Measurement Techniques for Individualized Instruction in CAI.
Hansen, Duncan N.; Johnson, Barbara F.
Individualized instruction presents problems in measurement which challenge the conventional measurement paradigms. Measurement techniques must take into consideration the problems of item variance characteristics of computer-assisted instruction (CAI), idiosyncratic learning sequences, and lack of a model for effectiveness assessment. The strategies used at the Florida State University CAI Center focus on two major goals: measurement to provide information on priorities for revision within the CAI course materials and measurement to increase the effectiveness of the instructional process. Measurement techniques which are suited to evaluate three levels of course characteristics--microframe, concept segments within a CAI course effectiveness models--are described and foreseeable future trends are briefly discussed.
