A Guide to Computer Simulations of Three Adaptive Instructional Models for the Advanced Instructional System Phases II and III. Final Report.
Hansen, Duncan N.; And Others
Computer simulations of three individualized adaptive instructional models (AIM) were undertaken to determine if these models function as prescribed in Air Force technical training programs. In addition, the project sought to develop a user's guide for effective understanding of adaptive models during field implementation. Successful simulations of the Drill and Practice Model, the Pacing Model and the Monitoring Model were accomplished and operational feasibility was demonstrated. In addition, a User's Guide was prepared and a single integrated technical package developed to describe how the models operate. It was recommended that simulations of at least two additional models--Concept Acquisition and Dynamic Programing--be made and that empirical validation of model effectiveness be conducted employing actual students in real time. Such research would allow the comparison of alternative instructional strategies, assess student attitudes toward computerized instruction, and provide a means of gaining experience in the optimization of instructional strategies prior to widespread Air Force implementation.
