The self-teaching text in map reading covers those skills needed by readers of military maps and map substitutes. It provides a foundation for personnel whose training program will require specialized or more advanced skills. Practical experience in the field with map and compass should supplement the text. The six parts of the text are meant to be studied sequentially. The six divisions are: symbols and marginal information, location, distance, direction, relief, and map supplements and...

An experiment was conducted to determine if the use of rules to guide revisions has generalizable effects across programs and programers. The hypothesis was that pupil achievement would be greater for instructional programs revised according to specified rules than for unrevised programs. Each of 10 programers produced a self-instructional sequence for fifth graders. The 50-frame programs including pretest and 10-item posttests were to take approximately one hour to complete. After each was...

A non-technical synthesis of the major developments in programed instruction serves as an introduction to the content of this paper. The paper includes some determination of the extent to which programed materials are being used by Federal agencies and how these uses compare with those found by Bryan and Nagay in an earlier study. The paper concludes with a chapter which gives guidelines to the trainer for the use and selection of programed materials. In appendices it lists programs in use by...

Based on the assumption that learning difficulty in programed instruction is related to completion time and program response error-rates, an attempt was made to demonstrate that deletion of knowledge of results (KR) and first example (E) in the Rule-Example-Positive/Negative Example teaching frame paradigm would increase learning difficulty. Four groups of 31 subsets each completed programs with the following designs: E and KR; E and no KR; KR and no E, and no E and no KR. Program response...

In today's complex computer-based teaching (CBT)/computer-assisted instruction market, flashy presentations frequently prove the most important purchasing element, while instructional design and content are secondary to form. Courseware purchasers must base decisions upon either a vendor's presentation or some published evaluator rating. Unfortunately, these are almost certain to be biased by irrelevant factors such as color graphics or presentation speed. The Center for Interactive...
