Programmed Instruction: Techniques and Trends.
O'Day, Edward F.; And Others
The several research studies reported in this book are based on data supplied over a two-year period of nearly three thousand learners from a state college, three separate junior colleges, and a military installation. These studies attempted to assign relative figures of merit to the popular techniques of Skinner, Crowder, and Pressey, and also to examine new combinations of the familiar programed instruction (PI) techniques of overt responding, immediate feedback, and small-steps. PI principles themselves were also studied in a configurative network of specified classes of learners. The results of these studies lead the authors to make specific recommendations about programing techniques. A bibliography is supplied. Appendices include samples of the formats studies and the resulting data tables. (JY)
