Developing and Implementing Materials for Computer Assisted Instruction. Information System for Vocational Decisions.
Roman, Richard Allan
This final report discusses certain parts of the successes and failures, strengths and weaknesses of the development of the Information System for Vocational Decisions (ISVD) in terms of their relevance to the issues within the area of computer-assisted instruction. A major focus is on the kinds of computer-assisted instruction that promote interactive learning and access to data. In this regard, the scripts which assist inquirers to become monitors of their own decision processes are presented in some detail. A second major focus emphasizes the interaction between subject matter specialists and computer programmers which facilitates the creation, evolution and effectiveness of a computer language for information systems such as ISVD. The third major aspect of this report is a consideration of the setting and constraints surrounding the development of a computer-based system for guidance. (Author/TL)
