Learner Control of Instructional Sequencing within an Adaptive Tutorial CAI Environment. Technical Report 75-7.
Seidel, Robert J.; And Others
A study to test the effects of learner control of the sequencing of instructional tasks when using computer-assisted instruction (CAI) systems is described. Using a series of CAI modules to teach the COBOL programing language to military personnel, students were able to control various aspects of their learning environment. Among the research findings were the following: the instructional module was effective in teaching the students to program in COBOL; aptitude treatment interaction studies can be performed in instructionally rich settings; the set of criteria used to characterize high and low performers needs to be diverse and analytical; and self-assessment can make a significant contribution to instructional management.
