Programmed Instruction with Microfiche: Intoduction to the Slide Rule.
Wachtel, L. W.
The use of microfiche as a means of programed self-instruction was examined in this study. Lessons adapted from a one-hour lecture on the slide rule were typed in large print in order to allow easy reading at distances normally used with microfiche readers. The 58 pages of the course were reproduced on microfilm, strips of which were then inserted into clear plastic microfiche jackets. The complete course was duplicated on single diazo sheets, which were available for distribution. Acceptability and effectiveness of the programed course were evaluated by two groups of students divided according to prior knowledge of the slide rule. Results indicated that utilization of microfiche for self-instruction is feasible, but that it is most effective when employed as a reinforcement or supplement to classroom instruction. Sources of supply of all equipment and materials, details of the procedure employed, and a sample diazo sheet of the course are included in the report. (Author/JY)
