logic, and set theory was established; memory processes and related criterion performance were facilitated by graphic presentations via CCT; the availability of CCT memory aids during application of complex concepts and relationships led to improved performance and a 64% saving in response time. Trainees having some prior knowledge used memory aids more effectively. (author/ly)
