Research was undertaken to establish guidelines for applying programed instruction to training courses in which rules and principles must be learned. The research vehicle was a portion of a course using automated instruction to teach computer programing. The effects of various factors on helping the students remember and apply the instruction were tested. As a result of information obtained from these experimental situations, the materials were simplified, and certain format features were added. The course was later completed by including a section on the use of index registers in computer programing. Although the final version of the course has yet to be applied to military training, the expectation is felt that it would be useful in a military setting. (Author/MF)
