CAI Utilization for Formative Curriculum Evaluation.
Teates, Thomas; And Others
The Intermediate Science Curriculum Study (ISCS) is a large-scale instructional research project, designed to develop, test and disseminate into practice a system of individualized science instruction for grades seven through nine. This report outlines procedures of curriculum programing and subsequent analysis of the computer mode of presentation. Computer-assisted instruction (CAI) was selected specifically to provide formative evaluation information for the development of materials to be published in printed form for use in schools in the field. The report describes the program's development, first on the IBM-1400 and later on the IBM-1500 system, and the statistical evaluation of the programing and student responses. Appendices include comparisons of the first and third year CAI and field trial text materials, a sample of the printout material, and the enter and process codes used for the system. (JY)
