Abstract:

An assessment of student achievement and of student and instructor attitudes during the period from January, 1975, to September 1975, was made by the U.S. Air Force Human Resources Laboratory AFHRL and the Air Training Command ATC as part of their jointly-conducted Service Test of the PLATO IV system at Chanute Air Force Base. Analyses of the achievement and attitude data were carried out by the Military Training Centers MTC and PLATO Educational Evaluation and Research PEER groups of CERL and will be reported as products of the AFHRLATC evaluation effort. It is the understanding of the MTC and PEER groups that the AFHRLATC reports will treat the instructional effectiveness and instructional impact results of the Service Test independently and, hence, will not attempt to relate achievement results to attitudes. We believe, however, that a complete examination of the achievement-attitude relationship will enhance the understanding of the outcomes of the Chanute Service Test and may lead to useful generalizations or hypotheses. We have planned, therefore, a series of additional analyses to relate attitudinal and achievement outcomes.
