Interim User's Guide to PLANIT: The Author-Language of the Instructor's Computer Utility. Technical Memorandum.
Frye, C. H.; And Others
PLANIT (Programming Language for Interactive Teaching) is a general purpose teaching system that allows a lesson designer to enter course content into the computer for use as a teaching device. The user (lesson designer or student) communicates with the system via a keyboard. Interacting with PLANIT, he can build and edit lessons, present lessons, and perform computations. PLANIT employs a four mode system: Command Mode, Lesson Building Mode, CaSc Mode, and Executive Mode. Through phonic comparison, keyword matching, and algebraic matching, it also provides service functions for evaluating student answers that depart from the expected response. This manual is the revised edition of the user's guide to the version of PLANIT that operates on the System Development Corporation Q-32 Time-Sharing system. (Author/BB)
