This report describes SCRIPTER, a simple interpreter program prepared for the PDP-9 computer (a single-terminal computer-assisted instruction [CAI] system with a small graphic display, a storage scope display and a hybrid magnetic type unit), intended to be superior to earlier CAI systems by providing an efficient and economical means for the incorporation of teacher-prepared materials. SCRIPTER is designed so that (1) almost any programmed-instruction materials can be put into the computer; (2) by a careful analysis of a script, the amount of typing or specification can be reduced as much as possible, while retaining readability, especially for non-computer-oriented teachers; and (3) the semiautomatic structuring of teaching texts is provided for. Part of a script prepared for a course in English as a second language is given as a sample of the procedure. (Author/FWB)
