Abstract:

The purpose of this study was to evaluate the effectiveness and efficiency of the PLATO 4 Plasma terminal from an instructional point of view. The instructional basis for this evaluation consisted of six mini-CAICMI programs developed by the instructional programming staff of the U.S. Army Computerized Training Systems Project, Fort Monmouth, N.J. The primary instructional device which conveyed these instructional materials consisted of four PLATO 4 terminals which are interfaced with the PLATO 4 Computer-based Educational System at the University of Illinois via telecommunication lines. The basic results indicated that while peer training achievement was equivalent to individual training achievement, peer training was conducted in significantly less time than individual training.
