Selected Characteristics of TUTOR Programs Produced in ARPA-Sponsored PLATO Projects.
Francis, Larry; And Others
This document reports on a study of several characteristics of the Computer Based Education (CBE) lessons written at military training sites whose CBE projects were sponsored by the Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency (ARPA). The purposes of the study were (1) to demonstrate the potential of computer-based scanning of CBE programs as a means for extracting information about the programming techniques used; (2) to suggest the use of computer-scanning techniques to aid the management of CBE development efforts; and (3) to provide additional information about the products of CBE lesson development projects conducted under ARPA sponsorship. The lesson characteristics selected for examination were chosen on the basis of: (1) the ease and reliability of their measurement and (2) their importance in CBE. Most data are reported on a site-by-site basis. (Author/DAG)
