Evaluation and Comparison of Linear and Branching Delivery Systems.
NTIS: PB/85-149078 :102 pages
A series of linear programmmed instruction moduleswas developed in the general subject areas of blasting technology and explosives safety and electrical training. The programs (modules) were developed in the form of tape and slide plus workbook materials, while the branching format evolved from the Lincoln Terminal System from the Massachusetts Institute of Technology, through several other teaching machines and microcomputers, and finally settling on Radio Shack TRS-80 Microcomputer Models I and III. Initial validation figures indicate that essentially the same results are attained from both methods, with the most noticeable difference being an approximate 25% savings in study time with the branching modules.
