Collins, Allan M.; And Others
Developments in three areas relating to interactive capabilities on the SCHOLAR computer-assisted instruction (CAI) system are reported. The first section discusses the implementation of two presentation strategies in SCHOLAR -- the Tutorial mode and the Block-Test mode -- and offers a comparative evaluation of these two modes using high school students as subjects. Next, information is presented about an initial study concerning an analysis of tutorial dialogues of how to teach procedureal knowledge interactively within SCHOLAR. Finally, details are provided on the addition of a module for teaching geography using the map display and related question-answering facilities recently added to the system. (Author)
