Project TAPS. Progress Report Number 2.

TRIGEM, a computer-assisted instruction (CAI) course developed as a part of Project TAPS (Teaching Anatomy with Programed Schematics) is designed to teach the anatomy of the maxillary division of the trigeminal nerve. This course is currently operational on the Harvard CAI System which uses an IBM S 360/Model 65 as the central processor, either teletypes or IBM 1050 consoles as the student interface, and CAILAN as the interactive language. The students also use printed visual aids. A pilot study and a second study are described. The studies were designed to compare the effectiveness of two different ways of presenting visual information while the student is learning and the effect of the student's attitude toward CAI on his rate of learning. An abstract of the TRIGEM course is appended. The report is supplemented by data tables. (Author/JY)
