Three problem selection strategies student selection, program selection weighted by past performance, and forced selection independent of student history were compared in a CAI course in computer programming. Various measures of aptitude, performance and attitude were examined. No consistent difference was observed among the three groups. The results are discussed in terms of the specific experiment and the general problem of curriculum design for comparing path selection strategies. Continuing experimentation is described. Author
