Integrated System Test of the Advanced Instructional System (AIS). Final Report.
Lintz, Larry M.; And Others
The integrated system test for the Advanced Instructional System (AIS) was designed to provide quantitative information regarding training time reductions resulting from certain computer managed instruction features. The reliabilities of these features and of support systems were also investigated. Basic computer managed instruction reduced training time from that required for conventional instruction by 24 to 35 percent. Student progress management and individualized instructional assignment provided further time savings. Reliability and maintainability data collected during the integrated system test indicated that the support functions, the media devices and courseware, and the computer hardware and software met or exceeded requirements. The lessons learned during course development were extrapolated to provide estimates of courseware development times that should be realizable in converting conventional group instruction to computer based instruction.
