Student Acceptance of the TICCIT System: A Preliminary Study.
Asay, Calvin S.; Schneider, Edward W.
Twenty male and female students from a high school psychology class participated in a formative evaluation of student acceptance and performance with the Primary Instruction Logic of the TICCIT delivery system. A secondary goal was a pilot effort to design a carrel that would optimize certain parameters of the physical/environmental conditions affecting TICCIT users. After receiving instructions and terminal training from an evaluator, each student completed two segments from a freshman English course designed on TICCIT. Each student then completed a questionnaire while an evaluator completed a subjective observation checklist on the student. Results indicated that students accepted and were intrigued by the Primary Instruction Logic of TICCIT, and were able to learn how to operate the keyboard, learn the material, and enjoy the experience. They seemed to enjoy developing their own strategies for manipulating the instruction, but expected guidance for making strategy decisions and training on the use of the keyboard. Further studies on lighting, spatial relations, noise, and color are needed in designing the carrel for the TICCIT terminal. Appendices include (1) the subjective observation checklist, (2) the student questionnaire, (3) instructions for terminal operation, and (4) a summary of control key operation. (CMV)
