Programed instruction has existed in its present forms for approximately ten years. Three major approaches are the Adjunct Autoinstruction of Sidney L. Pressey, the Intrinsic Programing of Norman A. Crowder, and the Linear Programing of B. F. Skinner. Most current research is centering on linear programing. Results indicate that programed instruction is successful in some applications, but not the answer to all training problems. The future may see an integration of programed instruction and other training techniques within a systems approach to training and education. Author
