Questions and Answers on Programed Instruction.
Henry, Sarah T.
Materials for inservice and preservice teacher education were developed by home economics specialists for use by teachers and college students. The paper attempts to clarify some typical questions confronting teachers of all subject matter areas as they consider incorporating programed instruction in their classes. Using a question-answer format the paper conveys basic information such as: (1) Behavioral goals are expressed as desired outcomes, (2) Learning is continuously reinforced and is organized in a logical sequence, (3) Cornitive and psychomotor concepts are most applicable to programed instruction, (4) There are two basic types of program--constructed response and multiple choice, (5) Teaching machines, programed books, and computer assisted instruction are some of the forms of program instruction, (6) Subject matter specialists, trained in programing techniques, are considered to be most qualified to prepare program materials, (7) Programs have structured built-in evaluating devices, and (8) Research indicates there are no significant differences in retention by students of programed learning and those who learned by conventional methods. Suggested criteria for program material selection consider content, style, challenge, length, and cost. A chart of annotated home economics program instruction materials lists title, author-publisher, date, price, and other miscellaneous information. (FP)
