The concept of an i n s t r u c t i o n a l l o g i c was defined as an algorithm followed by the computer program for each i n s t r u c t i o n a l unit. This step-by-step logic was repeated for each i n s t r u c t i o n a l unit but with d i f f e r e n t content. This procedure permitted the c o n t r o l l e d manipulation » of the variable of correctional feedback. Thiee forms of co r r e c t i o n a l feedback were defined by varying the information content of the feedback. These were response-sensi t i v e c o r r e c t i o n a l feedback, response-insensitive c o r r e c t i o n a l .feedback and no correctional feedback (only that the answer was i n c o r r e c t ) . The i n t e r a c t i o n of c o r r e c t i o n a l feedback with selected learner c h a r a c t e r i s t i c s was examined as ' v ^ l l , These learner t r a i t s were mathematical a b i l i t y , p rerequisite knowledge i i i and state anxiety. The e f f e c t of c o r r e c t i o n a l feedback and i t s i n t e r a c t i o n with these variables was examined. Subjects of the study were a representative sample of sixty-three preservice elementary school teachers from f i v e sections of a mathematics course given i n a large education f a c u l t y . These subjects were randomly assigned to the three treatment conditions, although they selected the CAI experimental periods i n which they would p a r t i c i p a t e . The test of mathematical a b i l i t y used was the Cooperative Sequential Test of Educational Progress, Mathematics Form 2A (STEP). The state anxiety instrument used was the State-Trait Anxiety Inventory (STAI) and the f i v e iteir short form used by O'Neil (1972) was administered twice. The eighteen item posttest was constructed by the experimenter and the measure of pr e r e q u i s i t e knowledge used was a nine item prelesson with a possible mark of 0, I or 2 on each item. The mathematics lesson was a topic i n introductory calculus dealing with the concept of d e r i v a t i v e . The topic was treated from a physical point of view, using concepts of distance, speed and time to i l l u s t r a t e the mathematical concepts. The main objectives were to show that the derivative i s a l i m i t and to show how to use t h i s l i m i t d e f i n i t i o n to c a l c u l a t e the derivative of a function at a point. i v The CAI lesson was programmed using an author language developed by the experimenter as a vehicle for implementing the i n s t r u c t i o n a l logic and varying the c o r r e c t i o n a l feedback. The language i s l i m i t e d in use but has the advantage of requiring e s s e n t i a l l y no computer experience of an i n s t r u c t i o n a l designer. The main l i m i t a t i o n of the language as implemented at the University of B r i t i s h Columbia i s the cost, which li m i t e d the sample size i n this experiment. The r e s u l t s of the study were generally i n the expected d i r e c t i o n but the e f f e c t s were not as pronounced as had been hypothesized. The most important f i n d i n g was the s i g n i f i c a n t difference i n proportion of errors on the main lesson between the response-insensitive {T^) and no co r r e c t i o n a l feedback ( T 3 ) groups. The importance of t h i s f i n d i n g was then increased by the s i g n i f i c a n t r e l a t i o n s h i p found between immediate learning and proportion of errors with the e f f e c t of learner t r a i t s and treatment e f f e c t s s t a t i s t i c a l l y removed. The most e f f e c t i v e variable i n p r e d i c t i n g performance i n the experiment was mathematical a b i l i t y and i t s e f f e c t was s t a t i s t i c a l l y c o n t r o l l e d when te^tina the e f f e c t of the other variables. p r e r e q u i s i t e knowledge was alsc important i n p redicting performance and was s t a t i s t i c a l l y c o n t r o l l e d as well. State anxiety was s i g n i f i c a n t i n pr e d i c t i n g V proportion of errors but not response latency. However, s i g n i f i c a n t treatment-by-A-State interactions were observed for posttest and for response latency. The three treatment groups d i f f e r e d i n the expected d i r e c t i o n on most of the important variables but the differences were not s t a t i s t i c a l l y s i g n i f i c a n t . In p a r t i c u l a r , the A-State l e v e l s for the three groups were ordered as expected, but the differences were not large enough to cause the hypothesized i n t e r a c t i o n s . The r e s u l t s of the study p a r t i a l l y supported the hypothesis of the important role of c o r r e c t i o n a l feedback in i n s t r u c t i o n and i t s i n t e r a c t i o n with in d i v i d u a l t r a i t s of the learner. F i n a l l y , the variable of state anxiety was examined and i t was found that higher l e v e l s of state anxiety led to longer response latencies. Also, state anxiety increased when no cor r e c t i o n a l feedback was provided to the students as well as when the content became more d i f f i c u l t . This f i n d i n g confirmed the expected r e l a t i o n s h i p between state anxiety and task d i f f i c u l t y .

This methodology was developed i n the context of the computer acting as personal tutor for in d i v i d u a l students. By using the computer i n t h i s manner, a laboratory to study i n s t r u c t i o n was created. This laboratory permitted the gathering of r e l i a b l e and v a l i d data under c a r e f u l l y c o n t r o l l e d and r e p l i c a b l e conditions, using materials having some educational s i g n i f i c a n c e to the students. The major goal of t h i s study was to apply the methodology to a research study which would make a contribution to the area of i n s t r u c t i o n a l theory. A' p a r t i c u l a r l y controversial problem was examined: the role of c o r r e c t i o n a l feedback i n the i n s t r u c t i o n a l process. Several steps were involved i n the attainment of these two goals. F i r s t , the methodology was developed. A computer language was written by the experimenter to 2 implement a p a r t i c u l a r i n s t r u c t i o n a l logic which permitted lessons to be programmed for the computer by novice computer users. The language implemented a p a r t i c u l a r l y f l e x i b l e teaching logic which was followed by the computer many times during an i n s t r u c t i o n a l session. The second step involved the development of a teaching unit (lesson) dealing with a topic i n elementary calculus. This unit i s presently being used i n an alte r e d form as a t u t o r i a l a i d by college students i n an introductory physics course (Kalman et. a l . , 1972). The t h i r d step consisted of developing an organizational scheme for studying the i n s t r u c t i o n a l process using the above methodology. Several variables i n the organizational scheme were examined. These variables r e f l e c t e d some unresolved nroblems i n the l i t e r a t u r e on i n s t r u c t i o n . The e f f e c t of c o r r e c t i o n a l feedback on learning was assessed by manipulating this v a r i a b l e i n a controlled experiment. The i n t e r a c t i o n of c o r r e c t i o n a l feedback and selected learner c h a r a c t e r i s t i c s v/as also examined. The use of the computer permitted the variable of c o r r e c t i o n a l feedback to be examined under c o n t r o l l e d conditions and provided data to c l a r i f y the e f f e c t s of t h i s variable on learning. 3 Although the experiment focused on a p a r t i c u l a r aspect of the i n s t r u c t i o n a l process, the methodology that was developed could be used by others to examine other variables of i n t e r e s t i n the organizational scheme. Introduction to CAI The term computer-assisted i n s t r u c t i o n (CAI) describes an i n s t r u c t i o n a l s i t u a t i o n where a student works at a terminal connected e l e c t r o n i c a l l y to a computer. An i n s t r u c t i o n a l program i s stored i n the computer. The program comprises the complete package of information, instructions and l o g i c with which the student w i l l i n t e r a c t during his learning session. The terminal, which serves as the interface between the computer and the student, usually consists of a typewriter keyboard and either a paper r o l l of TV-like screen, c a l l e d a cathode-ray tube, upon which the communications to and from the computer are displayed. In order to have CAI, the computer must act u a l l y i n s t r u c t the student through the program and net just be used as a tool to a s s i s t i n the solut i o n of problems or the r e t r i e v a l of information. By d e f i n i t i o n , there must be two-way human-to-computer communication i n which there occurs a stimuxus-response-feedback r e l a t i o n s h i p producing learning (Silvern, 1967). 4 Atkinson (1968a) commented that i n recent years a great number of a r t i c l e s and news releases dealing with CAI has been published. He observed that few of such reports are based on substantial experience and research, but that the majority consist of vague speculations and conjectures with l i t t l e , i f any, data or r e a l experience to substantiate the claims for CAI. Bundy (1967) noted that, with few exceptions, a v a i l a b l e information about CAI consists of descriptive accounts of what a p a r t i c u l a r i n s t i t u t i o n i s doing, or short statements of research f i n d i n g s . He also noted that CAI has not reached the kind of maturity that programmed learning has attained as an area of endeavor. Some recent CAI work in the l a s t two years indicates that t h i s s i t u a t i o n i s changing (e.g. Judd et a l . , 1973; Keats and Hansen, 1972; O'Neil, 1972b; Tobias, 1973). Suppes (1966) distinguished three lev e l s of i n t e r a c t i o n between the student and the computer program. At the most s u p e r f i c i a l , and also the most economical l e v e l , are d r i l l - a n d - p r a c t i c e systems. At. t h i s l e v e l , the student i s presented with examples on which he needs prac t i c e , and d r i l l e d on those to which he f a i l s to respond c o r r e c t l y (Suydam, 1969). Instructional programs that f a l l under t h i s heading are merely supplements to a regular curriculum taught by a teacher. The next l e v e l of i n t e r a c t i o n includes t u t o r i a l systems which are more complex than dri11-and-practice systems. The computer-teacher i n i t i a t e s the question, f o r which answers are stored i n advance and a r e s t r i c t e d kind of dialogue between the student and the computer i s achieved. Suppes (1966) claims that the aim here i s to i n d i v i d u a l i z e i n s t r u c t i o n and to free the teacher from many classroom r e s p o n s i b i l i t i e s so that he w i l l have more time to i n d i v i d u a l i z e his own i n s t r u c t i o n a l e f f o r t s . At the t h i r d and deepest l e v e l of student-computer i n t e r a c t i o n are systems that allow a complex dialogue between the student and the computer (Suppes, 1966). Dialogue systems exist only as rudimentary prototypes. Before t h i s l e v e l of i n t e r a c t i o n can be achieved, the computer w i l l require the c a p a b i l i t y of in t e r p r e t i n g any response and question given by the student, either i n writing or o r a l l y . A search of the l i t e r a t u r e indicated that there are three major arguments used in support of CAI. These are not independent cf one another, but they do serve to indicate the major views of CAI which are currently prevalent.' The f i r s t argument i n support of CAI i s that 6 CAI i s a medium used to i n d i v i d u a l i z e i n s t r u c t i o n . Suppes (1966) claimed that this i s the single most important a p p l i c a t i o n of CAI. He wrote that the p r i n c i p a l obstacles to widespread implementation of CAI are not technological but pedagogical: how to devise means of i n d i v i d u a l i z i n g i n s t r u c t i o n and how to design a curriculum that i s suited to i n d i v i d u a l s instead of groups. Many researchers (Atkinson, 1968b; Bundy, 1967; Seidel, 1969; Stolurow, 1962) have claimed that a second ap p l i c a t i o n of CAI provides the most valuable contribution to education. These writers refer to the use of CAI as a laboratory for research i n learning and i n s t r u c t i o n . With the computer, i t i s possible to be quite e x p l i c i t about a teaching method and to reproduce the conditions as often as desired. Added to t h i s i s the c a p a b i l i t y of the computer f o r stori n g and manipulating data. The data can be used by the researcher to modify the presentation i n progress and the data can be manipulated l a t e r i n many d i f f e r e n t ways to provide information about the i n s t r u c t i o n a l variables under study. Variables such as errors i n learning, response latency and effectiveness of diagnostic materials can be examined i n d e t a i l . Stolurow (1962) and Atkinson (1968c) predicted that the computer w i l l contribute to the emergence of one or more theories of i n s t r u c t i o n supported by r e l i a b l e and v a l i d data. A t h i r d argument used to support CAI i s that i t i s a medium which can change the r o l e of the teacher and the school environment. Computers have been used to a l i m i t e d extent for d i r e c t i n s t r u c t i o n i n a few selected schools i n the United States of America (Atkinson, 1968d; Pressman, 1970; Suppes, 1966). S t a n s f i e l d (1968) cautioned that CAI i s not ready for the schools and that the schools are not ready for CAI. Hicks and Hunka (1972) made the following assumptions about CAI: Assumption I. Computer-assisted i n s t r u c t i o n w i l l surely come into general use in the schools probably within the next decade, and possibly before either the schools or manufacturers of CAI systems can ensure i t s wise use (1972, p. 69). Assumption III. Computer-assisted i n s t r u c t i o n i s capable of becoming a widely used, v e r s a t i l e and e f f e c t i v e educational t o o l , but i t must overcome many handicaps impeding i t s development (1972, p. 23). 