MONIFORMS as Authoring Aids for the PLATO IV CAI System.
Schulz, Russel E.
An analysis of portions of the HumRRO (Human Resources Research Organization) developed computer-assisted instruction (CAI) course in COBOL programing, and a survey of representatives from Advanced Research Project Agency (ARPA) PLATO IV installations indicated a need for authoring aids that could be prepared and programed easily and quickly. The nine MONIFORMS resulting from this study are useful for rapid development of certain frequently used CAI material. These authoring aids are partially precoded formats which make use of HumRRO subroutines for question execution. MONIFORMS are used for development of single questions--of the multiple choice, constructed response, and matching type--that can be combined with material prepared by conventional methods. The characteristics of these MONIFORMS are described together with comments on future developments to be made in CAI material generation for military training. (Author/DGC)
