Abstract:

Individualized instruction presents problems in measurement which challenge the conventional measurement paradigms. Taking into consideration the problems of item variance characteristics of CAI idiosyncratic learning sequences, and lack of a model for effectiveness assessment, the paper reviews various measurement techniques used at the Florida State University CAI Center. The R and D strategies focus on two major goals measurement providing information on priorities for revision within the CAI course materials, and measurement speaking directly to the effectiveness of the instructional process. Measurement techniques are related to three levels of course characteristics microframe, concept segments within a CAI course, and course effectiveness models. Foreseeable future trends are briefly discussed. Author