3efore this a p p l i c a t i o n of CAI becomes widespread, f a c t o r s such as cost-effectiveness and acceptance of CAT by school personnel remain to be solved. Organizational Scheme for CAI i n This author has proposed an organizational scheme Figure 1 for research into a p a r t i c u l a r area, of CA T. The scheme assumes that the important r o l e of CAI at the present time i s that of an i n s t r u c t i o n a l laboratory, although questions r e l a t i n g to i n d i v i d u a l i z i n g i n s t r u c t i o n may also a r i s e from the model. LEARNER -cognitive variables -personality variables -psychomotor variables CAI LESSON •instructional variables -machine variables -nature of d i s c i p l i n e OUTPUT -process variables -product variables Figure 1 Organizational Scheme for Research Into CAI as an Instructional Laboratory The organizational scheme shown in Figure 1 suggests that a learner i n t e r a c t s with a CAI lesson and ex h i b i t s behaviour which i s observable and from which one can make inferences about his learning. The basic assumption underlying the l u o d e l i s that c e r t a i n learner variables and c e r t a i n CAI lesson variable? w i l l i n t e r a c t to produce d i f f e r e n t i a l e f f e c t s on the output variables. Learner variables have also been c a l l e d personological variables (Bracht, 1970) and these may be considered as measures of i n d i v i d u a l student c h a r a c t e r i s t i c s . Cognitive variables can be considered as general or s p e c i f i c i n t e l l e c t u a l a b i l i t i e s of the learner. Examples of cognitive variables are IQ, mathematical a b i l i t y and p r e r e q u i s i t e knowledge. Personality variables r e f e r to variables such as attitudes, anxiety or motivation. Psychomotor variables refer to the manipulative or m o t o r - s k i l l area, e.g., typing speed and accuracy. A CAI Lesson comprises three d i s c e r n i b l e variables. The i n s t r u c t i o n a l variables refer to those variables which characterize the i n s t r u c t i o n a l strategy, not the content, and these can be manipulated by the i n s t r u c t i o n a l programmer. Examples of i n s t r u c t i o n a l variables are step s i z e , type or frequency of feedback and type of branching. The machine variables r e f e r to both hardware and software variables which a f f e c t the CAI lesson. Hardware variables involve c h a r a c t e r i s t i c s of the computer terminal used, typing rate for example. Software variables are c h a r a c t e r i s t i c s of the CAI author (programming) language used to write the lesson, branching c a p a b i l i t i e s for example. Rogers (1966) cautioned that these computer c h a r a c t e r i s t i c s can impose severe l i m i t a t i o n s upon both the materials which can be presented to the learner and the responses which the learner can be required and allowed to make. The f i n a l dimension of the CAI lesson refers to the nature of the subject being.taught. Hicks and Hunka (1972) suggested some subject matter d i s t i n c t i o n s : loosely structured versus highly structured, e x p e r i e n t i a l versus r a t i o n a l , value-laden versus neutral. Suppes (1966) remarked that well-structured subjects such as reading and mathematics can e a s i l y be handled by t u t o r i a l as well as by d r i l l - a n d - p r a c t i c e systems. The output variables represent observable behaviors exhibited by the learner and from which learning may be i n f e r r e d . These can be considered as either process or product variables. Process variables, such as the number or type of errors made during learning and response latency, give an i n d i c a t i o n of the student's performance during the lesson. These may be considered as representing either accuracy (errors) cr e f f i c i e n c y (latency) cf the student's learning process. Product variables, such as immediate learning, retention, transfer and attitudes, are the r e s u l t of what the student has gained from the completed CAI lesson. 11 Discussion of the Problem The present study made use of the organizational scheme described e a r l i e r to examine the e f f e c t on the output variables of learner variables, CAI lesson variables and their i n t e r a c t i o n . The r e l a t i o n s h i p between the process and product variables at the output of the model was also examined. In the CAI lesson component of the model, i n s t r u c t i o n a l variables were under consideration and three d i f f e r e n t i n s t r u c t i o n a l strategies were examined. Stolurow (1969) explained that strategy can be thought of as a set of rules and the f i r s t task of the teacher or educational theorist i s to reduce the strategy to an e x p l i c i t algorithm so that i t can be programmed for implementation by a CAI system. Sherman (1971) pointed out that most of the time required to construct conversational exchanges between student and the computer i s taken up by two tasks: designing the i n s t r u c t i o n a l logic and programming the conversational network. He suggested that by u t i l i z i n g a s p e c i f i c predetermined i n s t r u c t i o n a l strategy, which he c a l l e d a template, the time spent on the second task could be reduced s u b s t a n t i a l l y . The reason for t h i s i s that the template, which may be compared to a standard subroutine or 12 procedure i n computational programs, allows the lesson designer to merely supply the content and not the l o g i c elements to the CAI lesson. A lesson consists of a p a r t i c u l a r inter-connection of one or more of these templates. Two templates were designed and implemented for t h i s study: one f o r the main lesson and one for the prelesson. These templates are discussed i n Chapter I I I . The three i n s t r u c t i o n a l strategies considered i n this study were three variations of the template designed for the main lesson. The variable which distinguished these strategies from one another was the extent of knowledge of r e s u l t s or, more s p e c i f i c a l l y , the c o r r e c t i o n a l feedback given to the student after each incorrect response. The c o r r e c t i o n a l feedback given i n the f i r s t i n s t r u c t i o n a l strategy was characterized as response-sensitive, i . e . , c o r r e c t i o n a l feedback given to the student was appropriate to the type of error that he made i n his response. The second strategy was response-insensitive, i . e . , the corr e c t i o n a l feedback given consisted of a hint which was constant regardless of the nature of the error made on that response. The f i n a l strategy involved informing the student whether his response was correct or not, but no c o r r e c t i o n a l feedback cr hint was given. The t h i r d strategy served as a control condition since no 13 assistance was provided to the student when he responded i n c o r r e c t l y . Suppes (1966, 1967) concluded that there i s c o n f l i c t i n g evidence regarding the e f f e c t s of immediately informing the student each time he makes a mistake. He stated that a ce n t r a l weakness of t r a d i t i o n a l psychological theories of reinforcement i s that too much of.the theory has been tested by experiments i n which the content of the information transmitted i n the feedback procedure i s e s s e n t i a l l y very simple. As a r e s u l t , the information content of feedback has not been s u f f i c i e n t l y emphasized in t h e o r e t i c a l discussions. Many i n s t r u c t i o n a l systems or theories contain knowledge of r e s u l t s as a major component although the precise roles of thi s variable are unclear. Stolurow (1969) and M o r r i l l (1961) noted that although knowledge of r e s u l t s appears to be e f f e c t i v e i n the learning process, t h i s problem contains many facets which need empirical study. Along these l i n e s , Gilman (1967) wrote that his r e s u l t s suggest that less elaborate c o r r e c t i o n a l feedback procedures are as e f f e c t i v e as the more elaborate prompting, response-contingent feedback, and overt-correct i o n procedures. He suggested that his re s u l t s should be checked with other subject matters and other students to e s t a b l i s h their degree of generality. The present study examined the knowledge-of-results variable under con t r o l l e d conditions made possible by the use of CAI and provided empirical data to c l a r i f y the e f f e c t of this variable. Suppes (1967) pointed out that a troublesome issue has arisen i n recent research. Should d i f f e r e n t kinds of reinforcement, of which knowledge-of-results may be one kind, and d i f f e r e n t sorts of reinforcement schedules be given to children with d i f f e r e n t p e r s o n a l i t i e s ? This issue r e l a t e s to the problem of i n d i v i d u a l i z i n g i n s t r u c t i o n . Bracht (1970) suggested that i t i s possible that no sing l e i n s t r u c t i o n a l process provides optimal learning p o s s i b i l i t i e s f o r a l l students. However, Bundy (1967) pointed out that to date we s t i l l do not understand the learning process s u f f i c i e n t l y to make t r u l y self-adaptive learning programs. Bundy (1967) stated that we might be able to make self-adaptive learning programs i n the future and the vehicle for accomplishing this may wall be CAI, viewed not as an i n s t r u c t i o n a l t o o l , but as an i n s t r u c t i o n a l laboratory. The present study contributed to an understanding of the i n s t r u c t i o n a l process by examining aptitude - treatment interactions (ATI). The goal of research on ATI i s to f i n d s i g n i f i c a n t i n t e r a c t i o n s between a l t e r n a t i v e treatments and i n d i v i d u a l c h a r a c t e r i s t i c s of the learner (Bracht, 1970). Subsequently, a l t e r n a t i v e i n s t r u c t i o n a l programs may be developed so that optimal educational benefits are obtained when students are assigned to the a l t e r n a t i v e programs. Gentile (1967) emphasized that i f i t i s claimed that adapting to i n d i v i d u a l differences through CAI would improve some aspect of learning, then parametric studies of variables considered to be important should be undertaken. He found that these parametric studies are scarce because almost a l l of the funds a l l o t t e d to CAI projects are being spent on the development of courses or equipment to the exclusion of research on teaching-learning variables, where research i s needed most. Dick (1965) noted that the matter of personality-computer i n t e r a c t i o n remains to be studied. This d i s s e r t a t i o n study focused on the i n s t r u c t i o n a l variables i n the CAI lesson and their i n t e r a c t i o n with selected c h a r a c t e r i s t i c s of i n d i v i d u a l learners. The learner c h a r a c t e r i s t i c s examined i n t h i s study f e l l into two of the three categories i n the model, cognitive and personality. Psychomotor variables were not considered. The cognitive variables were mathematical a b i l i t y and prerequisites required f o r the main lesson. These cognitive variables ranged from general to s p e c i f i c in terms of their r e l a t i o n s h i p to the content and s k i l l s required for the CAI lesson. The personality variable under consideration was anxiety. O'Neil e_t al_. (1969a,b; 1972a,b) and Spielberger (1972) examined the e f f e c t of anxiety i n a CAI context and found s i g n i f i c a n t e f f e c t s on student performance. They found a d i s o r d i n a l i n t e r a c t i o n between state anxiety and d i f f i c u l t y of the material presented i n the CAI lesson. O'Neil (1972a) pointed out that some studies i n the l i t e r a t u r e have suggested that the r e l a t i o n s h i p between anxiety and learning i s d i f f e r e n t f o r men and women. This issue was not considered i n thi s study but a representative sample of students was employed to increase the g e n e r a l i z a b i l i t y of the r e s u l t s . The r e l a t i o n s h i p between the process and product var i a b l e s i s important. If a well-defined r e l a t i o n s h i p e x i s t s , then process variables such as errors or latencies may be u t i l i z e d to make decisions during learning i n order to maximize the product variables of learning. This l a t t e r question was. also examined i n the present study. The questions under consideration i n this study appear to be important t h e o r e t i c a l issues. An important p r a c t i c a l reason e x i s t s as well for examining the i n s t r u c t i o n a l variable of c o r r e c t i o n a l feedback. The issue i s a cost-effectiveness one. Rogers (1968) estimated that approximately 100 hours of analysis, programming and e d i t i n g e f f o r t s are required to produce programmed i n s t r u c t i o n a l (PI) material which occupies the student for one hour. He estimated that one or two orders of magnitude separate the CAI lesson from the PI lesson i n terms of the time required f o r production of a lesson. A major portion of the time required i n developing a CAI t u t o r i a l lesson i s spent i n a n t i c i p a t i n g a l l possible student responses and providing response-sensi t i v e c o r r e c t i o n a l feedback. The computer software required becomes more complex and computer execution time, and cost, increase i f t h i s response-sensitive c o r r e c t i o n a l feedback i s implemented. If t h i s i n s t r u c t i o n a l variable or i t s i n t e r a c t i o n with learner c h a r a c t e r i s t i c s has no e f f e c t on the output variables i n the model, then the time, e f f o r t and extra cost required to include t h i s feature i n the CAI lesson are being poorly spent. Bracht (1970) advised that experimenters should begin to formulate hypotheses about ATI with administrative f a c t o r s , such as cost, i n mind. The r e s u l t s of t h i s study have cost-effectivenes.s implications because the costs f o r providing the three types of feedback range from expensive to inexpensive. Statement of the Problem The s p e c i f i c tasks proposed for t h i s d i s s e r t a t i o n were: 1. Development of an organizational scheme fo r research into CAI as an i n s t r u c t i o n a l laboratory. 