Evaluation of Biomedical Computer-Assisted Instruction from a User/Institutional Viewpoint. Final Report.
Rubin, Martin L.; And Others
This study focuses on the experiences of eight biomedical institutions which have undertaken the development of computer assisted instruction (CAI) projects and answers specific questions about the utilization of CAI in these institutions. The study examines the CAI development projects from a number of perspectives including: (1) attributes of students who use or do not use CAI materials, (2) characteristics of faculty who participate in CAI development, (3) incentives utilized to stimulate faculty participation in CAI, (4) experience with transferring CAI systems to other educational environments, (5) effectiveness of various computer assisted instructional modes, and (6) impact of CAI on student achievement. Fourteen references are provided, as well as a list of contract personnel from the various biomedical institutions involved in the study, a sample survey form used to collect data, and a list of initializations and abbreviations used in the report.
