Development of a Model for Adaptive Training via Computer-Assisted Instruction Utilizing Regression Analysis Techniques.
Dick, Walter; And Others
This study attempted to produce a dynamic decision model for an ongoing learning situation presented via computer-assisted instruction (CAI). In addition to student performance on learning frames, criterion frames, and quiz items, the study was concerned with additional learning variables such as latencies for each of the above measures, and the subject's confidence of his response on the criterion of quiz questions. The relationship of these variables to quiz and final examination performance was investigated through correctional analysis. Based on the results of correlation and regression analyses with the quizzes and final exam as the dependent measures, the relevant variables were incorporated into the decision model. The decision model was implemented and validated with an independent group of students. It was shown to be effective in identifying those trainees who needed remedial instruction. A reference list, samples of material used to gather data, and equations developed to analyze data are appended. (Author/JY)