2. Design and implementation of an empirical study to examine several variables i n the organizational scheme. The i n s t r u c t i o n a l variable under consideration was c o r r e c t i o n a l feedback. Its i n t e r a c t i o n with the learner variables of anxiety, p r e r e q u i s i t e knowledge and mathematical a b i l i t y was examined. 3 . Development of a CAI author language permitting a high degree of response-sensitive feedback to be supplied to the student. This language served as a vehicle for the study and implemented a p a r t i c u l a r i n s t r u c t i o n a l l o g i c , permitting data regarding the student's performance tc be recorded for subsequent analysis. 4. Development of a CAI module dealing with some 19 elementary calculus concepts and programmed using the above-mentioned author language. The module included a CAI prelesson dealing with the prerequisites i d e n t i f i e d f o r the main lesson. Research Questions The several terms which were used in the following research questions are explained below. • The learning process variables were proportion of errors, i . e . t o t a l errors divided by t o t a l responses, and average response latency. The learning product variable was immediate learning, as measured by a posttest. Because of the nature of the i n s t r u c t i o n a l l o g i c used i n t h i s study, i t was f e l t that proportion of errors would r e f l e c t performance better than t o t a l errors. The reason f o r not using t o t a l errors was that two errors of the same type would cause the computer to produce the correct answer and would end that i n s t r u c t i o n a l unit. Therefore, a student who immediately made two similar errors i n a row would terminate that i n s t r u c t i o n a l unit without being seriously penalized, even though he had not produced the correct response. The use of proportion of errors corrected this s i t u a t i o n . The average latency variable was obtained by c a l c u l a t i n g the average of the t o t a l response latencies for a l l i n s t r u c t i o n a l u n i t s . It was f e l t that t o t a l latency on an i n s t r u c t i o n a l unit would better r e f l e c t performance than the latency f o r the f i r s t response on that unit. The reason for t h i s i s that t o t a l latency r e f l e c t e d the eff e c t of the c o r r e c t i o n a l feedback given during that unit. The research questions were: 1. What i s the e f f e c t of c o r r e c t i o n a l feedback on the learning process and product? 2. What i s the e f f e c t of cor r e c t i o n a l feedback on the learning process for students with d i f f e r e n t l e v e l s of anxiety? 3. What i s the e f f e c t of c o r r e c t i o n a l feedback on the learning process and product f o r students with d i f f e r e n t levels of prerequisite s k i l l s ? 4 . What i s the e f f e c t of c o r r e c t i o n a l feedback on the learning process and product for students with d i f f e r e n t l e v e l s of mathematical a b i l i t y ? 5. What i s the r e l a t i o n s h i p between the learning process variables and the product variables, independent of the e f f e c t of che other variables, i . e . anxiety, prere q u i s i t e knowledge, mathematical a b i l i t y and treatment? 21 Importance of the Study This study was important because of i t s contribution to several d i f f e r e n t areas of knowledge. The use of CAI as a laboratory to study the i n s t r u c t i o n a l process has been discussed. An organizational scheme f o r CAI as an i n s t r u c t i o n a l laboratory has been developed and several aspects of the model are under consideration. Some empirical evidence was provided regarding the e f f e c t s of c o r r e c t i o n a l feedback on learning under c a r e f u l l y c o n t r o l l e d conditions made possible by the use of CAI. Higgins (1973) suggested that one of the variables with greatest potential for contributing to the design of e f f e c t i v e i n s t r u c t i o n i s the amount of information contained i n the feedback stimulus. The r e s o l u t i o n of t h i s controversial issue has t h e o r e t i c a l s i g n i f i c a n c e f o r i n s t r u c t i o n a l theory, p r a c t i c a l s i g n i f i c a n c e f o r classroom i n s t r u c t i o n and implications f o r subsequent development of CAI software and lessons. The area of i n d i v i d u a l i z e d i n s t r u c t i o n i s currently receiving much attention from educators. A pressing need e x i s t s to devote more research a c t i v i t y to the study of i n t e r a c t i o n between the conditions of i n s t r u c t i o n and the nature of the learner (Sutter and Reid. 1969). This study examined several learner variables and their i n t e r a c t i o n with the d i f f e r e n t i n s t r u c t i o n a l strategies. The r e s u l t s would have implications for i n d i v i d u a l i z e d i n s t r u c t i o n 2 2 since the presence of s i g n i f i c a n t d i s o r d i n a l i n t e r a c t i o n s makes the assignment of i n d i v i d u a l s to d i f f e r e n t i n s t r u c t i o n a l treatments desirable i n order to produce optimal learning for i n d i v i d u a l learners. The variable of anxiety i s currently receiving much attention i n the l i t e r a t u r e and empirical evidence i s required to further develop the State-Trait Anxiety Theory (Spielberger, 1971). This study also contributed to t h i s area by c l a r i f y i n g some of the e f f e c t s of anxiety on learning. The r e l a t i o n s h i p between the process variables, such as errors during learning and response latency, and the product variables, such as immediate learning, i s important because of the p o s s i b i l i t y of using the learning process variables to optimize the learning product for i n d i v i d u a l s . This optimization could be accomplished by basing i n s t r u c t i o n a l decisions on these process variables during learning. An important contribution was the development of a methodology which implemented the concept of CAI as a laboratory to 9 t u d y learning and i n s t r u c t i o n , The methodology used i n t h i s study may be u t i l i z e d by others or may serve <? s a model f o r other researchers to follow i n the development of new methods of applying the computer to the s o l u t i o n of educational problems. CHAPTER II REVIEW OF RELATED LITERATURE AND RESEARCH HYPOTHESES Introduc tion This chapter contains a survey of the l i t e r a t u r e r e l a t e d to the areas under consideration i n t h i s study. The topics included are: Knowledge-of-Results, St a t e - T r a i t Anxiety, Aptitude-Treatment Interactions and T u t o r i a l CAI. L i t e r a t u r e on Knowledge of Results Annett (1964, p.280) defined knowledge-of-results as " . . . knowledge which an i n d i v i d u a l or group receives r e l a t i n g to the outcome of a response or group of responses.' Higgins (1972) categorized feedback into three common forms that provide d i f f e r e n t amounts of information. The three forms were knowledge-of-results (KR), knowledge-of-correct-response (KCR) and i n s t r u c t i o n a l feedback. Knowledge-of-results, the form containing the. least information, indicates only whether a response i s correct or i n c o r r e c t . If the response i s incorrect, knowledge-of-r e s u l t s does not indicate what the correct response i s . Knowledge-of-correct-response d i f f e r s from knowledge-of-r e s u l t s i n that knowledge-of- correct-response always 24 indicates the correct response. I n s t r u c t i o n a l feedback, the form containing the most information, indicates the correct response and provides an explanation of why that response i s correct. Higgins (1972) wrote that i t appears from the research l i t e r a t u r e that p o t e n t i a l contributions to the design of e f f e c t i v e i n s t r u c t i o n can be generated by research e f f o r t s contrasting the e f f e c t s of various combinations of the above forms of feedback. Higgins (1972) pointed out that one factor influencing the effectiveness of feedback i s the nature of the learner. S p e c i f i c a l l y , i t appears that feedback i s more e f f e c t i v e when the learner possesses a low l e v e l of competence with regard to the i n s t r u c t i o n a l task. Annett (1964) observed that probably the biggest issue i n the area of feedback i s that of motivation versus information. He concluded from his study of the area that the information content rather than the motivation content of feedback i s important to learning while motivation content of feedback i s an important variable i n performance. However, i n his recent book (1969, p.169), Annett wrote: . . . to say that knowledge-of-results provides motivation i s misleading. The so-called incentive function of knowledge-of-results seems to involve both providing the subject with a performance standard to aim f o r and information necessary for corrective action. Annett (1964) concluded that none of the generalizations which have been made i n the past about knowledge-of-r e s u l t s can be accepted at face value. Annett (1969) reviewed the psychological l i t e r a t u r e i n the area of feedback. He concluded that the role of r e s u l t s or consequences i n behaviour seems to have been underrated. He thought of knowledge-of-results as the manipulation of an external feedback loop r e l a t i n g to c e r t a i n aspects of a subject's performance. M o r r i l l (1961) reached e s s e n t i a l l y the same conclusion as Annett when he stated: Because of t h e i r controvertible r e s u l t s , the above studies demonstrate that, although immediate feedback appears to be'effective in the learning process, t h i s problem contains many facets which need more empirical, data. Higgins (1972) pointed out that the research most frequently c i t e d i n describing the r o l e of feedback i n i n s t r u c t i o n has come from three sources of experimentation: laboratory studies of human learning, studies employing e x i s t i n g conventional i n s t r u c t i o n a l materials which i n their o r i g i n a l form do not require overt learner response, and investigations with programmed i n s t r u c t i o n a l materials. Most research from the f i r s t two sources has very l i m i t e d a p p l i c a b i l i t y tc the design of i n s t r u c t i o n a l materials because of the difference between the materials and procedures employed i n these studies and those used i n systematically designed i n s t r u c t i o n , such as i n the present study. Higgins (1972) pointed out that i n most laboratory studies of human learning, the learner receives no i n s t r u c t i o n before being asked to respond. He stated that t h i s procedure i s i n e f f e c t i v e i n s t r u c t i o n a l l y when contrasted with procedures i n which the learner receives i n i t i a l i n s t r u c t i o n designed to enable him to respond c o r r e c t l y . Higgins (1972) f e e l s that the l i m i t e d a p p l i c a b i l i t y to i n s t r u c t i o n a l design of laboratory studies and of inv e s t i g a t i o n s involving conventional materials leaves the studies using programmed i n s t r u c t i o n a l materials as the basis f o r useful research up to this point i n time. Obviously, studies u t i l i z i n g CAI f a l l into t h i s category and may a c t u a l l y provide stronger evidence due to increased control of extraneous varia b l e s . The variable of i n s t r u c t i o n a l feedback i s an important component of most i n s t r u c t i o n a l models (Stolurow, 1971; M e r r i l l , 1971). Stolurow (1971) defined three c r i t i c a l system functions i n his i n s t r u c t i o n a l approach: a. The cue function provided by the program of in s t r u c t i o n , i . e . the stimulus to which each c r i t e r i o n response i s attached; b. the motivation function, i . e . e l i c i t i n g the desired performance; and c. the feedback function, i . e . providing immediate knowledge-of-results. Knowledge-of-results or feedback i s defined as one of Stolurow's ten c r i t i c a l requirements of a teaching machine. . Stolurow described his conception of knowledge-of-results i n a teaching program. I f the learner selects the correct a l t e r n a t i v e among a preprogrammed set of choices, he i s tol d that he was correct and given a d d i t i o n a l information. If he sel e c t s an incorrect a l t e r n a t i v e , he i s t o l d that he i s i n c o r r e c t , the computer provides c o r r e c t i v e and supplementary information, and he then makes another choice. This process continues u n t i l the correct choice has been made or u n t i l the computer provides the correct answer. Feedback implemented by the program in this way i s thus s e n s i t i v e to i n d i v i d