Computer-Based Adaptive Instructional Strategies for the Improvement of Performance and Reduction of Time.
Tennyson, Robert D.; Tennyson, Carol L.
Three design strategies for selecting number of instructional instances needed in concept learning were investigated. Two strategies used adaptive procedures for the selection, while a nonadaptive strategy selected instances by number of associated attributes. The data analysis showed that the full adaptive strategy (using pretask and on-task response data) required 25% less learning time and resulted in better posttest performance (p < .01) than the partial adaptive strategy (pretask data only). The partial adaptive strategy was 16% more efficient and demonstrated better performance (p < .01) than the nonadaptive. An effectiveness ratio of 2 to 1, in favor of the full adaptive over the partial and nonadaptive strategies, was obtained. (Author)
