A study of computer-assisted instruction (CAI) for US Army basic electronics training at the US Army Signal Center and School establishes the feasibility of CAI as a training technique. Three aspects of CAI are considered: effectiveness, efficiency, and applicability of CAI to basic electronics training. The study explores the effectiveness of the learning achieved by the student and the time required to complete the course material. An analysis of current training costs compared to estimates of CAI costs is used to establish the efficiency of a CAI training system. Computer-assisted instruction is shown to be applicable to Army training methods and educational strategies as well as to new communication and electronics equipment maintenance training. (Author)
