Research and development activities of the Computer-Assisted Instruction (CAI) Center at Florida State University during 1970 are summarized. The Office of Naval Research sponsored research in four areas: learner strategies, training strategies, validation strategies, and computer strategies. Topics subsumed under learner strategies include the effects of task variables such as rules, adaptive processes, the methodology of sequential testing to analyze behavior processes, and subjective organization factors in CAI learning. For each of the four strategies a rationale and direction for study are presented. Twenty-nine abstracts of publications in these areas are included. The center's progress in developing (1) a computer-managed instruction (CMI) program in special education; (2) a new elementary teacher training model, and (3) a program in graduate training in education is reported. Other activities described are a CMI course in educational psychology, CAI problem set activities in chemistry and physics, and the CMI approach to theories of learning. (JK)
