Illinois Univ., Urbana. Computer-Based Education Research Lab.
This is a report of a program aimed at the demonstration, tests, and evaluation of the educational and economic effectiveness of PLATO IV computer-based education as implemented in several geographically dispersed military training sites. It also describes a technical program aimed at increasing the cost effectiveness of the PLATO system. During this reporting period efforts of the Military Training Command (MTC) and of the PLATO Educational Evaluation and Research (PEER) groups were directed towards data gathering, researching, and preparing reports describing characteristics of the Advanced Research Projects Agency (ARPA)/PLATO project. The reports, in various stages of preparation, are: (1) Reliability of CBE Systems, (2) An Assessment of Lesson Review as a Formative Evaluation Tool, (3) PLATO IV Terminal Peripheral Devices, (4) TUTOR Training: Lessons Learned, (5) An Overview of Chanute Lessons, (6) A Survey of Chanute Lesson Development Techniques, (7) PLATO Courseware Development Procedure, and (8) Locus of Control in Computer-assisted Instruction. Various data and brief descriptions of smaller projects are presented. (Author/DAG)
