Abstract:

The project, which seeks to develop a group-via-computer interrogation network, is progressing according to schedule and budget. Most of the first six months effort has been spent writing code. Hence, there is little of significance to report at this early stage of the project other than the usual descriptions of program structures and the minor problems of transient interest common to any computer system development. An early bare-bones version of the remote conferencing system has been implemented, which has minimal capabilities--remote respondents answering questionnaires. The required programs are being structured in modular form. The addition of new modules to be incorporated in the later program releases will permit more flexibility in the group-via-computer interaction.
