Dennis, J. Richard
This paper presents the notion of a "question episode," the smallest complete unit of computer- student interaction in computer assisted instruction, and describes such important elements as question types, student input, interpretation of student inputs, computer replies, and duration limits. Included are some guidelines to help determine the quality of question episodes found in computerized lessons. This resource for preservice and inservice teacher training suggests two study activities and lists one reference. (Author/CMV)
