Principles of Programming as Applied to the Development of Two Self-Instructional Programs for SAGE Operators.
Shettel, Harris H.; Lumsdaine, Arthur A.
To facilitate the development of self-instructional programs for the SAGE Track Monitor and Intercept Director, job characteristics were outlined in behavioral terms, including: job knowledge, decision-making, problem-solving, perception, position-motor, symbolic identification, and sequential. Task characteristics were related to the following program variables: form of response, type of feedback, method of cueing, size-of-step, organization of frames, and branching. Programing considerations are discussed, sample frames provided, and the results of a study comparing two programing techniques reported. (EMH)
