Computer Assisted Instruction. Education Automation Monograph Series, [Number One].
Stolurow, Lawrence M.
Computer-assisted instruction (CAI) attacks one of the greatest problems of education--how to get sufficient variety in educational materials to teach each individual without requiring a group of trained personnel to prepare all possible variations. CAI permits individualization electronically. CAI can be used to train problem solving, for drill and practice, to respond to questions, for simulation and gaming, and for tutorial instruction. The CAI system interacts dynamically with the student--it is responsive. The development of CAI models, the examination of student entry behaviors, and the cost of CAI programs are discussed. References and an appendix on the Harvard University CAI Laboratory are included. (RP)
