Current Research Development in Computer-Assisted Instruction.
Hansen, Duncan N.
Computer-Assisted Instruction (CAI) is surveyed in terms of both the extent of research progress as well as the degree of utilization for this new technological approach to education. After a brief review of some of the critical terminology used to describe research progress within CAI, a conceptual framework by which to consider current investigatory efforts is developed. The psychological nature of the CAI situation, concepts of how CAI provides for individualization of instruction, and the procedures and research findings for the use of instructional strategies are examined in detail in the major part of the paper. A discussion of learner strategies and their growing importance within CAI in learning investigations concludes the paper. (Author/SP)
