Research on Learning Strategies and Hands-On Training in CAI. Final Report, 1 January 1975 to 30 September 1978.
Towne, Douglas M.; And Others
This final report reviews research performed in two major areas--instructional theory, and development of a generalized maintenance trainer simulator. Five related research projects were carried out in the domain of instructional theory: (1) the effects of visual analogies of abstract concepts, (2) Markov decision models for instructional sequence optimization, (3) electrophysiological correlates of cognitive processing, (4) cognitive strategies for text processing, and (5) heuristic techniques for logical problem solution. Work on the development of the maintenance trainer simulator included tests of the system in naval training environments and led to a project to further develop the system for regular use in Navy Schools. A list of references includes citations for 14 technical reports, seven chapters in books or articles in journals, and nine papers for professional meetings. (Author/JEG)
