Computer Assisted/Programmed Instruction on the Law. Final Report.
Lenn, Peter D.; Maser, Thomas F.
Four programed instruction courses were developed in the form of printed texts. They covered the California Penal Code, the laws of arrest, search and seizure, evidence, and dangerous weapons control laws. The programed courses were used as self-study instructional material for recruit training and for in-service training for policemen. The courses proved to be effective and economical. The presentation of the programed lessons at a computer terminal was evaluated and found to be equally effective as the printed material. However, the computer was found to be less efficient in terms of student time and to be more costly than the workbook format. (JY)
