An auto-instructional program covering the content of the first week 27.5 hours of basic electronics as taught at the Air Defense School was prepared under Subtask TEXTRUCT II. Two separate evaluations of the program were undertaken by administering it to 39 students regularly scheduled to take basic electronics training. It was concluded that complete self-pacing yielded higher performance than limited self-pacing, but administrative and procedural differences in the two studies tended to confound the results. Finally, it was noted that low aptitude students did not achieve high levels of performance.
