Computer Assisted Instruction Center. Semiannual Progress Report; July 1, 1967 through December 31, 1967. Report Number 6.
Hansen, Duncan N.; And Others
The greater part of this progress report embraces a series of research reports which represent empirical findings during the 1967 academic year. They range from results derived from the first field testing of the college physics, multi-media CAI course, through a series of specific experimental studies focusing on learning and adaptive variables open to manipulation within CAI. One part of the report depicts plans and phased objectives for the major projects within the CAI Center. Plans are continued for a collegiate physics course, the CAI course in social welfare, and the Intermediate Science Curriculum Study course. Activities have been inaugurated for teacher recruitment and placement, the use of systems concepts within education, and accompanying data management and analysis programs required to facilitate research efforts. Another section presents studies in progress, and these range from the use of CAI in collegiate counseling processes to the use of the CAI system to study discrimination processes under varying attitudinal reinforcement conditions. An appendix is provided. [Not available in hard copy due to marginal legibility of original document.] (Author/GO)
