The Use of Programed Instruction in U.S. Schools; Report of a Survey of the Use of Programed Instructional Materials in the Public Schools of the United States During the Year 1961-1962.
Columbia Univ., New York, NY. Inst. for Educational Technology.
The second half of a two part survey dealing with available programed instructional materials, and the use of these materials in schools is reported in this volume. The information will assist the potential user of programed materials in handling the parameters with which he is most apt to be concerned: cost, size of experimental population, most frequent methods of use, decisions involved, and the reactions of teachers, administrators, boards of education, parents and students to early experimentation in the schools. The problems, advantages and attitudes occurring at the early stage of the use of programed instruction are discussed. Appendices include the questionnaire used in the survey (along with the response percentages) and several data tables. (JY)
