A Plan for Research Toward Computer-Aided Instruction With Natural English. Technical Memorandum.
Simmons, Robert S.; Silberman, Harry F.
A research program was planned to develop a first, experimental computer-assisted instruction system that would permit interaction with students in a subset natural English. At the base of this system was a model of cognition that would represent the knowledge content of the material to be taught and the student's current knowledge of it. A comparison of the model of student current knowledge and the model of the material to be taught offered a basis for feeding back appropriate information to the student to move him toward the eventual training goal. The research was planned in two concurrent phases. The first developed language processing technology based on Photosynthex III. The second used tutorial studies to discover appropriate methods for training the students. The first appendix consists of material outlining the Cognitive Structure Model for Verbal Understanding, and the second is a Sample of the Minimal lesson Structure. (Author/GO)
