The Relative Efficiency of Pretesting and Two Types of Programed Instruction for Solving Maneuvering Board Problems.
Meyer, John K.
Study time for a large frame and a small frame type of program explanation in maneuvering solutions was compared using two equated, pretested groups of enlisted men in a basic Combat Information Center (CIC) techniques course and two equated groups assigned to basic electricity and electronics training. It was found that, by using pretesting, as many as 60 percent of the CIC techniques students could save study time by entering the learning program at an advanced level, and that as much of 42 percent of study time (e.g., over two and one-half hours in the first six of the explanation chatpers alone) could be saved by using a few large rather than many small frames.
