Abstract:

This handbook has been written for two applications first, as a resource and reference guide for Air Force instructional managers who are considering the adoption or expansion of computer-assisted instruction CAI at some future time and, second, as a decision aid for an instructional manager currently involved in the CAI decision process. The use of the handbook is appropriate for considering the implementation of CAI in a new course or in an existing course. Its contents are designed to be helpful where CAI systems are already available to the trainers, as well as in those cases in which the adoption of CAI requires new systems acquisition. A significant amount of knowledge about instruction and about Air Force instructional procedures and minimum experience with CAI are assumed. The workbook portion of the handbook presents specific tools, in the form of worksheets, for evaluating the need for CAI, for identifying configurations most closely matched to instructional needs and practices, and for estimating the feasibility of initiating CAI implementation.Author.
