Design and Evaluation of a CAI Program in Chemical Equilibrium. Technical Report Number 8.
Lasater, Mary Beth
The design, development, and evaluation of a computer-assisted instruction (CAI) program in first-year college chemistry is described in this report. The program was centered around the concept of chemical equilibrium and used a systems approach with explicitly stated guidelines. The purpose of this experiment was not to measure the effectiveness of the course content, but rather to investigate the usefulness and effectiveness of the particular developmental processes and design techniques that were employed. The results of the program revealed basically that students with low mathematical capabilities upon entering the course take longer to finish the prescribed sequences and that a student's criterion score is inversely related to his path length through the course.
