Abstract:

This handbook is designed to provide specific nontechnical guidance to those persons who want to know more about the procedures and techniques generally recognized as important in the development of self-instructional materials and programs. Emphasis is placed on program development rather than on equipment teaching machines. Following a general discussion of the self-instructional concept and the ways in which it differs from the more traditional forms of training are specific discussions of the various steps which should be followed in preparing self-instructional materials. Included are sections on 1 Statement of program objectives, 2 Analysis of the task, 3 The organization of materials, 4 The techniques used in frame development i.e., size of frame, selection of responses, use of cues, use of feedback, use of review and repetition, sequencing of frames, 5 Editing and tryout of program materials, and 6 Program revision and up-dating. Also included are discussions of the use of simulated job-operator equipment as an integral part of the self-instructional program and the implications that program presentation methods devices have on programming techniques.