u a l differences i n lea.rning. Stolurow claimed that t h i s type of feedback i s often preferred ever the simple right/wrong feedback when the implementation of the respective functions takes the same amount of time. Otherwise, an immediate right/wrong feedback i s preferred. This study examined t h i s claim from a cost-benefit viewpoint, i . e . the corrective feedback function which provides information may be superior to simple right/wrong feedback, 28 even when the former i s more expensive and d i f f i c u l t to implement i f t h i s feedback s i g n i f i c a n t l y improves student learning. Geis and Chapman (1971) noted that knowledge-of-re s u l t s i s the most frequently c i t e d r e i n f o r c e r i n the l i t e r a t u r e on s e l f - i n s t r u c t i o n a l systems, e s p e c i a l l y programmed i n s t r u c t i o n . They found that most studies are not d i r e c t l y aimed at investigating whether or not answers are r e i n f o r c e r s . The question usually being attached i s a broader one. Does feedback i n some way a f f e c t performance during and a f t e r programmed s e l f - i n s t r u c t i o n ? Geis and Chapman (1971) reviewed the l i t e r a t u r e i n t h i s area and r e s t r i c t e d themselves to s e l f - i n s t r u c t i o n a l s i t u a t i o n s . The authors cautioned that research using other than s e l f - i n s t r u c t i o n a l materials d i f f e r so much from s e l f - i n s c r u c t i o n that extrapolation i s u n j u s t i f i e d . In an i n v e s t i g a t i o n of the r e l a t i o n s h i p between test anxiety and feedback i n programmed i n s t r u c t i o n , Campeau (1968) found that feedback was a s i g n i f i c a n t variable i n the performance of. grrde-school g i r l s . P o s t - i n s t r u c t i o n a l test scores were higher for those high-anxiety g i r l s who had .feedback during learning. Low-anxiety female students who had no feedback had higher posttest scores than high-anxiety females who had no feedback. No s i g n i f i c a n t differences were found between low and high anxiety students under feedback conditions. Male students showed no s i m i l a r r e g u l a r i t y . Cronbach and Snow (1969) reported that t h i s f i f t h grade study by Campeau used programmed i n s t r u c t i o n , giving one group feedback to a s s i s t i n the c o r r e c t i o n of responses, and the other group no feedback. The number of subjects was small (36 boys, 44 g i r l s ) e s p e c i a l l y since the analysis was performed within sexes. Only persons at the extreme of the anxiety d i s t r i b u t i o n were used, the dependent variable was a posttest score with i n i t i a l IQ p a r t i a l l e d out. For g i r l s there was a s i g n i f i c a n t i n t e r a c t i o n , with those high on test anxiety doing d i s t i n c t l y better when given feedback and d i s t i n c t l y worse than low anxious when given no feedback. This was also found on a retention test. For boys, the r e l a t i o n s h i p s were not s i g n i f i c a n t , and on the immediate posttest there was e s s e n t i a l l y no e f f e c t . Reporting i s inadequate. It i s uncertain that the low anxious toys are s i m i l a r to the low anxious g i r l s . It i s often found that g i r l s are considerably higher i n test anxiety and i t may be that a g i r l ' s low score matches a boy's high score. Campeau's (1968) i n t e r p r e t a t i o n was that witholding feedback i n t e n s i f i e s motivation by maintaining a c e r t a i n incompleteness. That i s to say, the no feedback s i t u a t i o n 30 i s more challenging and more s t r e s s f u l . A l t e r n a t i v e l y , one could perhaps say that the provision of feedback provides greater structure, leaving the person much l e s s on his own resources. The e s s e n t i a l l y negative re s u l t f o r boys was not explained. Wittrock and Twelker (1964) found an i n t e r e s t i n g r e l a t i o n s h i p between knowledge-of-results and rules. While rules alone proved most e f f e c t i v e i n teaching subjects to decode ciphered sentences, knowledge-of-results was e s p e c i a l l y useful when rules were not supplied. It did not add to teaching effectiveness when supplied i n conjunction with rules, supporting the authors' contention that knowledge-of-results enhances learning, retention and transfer when the information i t contains i s not greatly redundant. Geis and Chapman (1971) found c o n f l i c t i n g r e s u l t s among studies that examined variable schedules of reinforcement and variable delays i n confirmation of correct or incorrect responses. No conclusions were reached about these variables. Anderson et_ al_. (1972) used several feedback arrangements involving a computer and a program on diagnosing myocardial i n f r a c t i o n . In on? experiment using several groups, they presented the correct response (1) only aft e r a correct response had been emitted, or (2) only aft e r a wrong response had been emitted, or (3) always (100 percent), or (4) never (0 percent), or (5) a f t e r a correct response, but the subject had to "loop" back to the same frame after the wrong response. C r i t e r i o n test scores were higher for the 100 percent feedback and the "looped" groups. The only group with s i g n i f i c a n t l y lower test scores was the no feedback group (0 percent). Of int e r e s t here i s the f a c t that no s i g n i f i c a n t difference was found between the 100 percent and the "looped" group, although the l a t t e r students underwent much more elaborate feedback procedures. There was no evidence i n t h i s study that knowledge-of-results functioned as co r r e c t i v e feedback. The group receiving knowledge-of-results only when errors were made did not perform s i g n i f i c a n t l y better on the c r i t e r i o n test than the other knowledge-of-results groups. The knowledge-of-results-only-when-correct group performed at the seme l e v e l as the other groups. The function of knowledge-of-results was not c l a r i f i e d by t h i s experiment. In a recent CAI study, Keats and Hansen (1972) examined the e f f e c t s of c o r r e c t i o n a l feedback on learning. They noted that the precise form and content for co r r e c t i o n a l messages that w i l i maximize learning remains a clouded issue, although the requirement for 32 c o r r e c t i o n a l feedback to wrong answers i n order to f a c i l i t a t e a c q u i s i t i o n has been well established. This study compared the e f f e c t s of using verbal d e f i n i t i o n s and numerical examples as CAI c o r r e c t i o n a l feedback i n a program involving mathematical proofs. Ss were f o r t y - f i v e ninth grade . students. Students were only required to state the rule which was applied to each step Of the proof. The feedback chosen f o r a p a r t i c u l a r step varied according to rules derived by l o g i c a l analysis c a r r i e d out by an experienced mathematics i n s t r u c t o r . The very low r e l i a b i l i t y of the instruments prevented conclusions from being drawn about the s i m i l a r i t y i n posttest and retention scores. However, i n terms of errors during the program, providing c o r r e c t i o n a l feedback i n the form of a verbal d e f i n i t i o n was more b e n e f i c i a l to the learner. Gilman (1967) investigated the e f f e c t of various kinds of feedback i n a computer a s s i s t e d i n s t r u c t i o n (CAI) system. He wrote that ". . . i f there were no purpose to feedback other than to provide the student with reinforcement, statements such as 'you are correct' should prove equally-e f f e c t i v e as confirmation of a correct answer." U n i v e r s i t y upperclassmen were taught t h i r t y general science concepts by means of a CAI s e l f - i n s t r u c t i o n a l system, using a multiple choice format. Various modes of feedback were used: no 33 feedback, "correct" or "wrong", feedback of correct response, feedback appropriate to the student's response, and a combination of the three l a t t e r modes. Students repeated items which were missed u n t i l a perfect run through was obtained. The no feedback group and the "correct" or ''wrong" group performed l e s s well on the program, making a s i g n i f i c a n t l y greater number of responses and requiring a greater number of i t e r a t i o n s of the program i n order to reach c r i t e r i o n . On the posttest, the combination feedback group scored s i g n i f i c a n t l y higher than did the others. This study suggests that more elaborate feedback may be more e f f e c t i v e i n changing student behaviour. Hernandez and Gilman (1969) compared the effectiveness of several feedback modes for correcting errors i n CAI. Seventy-five u n i v e r s i t y upperclassmen were taught t h i r t y general science concepts. The frames were multiple choice items and f i v e d i f f e r e n t conditions were administered, from no feedback up to feedback appropriate to the student's response. The r e s u l t s indicated that the most s i g n i f i c a n t f a c t o r i n rate of error correction i s guiding the subject to the correct response. The most s i g n i f i c a n t factor i n immediate learning i s amount of feedback information the subject receives. The author made an important point by noting that p r i o r studies i n programmed learning have not 3 4 been able to compare the effectiveness -of the several modes of feedback i n correcting the student errors because these studies u t i l i z e d low error rate, l i n e a r type programs. Since few incorrect responses are made by a student i n t h i s type of learning s i t u a t i o n , l i t t l e i s presently known concerning how feedback can be used to correct student errors. Van Dyke and Newton (1972) examined the e f f e c t of immediate and delayed knowledge-of-response i n a CAI task. Response differences between the sexes were investigated as well as attitudes toward CAI. Ss were college students taking an Introductory Psychology course. They concluded that short i n t e r v a l s of delay with CAI had no s i g n i f i c a n t e f f e c t on the learning or test performance of the in d i v i d u a l s used i n t h i s study. Delay of knowledge-of-r e s u l t s did r e s u l t i n a t t i t u d e differences, and t h i s e f f e c t varied with the sex of the learner. However, i t should be noted that the eleven item achievement test used i n the study had a K-R 20 r e l i a b i l i t y c o e f f i c i e n t of .44. Narva (1970) reported a study with c h a r a c t e r i s t i c s similar to the present study. He compared two types of CAI programs, one employing branching end the othar one linear i n format. He also varied the c o r r e c t i o n a l feedback given the student i n both types of programs. He used resporse-sens.it ive and response-insensitive c o r r e c t i o n a l 35 feedback i n a way similar to the present study except that the response-insensitive feedback provided only the correct answer. He used thirty-two subjects i n a 2 x 2 f a c t o r i a l design. The question was raised about whether t a i l o r i n g the program to i n d i v i d u a l students i s worth the cost. He found that p r e - i n s t r u c t i o n scores were not re l a t e d to l a t e r performance but that aptitude scores were s i g n i f i c a n t l y c o r r e l a t e d to posttest scores. He also found no s i g n i f i c a n t differences between either the two sequencing programs or between the two types of feedback. However, when an analysis unadjusted for the influence of the aptitude score was performed, a s i g n i f i c a n t difference i n favor of response-sensitive feedback was found. Finer grained analysis of student behaviour and knowledge-of-results begin to reveal s p e c i f i c conditions under which knowledge-of-results seems to be acting as re i n f o r c e r . A few studies scattered throughout the l i t e r a t u r e report on manipulation of subject and test variables and of kinds of feedback. The r e s u l t s of these studies suggest that knowledge-of-results may well be a re i n f o r c e r when uncertainty or p r o b a b i l i t y of emitting an incor r e c t response i s high, or where confidence i s low. Geis ana Chapman (1971) concluded that the weight of evidc-nce from global studies comparing programs with and 36 without feedback i s that feedback did not enhance learning, as measured.by immediate posttest scores or by retention scores. These authors conclude that: . . . one might jump into broader questions such as how, when and why information on one's own performance i n a learning s i t u a t i o n becomes r e i n f o r c i n g and contributes to more e f f e c t i v e learning. Along these l i n e s , several studies have recently concerned themselves with the e f f e c t of d i f f e r e n t types of c o r r e c t i o n a l feedback. These studies were reported above. The present study examines t h i s question as well. Summary The exact r o l e of c o r r e c t i o n a l feedback on the learning process and product i s unclear. Stolurow (1971), M e r r i l l (1971) and Annett (1969) have made a strong case f o r the importance of knowledge-o f - r e s u l t s i n the i n s t r u c t i o n a l process. Some experimenters have shown that c o r r e c t i o n a l feedback has a p o s i t i v e e f f e c t on learning and that t h i s e f f e c t depends on the nature of the learner. Campeau (1967) provided some evidence for a feedback-by-anxiety i n t e r a c t i o n on posttest scores, although t h i s study was c r i t i c i s e d by Crcnbach and Snow (1969). Wittrock and Twelker (1964) showed that knowledge-of-results enhanced learning, 3 7 retention and transfer when the information i t contained was not redundant. Keats and