Several on-goint activities were conducted during this quarter. Field trials of the Lincoln Training System-3 (LTS-3) at Keesler Air Force Base were extended to include high-aptitude students previously excluded. Results showed such students scored significantly higher on achievement tests and learned substantially faster when they received LTS instruction. An additional study on the use of LTS for task simulation led to the implementation of a new student response interpretation feature for the system. LTS-4 hardware development continued along several lines. Design of the microfiche selector/reader breadboard progressed and an experiment to evaluate pin positioning as an alternative means of vernier positioning was initiated. Results of data demodulation tests indicated that the system will support a 1200 band data rate. Finally, work continued on the evaluation of front-projection and rear-projection screen facilities and on the construction, programing, and debugging of a self-processor. (Author/PB)
