A Description of SNAP Programming. Research Memorandum.
Shriver, Edgar L.; Trexler, Robert C.
Socratic Non-Anacoluthic Programing (SNAP) is designed as a simple way of producing programed materials (under certain conditions) rather than as a method for producing more refined programs. SNAP programing might be regarded as taking the questions and answers from the end of each chapter of a textbook and interspersing them throughout the chapter. The objective of this action would be to prompt the reader to respond to the text more often than he would otherwise. Other features of the SNAP programing technique are personal references and touches of humor designed to humanize the programed material. The directions for learning the SNAP method of programing are presented in programed form. (JY)
