Engineering Operational CAI.
Boessenroth, Theodore; And Others
If a course using computer-assisted instruction (CAI) is to follow the author's philosophy and design, it is important that communication between author and coder be explicit. Here, a set of definitions and flowcharts are presented which allow an author to describe precisely to the coder alternate choices which a student using the program may make. By using these sample definitions and flowcharts, it is possible for author and coder to communicate clearly. The second part of this document describes an effective collaboration between author and coder in developing a course in mathematics fundamentals. Close contact between them produced consistency of approach and product. However, turnover of staff and deadline pressure made it difficult to maintain this close contact. The staff nevertheless felt such contact is desirable. (JK)
