Project for Application of Mathematical Learning Theory to Second-Language Acquisition, With Particular Reference to Russian. Final Report.
Van Campen, Joseph A.
A Stanford University project in which mathematical learning theory was applied to the learning of Russian in a first-year, computer-based college course is examined in this report. Included in the description of this project, designed to complete and implement the first-year Russian course, are the research and curriculum potentials of computer-based instruction, specific methods and techniques employed in conducting the experiment, and an analysis of the research findings. The bulk of the report appears in the form of appendixes which give examples of computer input codes, descriptions of the computer system, statistics on enrollment, lengthy tables of student responses, final examination results, an outline of grammatical points covered, and samples of the daily student summary sheets.
