CAI training materials were prepared so that students took lessons on AC series circuit analysis alternatively in a student controlled and a program controlled mode. The performance of students taking each mode was compared to that of students taking the opposite mode. The effectiveness of remediation sequences which immediately followed individual lesson tests was also evaluated. Upon completion of training students were asked which training mode they preferred. They chose student controlled over program controlled training by a ratio of 41, in spite of there being no significant difference in performance in the two modes. The reaction is examined.