Hansen,(1972) performed a CAI study which provided some evidence that fewer errors were made during learning when co r r e c t i o n a l feedback i n the form of a verbal d e f i n i t i o n was supplied. Gilman (1967) performed a CAI experiment which suggested that more elaborate feedback might be more e f f e c t i v e i n changing student behaviour. Hernandez and Gilman (196 9) found that the most s i g n i f i c a n t f a c t o r i n immediate learning was the amount of feedback information the subject received. Narva (1970) c a r r i e d out a CAI experiment which showed that aptitude scores were re l a t e d to posttest scores and that response-sensitive feedback was superior to response-i n s e n s i t i v e feedback i n terms of posttest scores (unadjusted for aptitude). Despite the conclusion of Geis and Chapman (1971) that feedback d i d not enhance learning i n most studies reviewed, there i s enough evidence i n favour of c o r r e c t i o n a l feedback to question t h i s conclusion. If the information content of c o r r e c t i o n a l feedback is important to learning, then differences i n performance between the three treatment groups would be expected i n t h i s study. It was expected that providing response-s e n s i t i v e c o r r e c t i o n a l feedback (T^) would provide more 38 information to the student than providing response-i n s e n s i t i v e c o r r e c t i o n a l feedback (T 2) and that the T-^ treatment condition would then be less d i f f i c u l t than the T 2 treatment condition. Therefore, i t was hypothesized that i n terms of proportion of errors, average latency and immediate learning, T-[ students would perform s i g n i f i c a n t l y better than To students. Similar reasoning l e d to the conclusion that providing information i n the form of response-insensitive c o r r e c t i o n a l feedback (T 2) w i l l make the lesson less d i f f i c u l t than providing no c o r r e c t i o n a l feedback other than information that the student's response was correct ( T Q ) . Therefore, i t was hypothesized that i n terms of proportion of errors, average latency and immediate learning, T2 students would perform s i g n i f i c a n t l y better than T^ students. Higgins (1972) pointed out that feedback appears to be more e f f e c t i v e when the learner possesses a low l e v e l of competence with regard to the i n s t r u c t i o n a l task. If the i n s t r u c t i o n a l program i s e f f e c t i v e , then providing the student with corr e c t i o n a l feedback (T^ or T 2 ) would allow a l l students to a t t a i n the objectives of the unit. However, i f no c o r r e c t i o n a l feedback i s provided (T3), the lack of information would render the material too d i f f i c u l t for students who were lacking the p r e r e q u i s i t e s k i l l s or who had l i t t l e mathematical a b i l i t y . Students who had attained the prerequisites or who were high on mathematical a b i l i t y would be able to compensate fo r the lack of information provided and would often be able to provide their own explanation for their incorrect responses. Therefore, i t was hypothesized that i n terms of proportion of errors, average latency and immediate learning, students who are high on prerequisite s k i l l s or mathematical a b i l i t y would perform better than students low i n prerequisite s k i l l s or mathematical a b i l i t y when no c o r r e c t i o n a l feedback i s provided (Tg). The c r i t i c a l c r i t e r i o n of success i s the product of an i n s t r u c t i o n a l session, which i n this study was immediate learning. The process variables such as proportion of errors and response latency may be useful for basing decisions during i n s t r u c t i o n i n order to maximize immediate learning. However, a r e l a t i o n s h i p would have to be established between the process and product varia b l e s . Therefore, i t othesized that there would be a s i g n i f i c a n t l i n e a r r e l a t i o n s h i p between the process variables, i . e . proportion of errors and average latency and the product variable, i . e . immediate learning, with the e f f e c t s of treatment and learner c h a r a c t e r i s t i c s removed. X 40 Lit e r a t u r e on State-Tr a i t Anxiety Spielberger (1966) pointed out that since 1950 over 1,500 studies indexed under "anxiety" have been reported i n Psychological Abstracts. Despite so much e f f o r t i n the area, attempts to define anxiety have met with d i f f i c u l t i e s owing to widely d i f f e r e n t conceptions of anxiety. Szetela (1970) described some of the problems with the anxiety construct. He mentioned differences i n d e f i n i t i o n , l i m i t a t i o n s of paper and p e n c i l t e s t s , the unidimensional versus multidimensional question, and the state versus t r a i t conceptions of anxiety as unresolved issues. O'Neil e_t al_. (1969) noted that most studies concerning the e f f e c t s of anxiety on learning have originated either in a r t i f i c i a l laboratory settings or in r e a l i s t i c but poorly c o n t r o l l e d natural settings. CAI systems provide a convenient netting in which i t i s possible to evaluate the learning process under c a r e f u l l y c o n t r o l l e d conditions with materials that are relevant to the learner. O'Neil e_t a l . (1969) observed that research on anxiety and learning has suffered from ambiguity with regard to .the status of anxiety as a th e o r e t i c a l concept. Spielberger (1971, 1972) recently emphasized the need to d i s t i n g u i s h between anxiety conceptualized a.s a tra n s i t o r y state or condition of the organism and as a r e l a t i v e l y stable personality t r a i t . State anxiety (A-State) consists of fe e l i n g s of apprehension and heightened autonomic nervous system a c t i v i t y that vary i n in t e n s i t y and flu c t u a t e over time. T r a i t anxiety (A-Trait) r e f e r s to i n d i v i d u a l differences i n anxiety proneness, that i s , to d i f f e r e n t i a l tendencies among individuals' to respond with d i f f e r e n t levels of A-State i n si t u a t i o n s that are perceived as threatening. Persons high i n A-Trait are also more disposed to see certa i n types of situations as more dangerous, p a r t i c u l a r l y s i t u a t i o n s that involve f a i l u r e or some threat to that i n d i v i d u a l ' s self-esteem. F a i l u r e to make this d i s t i n c t i o n has led to the inappropriate use of operational measures of A-State and A-Trait, and this has contributed to the inconsistent and contradictory findings i n investigations of anxiety. The most serious methodological flaws are the use of A-Trait scales to measure tr a n s i t o r y anxiety and the common practice of f a i l i n g to obtain measures of A-State to corroborate the e f f e c t s of experimental manipulations designed to be s t r e s s f u l (Spielberger, 1972; O'Neil, 1972a). O'Neil e_t al_. (1969) pointed out that i n order to study the e f f e c t s of anxiety on learning, a theory of learning i s needed that s p e c i f i e s the complex r e l a t i o n s h i p between anxiety and behaviour. According to the Drive 42 Theory proposed by Spence and Taylor (Spielberger, 1972) the performance of high anxious students would be i n f e r i o r to that of low anxious students on complex or d i f f i c u l t tasks and superior on easy tasks. Much empirical support has.been provided f o r t h i s theory (O'Neil, 1969a, 1972a). O'Neil e_t a_l. (1969) investigated the r e l a t i o n s h i p between A-State and performance on a CAI task for college males with extreme scores on the A-Trait scale of the State-Trait Anxiety Inventory. D i f f i c u l t and easy CAI learning materials were presented by an IBM 1500 system which also presented the State-Trait Anxiety Inventory (STAI ) A-State scale, before, during and a f t e r the learning task. The findings of an e a r l i e r study (O'Neil e_t al_. , 1969) were confirmed i n that (a) A-State scores increased while subjects worked on d i f f i c u l t materials and decreased when they responded to easy materials; and (b) high A-State subjects made s i g n i f i c a n t l y more errors on the d i f f i c u l t materials than low A-State subjects. While there was no r e l a t i o n between A-T r a i t and performance, high A - T r a i t subjects responded throughout the learning task with higher l e v e l s of A-State than low A - T r a i t subjects. In a later study, O'Neil (1972aj again used a CAI task with college students i n an introductory psychology course. Subjects i n the stress condition were given negative feedback regarding their performance on a CAI 43 learning task, whereas subjects i n the non-stress condition received neutral feedback. Negative feedback about performance i n the stress condition led to greater i n i t i a l increments i n A-State for high A - T r a i t subjects than for low A-Trait subjects. This did not occur i n the non-stress group. These r e s u l t s are consistent with State-Trait Anxiety theory. This study produced d i f f e r e n t r e s u l t s with regard to the r e l a t i o n s h i p between A-State and errors because the high A-State subjects made s i g n i f i c a n t l y more errors than low A-State subjects on the easy materials. This r e s u l t was not consistent with the pre d i c t i o n from Drive Theory. One possible explanation of the inconsistent r e l a t i o n between A-State and errors i n O'Neil's two studies i s that the l a t t e r study used only female subjects and the former used males. O'Neil pointed out that the l i t e r a t u r e suggests that r e l a t i o n s h i p between anxiety and learning i s d i f f e r e n t f o r men and women. He noted that sex and anxiety interactions probably r e f l e c t s p e c i f i c s i t u a t i o n a l variables which influence learning and which may have d i f f e r e n t i a l s i g n i f i c a n c e for men and women. He suggests that caution must be exercised i n making generalizations concerning the rel a t i o n s h i p between anxiety, sex and learning. Wine's (1971) leview of the test anxiety l i t e r a t u r e has indicated that on d i f f i c u l t tasks i n which evaluative stress i s present, low anxiety (LA) students tend to achieve more than high anxiety (HA) i n d i v i d u a l s . Wine suggested that HA students, compared to LA, focus a greater proportion of their attention on personal preoccupations and less to task relevant problems. Tobias (1973) wrote that previous CAI research i n which state anxiety was assessed while students were working on i n s t r u c t i o n a l programs have indicated higher l e v e l s of anxiety for constructing responses compared to reading the program. He examined test anxiety i n a CAI study and found no e f f e c t on learning and concluded that i f anxiety i s to exercise d e b i l i t a t i n g e f f e c t s , more d i f f i c u l t content than presently used i s required. Hensen (1972) found that r e a l reductions i n A-State were obtained through increased use of information feedback, although th i s reduction d i d not necessarily r e s u l t i n higher levels of performance. Summary The findings from anxiety studies have been contradictory for reasons described by Spielberger (1966) and Szetela (1970). Recent work done with the State-Trait Anxiety Inventory (Spielberger e_t al_. , 1970) has shown promise i n leading to better understanding of the e f f e c t s 45 of anxiety on learning. O'Neil (1969, 1972a) has done some CAI research which has produced evidence to support Drive Theory, i . e . that the performance of high anxious students would be i n f e r i o r to that of low anxious students on complex or d i f f i c u l t tasks and superior on easy tasks. They also found that higher lev e l s of A-State were induced i n s i t u a t i o n s where stress was induced i n the students, which meant that the s i t u a t i o n was perceived as threatening. Wine (1971) also found evidence to suggest an anxiety by d i f f i c u l t y i n t e r a c t i o n for s t r e s s f u l tasks. As discussed i n the l a s t section, the three treatment groups i n this study should be ranked i n terms of d i f f i c u l t y from easy to d i f f i c u l t (T^ easier than T 2, T2 easier than T 3 ) . However, i t would appear that the large d i f f i c u l t y gap would occur between the T 2 and T3 groups. The T-^ or To treatments would probably be perceived as r e l a t i v e l y easy i n comparison to the more d i f f i c u l t T3 task, where no corr e c t i o n a l feedback i s provided. The students have had no experience i n i n t e r a c t i n q with a computer and t h i s factor combined with the strange content and surroundings would seem to provide enough stress to induce high levels of anxiety. Therefore, i n l i n e with recent evidence i t was hypothesized that students who are high in A-State w i l l have a s i g n i f i c a n t l y higher proportion of errors and average latency than low A-State students 46 when no co r r e c t i o n a l feedback i s provided (Tg) and this r e l a t i o n s h i p would be reversed when co r r e c t i o n a l feedback i s provided (To). Liter a t u r e on Aptitude-Treatment Interactions Bracht (1970) described the goal of research on aptitude-treatment interactions (ATI) as finding s i g n i f i c a n t d i s o r d i n a l i n t e r a c t i o n s between a l t e r n a t i v e treatments and personological variables, i . e . development of a l t e r n a t i v e i n s t r u c t i o n a l programs so that optimal educational benefits are obtained when students are assigned 'differently to the al t e r n a t i v e programs. The personological variable i n ATI research was defined as any measure of i n d i v i d u a l c h a r a c t e r i s t i