Experimentation With Computer-Assisted Instruction In Technical Education. Semi-Annual Progress Report. Report No. R-6.
Mitzel, Harold E.; And Others
Six research studies involving computer assisted instruction (CAI) are reported. "Gradient and Full-Response Feedback in Computer-Assisted Instructions" did not substantiate the hypothesized advantages of gradient-response over full response feedback on the basis of amount learned (n=24). "Relative Effectiveness of Various Modes of Stimulus Presentation through Computer-Assisted Instruction" reported no significant differences for audio, typed, or display modes of presentation, but all three were significantly better than no instruction (n=90). "Expressed Student Attitudes under Several Conditions of Automated Programed Instruction" reported the use of "contingent prompting and feedback" and "knowledge of correct response" computer-assisted instruction and a programed text all containing the same program with 66 students in grades 9 and 10. A 40-item attitude scale revealed both methods resulted in significantly greater positive attitude than did the programed text. "Remedial and Review Branching in Computer-Assisted Instruction" contrasted branching and nonbranching programs. Results from 42 students indicated no differences in learning but the branching program required more time. Two projects which are in progress on "Numerical and Verbal Aptitude Tests Administered at the CAI Student Station" and "CAI Time Accounting and Usage Analysis" are reported. VT 005 978 is a similar report. (EM)
