Learner Ability and Learner Control: A 10 Year Literature Review 1987-1997.
Schnackenberg, Heidi L.; Hilliard, Ann W.
This paper examines research studies of learner control in computer-based instruction (CBI) from 1987-1997. The review evaluates predictions and conclusions from previous literature reviews, in light of current research, and discusses the implications of recent findings for instructional development. Findings suggest that the positions that higher-ability students score higher under learner control and lower-ability students score higher under program control may no longer hold true in the current technological age.