c s , e.g. IQ, s c i e n t i f i c i n t e r e s t or anxiety. Cronbach and Snow (1969) have written a major report in the area of ATI. They defined "aptitude" as any c h a r a c t e r i s t i c of the i n d i v i d u a l that increases (or impairs) his p r o b a b i l i t y of success i n a given treatment, and includes personality c h a r a c t e r i s t i c s . They agreed +hat the immediate objective of current ATI work i s to match s p e c i f i c i n s t r u c t i o n a l methods or materials to selected learner c h a r a c t e r i s t i c s . But more broadly, they argued that ATI research i s concerned with theory to overarch diverse ideas such as the branching rules and strategies required i n CA.I. 47 As Bracht (1970) pointed out, there i s an increasing i n t e r e s t i n the topic of ATI among educational researchers, but very l i t t l e empirical evidence has been provided to support the concept. He conducted a systematic analysis of research studies to investigate the r e l a t i o n s h i p of treatment tasks, personological variables and dependent variables to the occurrence of ATI. He gave a flowchart of a procedure f o r testing an ATI i n a treatment-by-levels f a c t o r i a l design, since most studies used th i s design with analysis of variance. He suggested that t h i s method i s less powerful than regression analysis since creating a r t i f i c i a l l evels of a continuous personological variable tends to increase the error component i n the analysis. Regression analysis, however, was used i n r e l a t i v e l y few ATI studies. From his analysis, Bracht (1970) found d i s o r d i n a l i n t e r a c t i o n s i n only f i v e of the 103 studies. The r e s u l t s tend to indicate that there i s a r e l a t i o n s h i p between d i s o r d i n a l interactions and the degree of control over the treatment tasks of the experiment. Controlled treatment tasks may be a necessary but c e r t a i n l y not a s u f f i c i e n t requirement for d i s o r d i n a l i n t e r a c t i o n s . Measures of s p e c i f i c a b i l i t i e s , i n t e r e s t s , personality t r a i t s were c l a s s i f i e d as f a c t o r i a l l y simple. A personological variable was c l a s s i f i e d as f a c t o r i a l l y complex i f i t was judged to have a substantial loading on many facto r s i n the imaginary 48 \ factor matrix, e.g. general a b i l i t y . Bracht's (1970) r e s u l t s lend some support to the r e l a t i o n s h i p between ATI and the degree of f a c t o r i a l s i m p l i c i t y of the personological variable, although f a c t o r i a l s i m p l i c i t y c e r t a i n l y i s not a s u f f i c i e n t requirement f o r ATI. Many experiments using IQ as a variable found no evidence to suggest that the IQ score and similar measures of general a b i l i t y . a r e useful variables for d i f f e r e n t i a t i n g a l t e r n a t i v e treatments for subjects i n a homogeneous age group (Bracht, 1970). However, Cronbach and Snow (1969) recommended the development of a l t e r n a t i v e treatments on the basis of genera! a b i l i t y . They f e e l that general a b i l i t y seems to be nearly synonomous with ' a b i l i t y to learn', when that term i s given i t s usual common sense i n t e r p r e t a t i o n . One treatment should be designed to r e l y heavily on general a b i l i t y , and the other treatment should be designed to achieve the same objectives without r e l y i n g on general a b i l i t y . This a p r i o r i s p e c i f i c a t i o n of treatments had not been done i n past research. The reason for a p p l i c a t i o n of a broad, loose construct i s that at present there i s no evidence to support a more r e f i n e d one. Bracht (1970) learned very l i t t l e from his analysis about the r e l a t i o n s h i p between the dependent variable and the occurrence of ATI because the dependent variable was 49 most often errors i n learning or posttest score. Webb (1972) suggested that ATI studies include as many d i f f e r e n t c r i t e r i o n measures as possible, e.g. learning tests, retention tests, transfer tests, time to completion, etc. He f e e l s that the current state of the theory of ATI i s not well enough developed to determine the s p e c i f i c dependent variables that should or should not be included. Bracht found that ATI i s more l i k e l y to occur when two personological variables have been included i n the experimental design. One variable i s judged to correlate s u b s t a n t i a l l y with, success i n one treatment and the other judged to co r r e l a t e s u b s t a n t i a l l y with success i n the second treatment. The c o r r e l a t i o n between the two personological variables must be moderately low or nonsignificant for the d i s o r d i n a l i n t e r a c t i o n to occur. F i n a l l y , Bracht suggested that experimenters should begin to formulate hypotheses about ATI with administrative f a c t o r s , such as cost, i n mind. Hence, even ordinal i n t e r a c t i o n s may lead to decisions about d i f f e r e n t i a l assignment to treatments when administrative f a c t o r s are taken into account. Campeau (1963) found a s i g n i f i c a n t test anxiety by feedback i n t e r a c t i o n for g i r l s i n a study described e a r l i e r i n the section dealing with l i t e r a t u r e on knowledge-of-r e s u l t s . O'Neil (1972) found A s i g n i f i c a n t State Anxiety 50 by task d i f f i c u l t y i n t e r a c t i o n i n another study described e a r l i e r i n the section dealing with l i t e r a t u r e on anxiety. Dick and Latta (1970) compared a programmed i n s t r u c t i o n version with a comparable CAI version of the same material using grade eight mathematics students. The si x t y - f o u r students were randomly assigned to programmed i n s t r u c t i o n and CAI programs on the topic of s i g n i f i c a n t f i g u r e s . The r e s u l t s indicated that the students using programmed i n s t r u c t i o n performed s i g n i f i c a n t l y better than those using CAI. This difference was a t t r i b u t e d primarily to the very poor performance by the low a b i l i t y students in the CAI group. There was also a s i g n i f i c a n t a b i l i t y e f f e c t . The posttest and retention test r e s u l t s , as well as number of errors i n the actual learning sequence, indicated that there was a trait-by-treatment i n t e r a c t i o n which was interpreted p r i m a r i l y as a very poor performance by low a b i l i t y students on CAI, with almost equal performance by high and low a b i l i t y students u t i l i z i n g programmed i n s t r u c t i o n a l materials, The conjecture may be made that the low a b i l i t y students are unable to cope with the continuous flow of information as presented by the cathode-ray tube (CRT) without the • a b i l i t y to return to the information previously provided them Becker (1970) wrote that there e x i s t s a large number of studies that are i n d i r e c t l y relevant to aptitude-treatment i n t e r a c t i o n research but that few studies have been designed to investigate i n t e r a c t i o n between aptitude and i n s t r u c t i o n . Becker (1970) discussed the idea that various a b i l i t i e s might play an important r o l e i n determining what method of i n s t r u c t i o n i s prescribed for a p a r t i c u l a r learner or group of learners. For example, ind i v i d u a l s who are high on mathematical a b i l i t y should p r o f i t more from i n s t r u c t i o n that provides mathematical mediators than verbal ones. Becker (1970) pointed out some po t e n t i a l d i f f i c u l t i e s i n aptitutde-treatment i n t e r a c t i o n research. He concluded that the s e l e c t i o n of aptitude measures that w i l l i n t e r a c t with methods of i n s t r u c t i o n may be d i f f i c u l t . In general, aptitude measures may be needed that get at s p e c i f i c aspects of mental a b i l i t i e s and with acceptable l e v e l s of r e l i a b i l i t y . Determining the length of the treatment period i s another problem. The problem e x i s t s of assessing the impact of past i n s t r u c t i o n on subjects involved i n current research. F i n a l l y , i t i s d i f f i c u l t to determine the type of achievement ( c r i t e r i o n ) measures from which we are l i k e l y to derive i n t e r a c t i o n s . 52 Summary This b r i e f review of the ATI l i t e r a t u r e indicates that interactions between aptitude and treatment have been rare and that more work i s needed. The evidence from most ATI research i s not d e f i n i t i v e enough to provide guidance f o r i n d i v i d u a l i z i n g i n s t r u c t i o n . This study has attempted to provide evidence fo r the existence of interactions between c o r r e c t i o n a l feedback and anxiety, c o r r e c t i o n a l feedback and prerequisite s k i l l s and c o r r e c t i o n a l feedback and mathematical a b i l i t y . L i t e r a t u r e on T u t o r i a l Computer-Assisted Instruction (CAI) The most relevant CAI studies have already been reviewed i n previous sections of t h i s chapter. Some of the other l i t e r a t u r e i n this area w i l l now be examined. Stolurow (1968) i d e n t i f i e d several modes of CAI: problem solving, d r i l l and p r a c t i c e , inquiry, simulation and gaming, t u t o r i a l i n s t r u c t i o n and author mode. This study i s concerned with CAI t u t o r i a l mode. In t h i s racde, the i n s t r u c t i o n a l programmer takes r e s p o n s i b i l i t y for the student's i n s t r u c t i o n on the system. The l o g i c of i n s t r u c t i o n must be formalized i n d e c a i l and entered into the system. This mbc'e is i n a p r i m i t i v e state of development, It i s primarily conciotually rather than emp i r i c a l l y based, and i t s ultimate form w i l l i n e f f e c t be a theory of teaching. 53 The theory w i l l depend for development upon s p e c i f i c studies designed to generate data on how to use d i f f e r e n t rules for i n s t r u c t i n g students with d i f f e r e n t response h i s t o r i e s and unique c h a r a c t e r i s t i c s . Unfortunately, the above theory development has not progressed as well as Stolurow had envisioned. Most discussions of CAI are concerned with computer hardware and software problems. A few are concerned with decision l o g i c s and i n s t r u c t i o n a l strategies that primarily involve explanation of the functions involved i n t r a n s f e r r i n g from i n s t r u c t i o n a l block to i n s t r u c t i o n a l block. Fewer discussions involve d e t a i l about the c h a r a c t e r i s t i c s of the teaching sequence within these blocks i n terms of the stimulus display, the student response or the feedback information required (Glaser, 1971). The i n t e r a c t i o n of these variables with c h a r a c t e r i s t i c s of the learner s t i l l remains to be studied. Gentile (1967) and Dick (1965) reached the same conclusion. The matter of personality-computer i n t e r a c t i o n remains to be studied. One program structure w i l l not be appropriate foa. a i l l e v e l s of a b i l i t y and various subject matter areas (Dick, 1965). Gentile (1967) wrote that almost a l l funis a l l o t t e d to CAI projects are being spent cn the development of courses or equipment to the exclusion of research on teaching and learning , variables, where 54 research i s needed most. Sherman (1971) distinguished two tasks i n developing a CAI lesson. The f i r s t task i s one of designing the pedagogical exchanges, i . e . the sequence of exchanges that conversations may follow. The second task i n developing CAI conversations i s that of programming the conversational network so that a given computer can play i t s r o l e i n the dialogue. He proposed reducing the time spent on the second task by the use of programmed templates. Sherman (1971) defined the work "template" as: . . . a sequence of instructions to the computer for processing a p a r t i c u l a r network of conversational exchanges and connotes a p a r t i c u l a r pattern f o r the presentation of questions, answers and other basic elements of t u t o r i a l conversation. The pattern determines only the l o g i c of the con-versational exchanges, not the content of the conversations themselves. Sherman (1971) developed a template and used i t to program a dialogue to teach some college physics concepts. Investigators i n several major CAI centres are curren t l y conducting research and development a c t i v i t i e s i n the area of t u t o r i a l mode CAI. Several CAI projects were reported by Bande.rsor. et _al, (1968) at the University of Texas at Austin o.nd Hansen (1971) at F l o r i d a State Un i v e r s i t y . In a project at the University of Texas at Austin (Judd e_t al_. , 1970) a CAI course was developed to provide diagnosis of d e f i c i e n c i e s i n s k i l l s p r e r e q u i s i t e to freshman science courses. The CAI students achieved well and demonstrated superior performance to the non-CAI students on the posttest. They also found that i n some cases program control was superior to learner control and i n other cases some form of learner control was superior. Bunderson (1971) f e l t that the r e s u l t s of t h i s study are so complicated by i n t e r a c t i o n s with pretest score, terminal type, amount of p r a c t i c e and topic as to make generalizations r i s k y . Other CAI programs at Texas are used to teach English, Computer Programming, Business Management, Astronomy Mathematics and Science, Arabic Writing System and Chemistry. The r e s u l t s from these projects are not conclusive. The projects are regarded as exploratory i n nature a.nd provide information and