Abstract:

An attempt is made to assay the economics of computer-administered instruction CAI versus traditionally administered instruction TAI in controlling the structure of the learners stimulus environment in teaching and training situations. There is a discussion of the need for a sound, objective economic appraisal of the value to society as a whole of increments in the breadth and depth of education in the population, and of the influence of varying rates with which these increments are brought about. The necessity for reliable, objective information concerning cost data is emphasized. Projected costeffectiveness comparisons based on the assumption of equal effectiveness for CAI and TAI are discussed for both civilian and military instruction. Author
