Abstract:

This study develops a computer assisted instruction response evaluation technique to aid CAI lesson writers in course development. The objectives for this technique was to experimentally identify principal incorrect response forms and determine characteristic error patterns for a given concept to be taught. Using a specific concept, the proposed technique was evaluated. Sixty-one subjects were randomly selected from three different universities and assigned to solve a problem-solving task. Using mental imagery and oral reporting, they produced the necessary protocol for this experiment. Although the response evaluation technique developed in this study was reasonably successful, a specific response error pattern for each subject could not be determined. Author