methods to ease the problem of designing high q u a l i t y i n s t r u c t i o n a l programs; the costs of preparation maintenance, and r e v i s i o n are the primary variables. Minimum l e v e l s of student performance, time to complete and a t t i t u d e ratings are used as design c r i t e r i a . Several recent studies have u t i l i z e d t u t o r i a l mode CAI to study the i n s t r u c t i o n a l process. Some of these studies (Gilman, 1967; Keats and Hansen, 1972; V^n Dyke, 1972) have been described i n the e a r l i e r sections of this chapter. Other studies i n the areti arc described below. Sutter and Reid (1969) showed that the effectiveness of CAI i n teaching a course i n problem solving i s the same for the student working alone with the machine as for the student working with a partner at the machine, except when conditional upon c e r t a i n personality t r a i t s . College students were used and high test anxiety was associated with negative attitudes toward CAI i n both the paired and alone groups. A s i g n i f i c a n t i n t e r a c t i o n was obtained between test anxiety and achievement for the two groups. Students high i n test anxiety achieved better working alone, while those low i n test anxiety achieved better working with a partner. An i n t e r a c t i o n was also found between s o c i a b i l i t y and achievement for the two groups. Bunderson and his colleagues (Bunderson, 1971) developed an imaginary science task c a l l e d a Xenograde system. The Xenograde system has the h i e r a r c h i c a l structure of concepts and quantitative rules c h a r a c t e r i s t i c of many topics i n science education. The greatest advantage of i t s imaginary character has been to enable researchers to concentrate on design variables - structure, display, etc.. rather than subject matter variables. Several CAI studies of learning have been conducted with t h i s topic. O l i v i e r (1971) compared the performance of students i n the learner control mode with students for whom the sequence was con t r o l l e d by the program. He matched students in both 57 groups and so the data were not treated s t a t i s t i c a l l y but are suggestive only. The conclusion i s that except for a small number of exceptional students, learner control of the sequence of lessons i n a hierarchy may be less e f f e c t i v e for learning new material than a r a t i o n a l l y planned, c a r e f u l l y designed program-controlled sequence. Bunderson (1971) wrote that i n subsequent studies using p a r t i a l l y f a m i l i a r material the r e s u l t s were less clear cut. M e r r i l l (1971) investigated the e f f e c t s that a v a i l a b i l i t y of behaviourally stated objectives would have on the learning process. The Xenograde science was used with 130 college students. The r e s u l t s showed that objectives s i g n i f i c a n t l y reduced the number of examples required to learn the task. Objectives did not reduce t o t a l latency but did reduce test-item response latency. No s i g n i f i c a n t differences were found between treatments on the posttests or retention tests, but a s i g n i f i c a n t r u l e e f f e c t was found i n favour of the groups which received the rule as opposed to examples. S i g n i f i c a n t a b i l i t y - b y -treatment i n t e r a c t i o n s were obtained using test-item-response latency as c r i t e r i o n and reasoning f a c t o r scores, plus i n d i v i d u a l reasoning tests as covariables. On the basis of the r e s u l t s of t h i s study i t was concluded that objectives have or i e n t i n g and organizing e f f e c t s which dispose students 58 to attend to, process and structure relevant information in accordance with the given objectives. Lorber (1970) demonstrated that CAI i s an e f f e c t i v e means by which to teach the basic elements of tests and measurements and pup i l evaluation of prospective secondary school teachers. His r e s u l t s showed that the CAI group scored higher on the posttest than the conventional classroom group and needed less i n s t r u c t i o n a l time. Attitudes towards CAI were favourable. T i r a (1970) produced a CAI program dealing with the Product-Moment f a c i l y of c o r r e l a t i o n s . This non-experimental study had four phases: (1) d e f i n i t i o n of requirements, (2) design of lesson content, (3) production of CAI dialogue from content, (4 ) evaluation of the program. The program was judged to be successful and the author recommended that the entering c h a r a c t e r i s t i c s of the learner be i d e n t i f i e d and paired with a program sequence which would best f a c i l i t a t e the meaningful learning of the concepts on the CAI course. Ibrahim (1970) compared CAI with other i n s t r u c t i o n a l methods i n the teacning of the concepts of l i m i t s i n freshman calculus. The other i n s t r u c t i o n a l methods were (1) the.instructor centred or t r a d i t i o n a l approach and (2) a combination of t r a d i t i o n a l and CAI. The findings were that the CAI students did s i g n i f i c a n t l y better than t r a d i t i o n a l l y taught students on immediate achievement but no s i g n i f i c a n t differences were found i n retention, a t t i t u d e s toward CAI and toward mathematics. CAI was as e f f e c t i v e as other methods i n teaching the concepts of l i m i t s . Castleberry (1970) developed and evaluated CAI programs on selected topics i n introductory college chemistry. These topics were a combination of t u t o r i a l d r i l l and simulation modules designed solely as supplementary study aids. The conclusions were that the students acquired the behavioural objectives of the modules to varying degrees. The modules allowed for a range of i n d i v i d u a l differences based on a b i l i t y , p rior learnings and s e l f - e v a l u a t i o n . The CAI programs had a s i g n i f i c a n t e f f e c t on achievement as measured by the f i n a l examination. F u l l scale implementation of a course with these modules would be f e a s i b l e . Cropley and Gross (1970) compared a group of u n i v e r s i t y students who received i n s t r u c t i o n i n FORTRAN . programming via CAI through a remote terminal connected to a computer more than 400 miles away with a programmed i n s t r u c t i o n group and a conventional lecture group. A l l three methods proved to be equally e f f e c t i v e and no serious 60 negative f e e l i n g s about being taught by machines were reported by the students. CAI compared favourably with t r a d i t i o n a l i n s t r u c t i o n as f a r as time was concerned. Their f i n d i n g s suggest that CAI i s a r e a l i s t i c and acceptable a l t e r n a t i v e to t r a d i t i o n a l classroom procedures i n appropriate s i t u a t i o n s . Oldehoeft and Conte (1971) developed a computer system at Purdue University to teach portions of an undergraduate course i n numerical methods. Each i n s t r u c t i o n a l unit or lesson was divided into three modes of i n s t r u c t i o n which allowed the student to progress from a computer-controlled presentation to a student-controlled i n v e s t i g a t i o n . These were t u t o r i a l mode, problem mode and in v e s t i g a t i o n mode. The system was designed as a classroom independent course of study, and had been used for two semesters by students i n place of conventional classroom i n s t r u c t i o n . The program consisted of twenty-five lessons. The t u t o r i a l mode was si m i l a r to l i n e a r programmed i n s t r u c t i o n where the student responded to a mixture of multiple choice and constructed response type items. The i n s t r u c t i o n a l strategy here was sim i l a r to that developed by Bork (1971). A major factor which l i m i t s the o v e r a l l effectiveness i s a general lack of anticipated incorrect responses b u i l t into the program. The o v e r a l l i n d i c a t i o n was that the average CAI student performed 61 as well as he would have under the conventional system. The o v e r a l l attitude toward CAI was favourable. Fenichel e_t a l . (1970) developed the TEACH system at MIT to ease the cost and improve the r e s u l t s of elementary i n s t r u c t i o n in programming. To the student, TEACH o f f e r s loosely guided experience with a conversational language which was designed with teaching i n mind. Faculty involvement i s minimal. The evaluation of the project indicated that the technical aim of completing the system and bringing i t into production and smooth operation has been met. No tests have been made to determine the e f f i c a c y of the teaching method, although interviews with the students determined that the students had i n f a c t learned the material. The authors distinguished between semantic and syntactic errors. The technical issue of error detection was r a i s e d and the authors described the problem of semantic error detection as that of informing a student of what error he has made and o f f e r i n g him suitable help at the appropriate time. The system mu?t be able to go beyond s u p e r f i c i a l l y erroneous input to determine whether i t was a simple s l i p or whether i t was the r e s u l t of some deep conceptual misunderstanding. This task i s presently being tackled by the experimenters. Bork and Sherman (1971) and l a t e i Kalman, Kaufman and 62 Ladd (1971) used a t u t o r i a l program to teach the proof of the conservation of energy to college students. The CAI lesson proved successful, a c t i v e l y involving the students in a t u t o r i a l lesson and teaching the concepts involved. Several problems were noted. The d i f f i c u l t y of using standard Calculus notation on a computer terminal and the i n a b i l i t y of the computer to recognize a l l correct and incorrect responses were notable l i m i t a t i o n s . Hansen (1966) reviewed CAI t u t o r i a l applications and found that the most consistent f i n d i n g i s the marked saving i n i n s t r u c t i o n a l time with no loss i n p o s t - i n s t r u c t i o n achievement test performance. Kromhout, Edwards and Schwartz (1969) described the use of computers i n physics i n s t r u c t i o n . They presented a d e s c r i p t i o n of representative CAI projects i n physics and concluded that most projects were s t i l l i n the early testing stage. They also concluded that the varied and imaginative uses of the computer were encouraging and that introduction of the computer into physics i n s t r u c t i o n represented a s i g n i f i c a n t development. Atkinson (1968) described a CAI t u t o r i a l project to teach reading to f i r s t grade c u l t u r a l l y disadvantaged children. An experiment was conducted which compared a CAI group to a t r a d i t i o n a l group taught by a teacher i n the 63 classroom. The two groups were not s i g n i f i c a n t l y d i f f e r e n t at the s t a r t of the year, but at the end of the year the group that received computer-assisted reading i n s t r u c t i o n performed s i g n i f i c a n t l y better on almost a l l of the reading achievement tests. He concluded that from the standpoint of both the rate of progress and the t o t a l number of problems completed during the year, the computer curriculum appeared to be quite responsive to i n d i v i d u a l differences. Few sex differences were found and the r e s u l t s suggest that with CAI, sex difference i s minimized as the emphasis moves toward analysis and away from rote memorization. The one kind of problem on which the g i r l s achieved s i g n i f i c a n t l y higher scores than the boys, word-test learning, i s e s s e n t i a l l y a memorization task. Students, teachers and parents reacted favourably to the introduction of CAI to the classroom. Various optimization routines were evaluated and Atkinson believes that these evaluations have suggested other experiments and analysis which could lay the grcundword for a theory of i n s t r u c t i o n t r u l y useful to the educator. Cartwright and M i t z e l (1971) developed a mobile CAI laboratory at Pennsylvania State University u t i l i z i n g an IBM 1500 i n s t r u c t i o n a l system. A CAI course was developed which would provide intensive training in s p e c i a l education 64 concepts to sparsely populated counties. The course was c a l l e d Computer-Assisted Remedial Education (CARE). P i l o t groups and other formative evaluation procedures were used to produce a CAI course which was i n t e r n a l l y v a l i d and error f r e e . Summative evaluations have shown that students who took the CAI course scored s i g n i f i c a n t l y higher i n achievement and used about one-third less time to cover the r same objectives than students instructed i n the conventional lecture-discussion method. Lower (1971) recently reported on CAI a c t i v i t i e s at Simon Fraser University (SFU) i n B r i t i s h Columbia. He reported that more than eighty CAI courses have been authored at SFU but that most of these have been experimental or exploratory i n nature. Only about ten have ac t u a l l y received substantial use i n connection with regular univer s i t y cr high school courses. Most of the courses are i n chemistry, but there has been some authoring a c t i v i t y within the areas of physics, mathematics, biology and economics, while the high school courses cover a wider sphere. He notes that students have played an important r o l e i n programming of the courses. An important conclusion i s the idea that CAI i s only one component of an i n s t r u c t i o n a l system and that computer managed i n s t r u c t i o n may be more e f f e c t i v e i n prac t i c e . 