Development of an APL Program for Generating Punctuation and Usage Exercises in Freshman English. Technical Report Number 13.
Freed, Michele; Bunderson, C. Victor
During the years 1968-1971, the Computer-Assisted Instruction Laboratory at the University of Texas at Austin has developed and implemented three major program designs for use in teaching English punctuation and usage. The initial design was a frame-by-frame approach in which each instruction was prepared by the author and coded separately. The second program took the parts of the original program that could be generalized (i.e., the sentences from the quizzes, exercises, and examples) and put them into sentence pools that were referenced by the program. The third program utilized the workable concepts of the second program, added to them, elaborated on them, and translated the entire program into APL (programing language). Comparisons among the features of the three versions are made, and an appendix provides a number of flow charts from the programs. (Author/RH)
