Abstract:

The objectives of this study were 1 to examine the literature to identify authoring aids for developing instructional materials and to indentify information clearing houses for existing instructional materials and 2 to develop a generalized, computer-based model of a self-paced instructional system that can be used to determine expected timesaving and costs of self-pacing as compared to conventional instruction. The purpose of Part 1, reported in Volume 1, was to examine the ISD concept as it relates to the authoring process and to identify and analyze tools and procedures which facilitate the ISD process. Findings of the study are 1 more applied but unevaluated documents are associated with the civilian environments 2 relatively equal numbers of applied and evaluated documents exist in both the civilian and military environments 3 a greater number of authoring aids tools, procedures, and methodologies tend to be produced by the civilian environment and 4 more procedures are available than either tools or methodologies. Approximately sixty authoring tools and procedures are arranged by ISD phase and step in an extensive, annotated bibliography. The ISD model used in this study was the Interservice Procedures for Instructional Systems Development IPISD Model. The results of Part 2, a computer-based model of self-paced instruction, are reported in Volume 2.