65 The most sophisticated and advanced CAI system i s currently the PLATO system at the University of I l l i n o i s (Bitzer, 1967; B r a u n f i e l d et a l . , 1962; Alpert et a l . , 1970). Hammond (1972) wrote that the PLATO system i s one of the most ambitious time sharing systems ever attempted. Much of the hardware, a new programming language adapted for teaching, and economical new techniques f o r l i n k i n g remote terminals to a cen t r a l computer were designed s p e c i f i c a l l y for educational use. The student terminals are perhaps the most sophisticated and expensive devices ever developed for communicating with a computer. For authoring new courses, a programming language (Tutor) based on English grammar and syntax i s designed f o r use by teachers with no knowledge of computers. Some 200 such teachers of varying backgrounds have created courses with Tutor and e a r l i e r versions of PLATO. Bi t z e r e_t a l . (1967) described the ap p l i c a t i o n of the PLATO system to science education. Lessons on genetics, chemistry, physics, engineering and elementary school topics are being used. Braunfield and Fosdick (1962) pointed out that the power of the computer based teaching system stems from i t s a b i l i t y to pose complex questions, judge the students' answers to these questions and take an appropriate course of action on the basis of student responses. The computer also 66 keeps d e t a i l e d and accurate records of student performance, which are useful guides to improving course content. The authors reported a study using PLATO to teach nine under-graduate students a portion of a course i n computer programming. The teaching l o g i c was defined and the authors presented tables to indicate the most useful types of data which can be gathered about the i n s t r u c t i o n a l process. They concluded that the students found the PLATO system very easy to use and that the system did not d i s t r a c t the students' attention from the lessons themselves, Alpert and B i t z e r (1970) reported on the PLATO IV system, which i s the l a t e s t version of t h i s system. They reported a study i n which a c l a s s of twenty students i n a medical science course was taught for a semester e n t i r e l y with the PLATO IV system. When compared with a control group i n a n a t i o n a l l y administered test, the i.tudents taught with the PLATO IV system were found to have scored as well in grade performance even though they had required only one-third to one-half as many student contact hours of i n s t r u c t i o n as those taught in the conventional classroom. Subsequent measurements extending over a twenty-six week period indicated that the PLATO group showed H greater retention over that i n t e r v a l . 67 B i t z e r et. al. (1967) claimed that CAI was e f f e c t i v e i n teaching e l e c t r i c a l engineering. Students taught by the inquiry method showed greater problem solving a b i l i t y than those taught by the t u t o r i a l method. He further claimed to have gained some insight into the learning process, thereby improving the material presented i n both inquiry and t u t o r i a l modes. He concluded that the PLATO-CAI system can both teach and explore physical and behavioural experiments, thus he described his system as v e r s a t i l e and f l e x i b l e . Summary The purpose of t h i s review of t u t o r i a l CAI was to provide a variety of examples which would demonstrate the po t e n t i a l contribution of CAI to education. The studies relevant to the present study were discussed i n e a r l i e r sections of the chapter. A wide range of a c t i v i t y i s ongoing i n the area of t u t o r i a l CAI with regard to hardware (Hammond, 1972), software (Fenichel et a l . , 1970), i n s t r u c t i o n a l courses (Bitzer e_t aJ. , 1967; Cartwright and Metzel, 1971; Lower, 1971), i n s t r u c t i o n a l strategies (Bork, 1971; Oldehoeft and Conte, 1971). Summary of Rcser.rch Hypotheses The research questions of int e r e s t were raised i n Chapter 1. The questions can be translated into s p e c i f i c hypotheses as follows: l a . In terms of proportion of err o r s , average latency and immediate learning, students provided with response-sensitive c o r r e c t i o n a l feedback (T^) w i l l perform s i g n i f i c a n t l y better than students provided with response-insensitive c o r r e c t i o n a l feedback ( T 2 ) . lb. In terms of proportion of errors, average latency and immediate learning, students provided with response-insensitive c o r r e c t i o n a l feedback (T 2) w i l l perform s i g n i f i c a n t l y better than students provided with no c o r r e c t i o n a l feedback ( T 3 ) . 2. Students who are high i n A-State w i l l have a s i g n i f i c a n t l y higher proportion of errors and average latency than low A-State students when no co r r e c t i o n a l feedback i s provided (T3) and this r e l a t i o n s h i p w i l l be reversed when co r r e c t i o n a l feedback i s provided (T 2) 3. In terms of proportion of errors, average latency and immediate learning, students who are high i n prer e q u i s i t e s k i l l s w i l l perform better than students low i n prereq u i s i t e s k i l l s when no c o r r e c t i o n a l feedback i s provided ( T 3 ) 6 9 4. In terms of proportion of errors, average latency and immediate learning, students who are high i n mathematical a b i l i t y w i l l perform better than students low i n mathematical a b i l i t y when no co r r e c t i o n a l feedback i s provided ( T 3 ) . 5. There w i l l be a s i g n i f i c a n t l i n e a r r e l a t i o n s h i p between the process variables (proportion of errors and average latency) and the product variable (immediate learning) with the e f f e c t s of treatment and learner c h a r a c t e r i s t i c s (A-State, prerequisite s k i l l s , mathematical a b i l i t y ) removed. CHAPTER III METHOD Subjects The experimental subjects consisted of sixty-three preservice elementary school teachers i n the Faculty of Education at the University of B r i t i s h Columbia. These students were following a compulsory course i n methods of teaching mathematics and they were awarded cr e d i t towards their f i n a l course grade f o r p a r t i c i p a t i n g i n the experiment. A p i l o t study c a r r i e d out i n the developmental stage of the materials suggested that the content i s most suitable for undergraduate students having some mathematical or s c i e n t i f i c background (Kalman, Kaufman and Smith, 1972). Students from the Faculty of Education were u t i l i z e d i n t h i s study since these students had studied the necessary secondary-school mathematics, but would probably f i n d the material f a i r l y d i f f i c u l t . It was assumed that these students would make more errors during learning. These incorrect responses would provide data for evaluation of the e f f e c t s of c o r r e c t i o n a l feedback on student performance and would provide a v a l i d test of the program's teaching effect i v e n e s s . 70 71 Experimental Procedures The experimental procedure was divided into one day periods: (1) i n i t i a l lecture and t e s t i n g session;- (2) task period on CAI computer terminal followed by posttest and debriefing. The procedure i s l i s t e d below i n Table 1. TABLE 1 EXPERIMENTAL PROCEDURE 1 A c t i v i t y ! Variables Measured Approximate Time Required (min.) DAY 1 1. Short lecture 15 given to subjects. 2.

The DAY 1 testing sessions were also u t i l i z e d to schedule students fo r the DAY 2 computer sessions. The DAY 2 sessions were held Monday to Friday at 9:00 a.m. and 5:00 p.m. for most students, although sixteen students completed these sessions on either Saturday or Sunday morning or afternoon. The experimental subjects defined e a r l i e r were run i n groups of three to f i v e persons on IBM 2741 computer terminals i n an i s o l a t e d room above the Computing Centre at the University of B r i t i s h Columbia. Subjects from each of the three treatment groups worked simultaneously i n order to control for extraneous environmental and time variables. The CAI sessions were interrupted only once when the computer became inoperational fo r f i f t e e n minutes near the start of the prelesson. Four students were required to r e s t a r t t h e i r CAI lessons and to re-enter t h e i r responses up to the point of the i n t e r r u p t i o n . A few minor d i f f i c u l t i e s were encountered with the terminals but these were e a s i l y remedied by replacing the type-ball or by t r a n s f e r r i n g the student to another terminal. Design The subjects were randomly assigned to three treatment 73 groups and a balanced design was obtained with twenty-one students i n each group. Each group received the same content and i n s t r u c t i o n a l l o g i c f or the CAI lesson. The three treatment groups d i f f e r e d i n terms of the i n s t r u c t i o n a l strategy employed to achieve the main lesson i n s t r u c t i o n a l objectives. The difference was s p e c i f i c a l l y i n terms of the d i f f e r e n t type of c o r r e c t i o n a l feedback provided to the learner. A l l three treatment groups received i d e n t i c a l information regarding the correct response together with the explanation at some point during the implementation of the p a r t i c u l a r i n s t r u c t i o n a l strategy. The key independent variable i n the experiment was co r r e c t i o n a l feedback and i t was the informational content of the feedback that was being varied. The other independent variables represented both cognitive and personality c h a r a c t e r i s t i c s of the students. The cognitive variables d i f f e r e d i n terms of the i r r e l a t i o n s h i p of the s p e c i f i c CAI task. These were mathematical a b i l i t y and a b i l i t y to perform on the prelesson. Cronbach and Snow (1969) have suggested that the pretest score i s an aptitude and should be treated along with other aptitudes. The personality variables were both t r a i t - and state-anxiety. State-anxiety was measured at three points throughout the experiment and Trait-anxiety was measured at the beginning. The dependent or c r i t e r i o n variables i n t h i s study were posttest score, proportion of errors during learning and average response latency. The l a t t e r two were the process variables and the former was the product variable. Suppes (1967) claimed that response latencies are more se n s i t i v e measures of s k i l l mastery and depth of learning than the response errors themselves and response latencies were examined as well. Unanticipated student responses and the number of times the student asked for help were recorded for post hoc analysis, as well as means and correlations of selected experimental variables. I n s t r u c t i o n a l Logic f o r Prelesson The template used i n the prelesson i s shown i n Figure 2. The flowchart reveals how t h i s CAI t u t o r i a l lesson served as a pretest of p r e r e q u i s i t e s . A student was f i r s t tested on the p r e r e q u i s i t e concept and then given i n s t r u c t i o n i n that concept only i f he f a i l e d i n i t i a l l y to respond"correctly. After the concept was taught, the student was again tested, but on a d i f f e r e n t example.

Figure 3 Main Lesson Instructional Logic 77 shown i n the flowchart, a student received a mark of 0, 1, or 2 on each i n s t r u c t i o n a l unit, based on his previous knowledge and his a b i l i t y to learn the concepts new to him. The prelesson had three functions: (a) to provide a measure of the student's knowledge or a b i l i t y to learn this p a r t i c u l a r domain of content i n t h i s p a r t i c u l a r medium; (b) to ensure that the student had attained the necessary prerequisites before proceeding to the main lesson; and (c) to provide p r a c t i c e i n working on the CAI terminal. I n s t r u c t i o n a l Logic for Main Lesson A flowchart of the i n s t r u c t i o n a l l o g i c used for the three treatment groups on each i n s t r u c t i o n a l unit i s shown i n Figure 3. An explanation of the flowchart l o g i c w i l l now be given. The student i s f i r s t asked a question by the computer and he responds either by asking f o r help or by attempting to answer the question. If he types HELP, a hint i s given and he must respond again. I f he types HELP a second time, the student i s given the correct answer with an explanation before proceeding to the next i n s t r u c t i o n a l unit. The student who responds to the o r i g i n a l question may respond c o r r e c t l y . •In other words, h i s answer matches a predetermined correct answer keyword. When thi s match occurs, the computer types: an appropriate encouraging comment 78 such as "good". The wording of the comment depends on the value of a counter, GX, which keeps track of the number of consecutive correct r e p l i e s up to four i n a row. After the encouraging comment, the computer provides the correct answer with an explanation before proceeding to the following i n s t r u c t i o n a l unit. The student may respond i n c o r r e c t l y to the o r i g i n a l question. This means that h i s answer matches a predetermined incorrect answer keyword. The computer may branch to another question for remedial assistance or may provide c o r r e c t i o n a l feedback, depending upon the pr i o r decision of the i n s t r u c t i o n a l programmer. Making two incorrect responses of the same type, that i s , f a l l i n g i nto the same wrong answer c l a s s twice, causes the correct answer and an explanation to be provided before proceeding to the following i n s t r u c t i o n a l unit. An incorrect response r e - i n i t i a l i z e s the counter, GX, to zero. The student's response may not match any of the correct or incorrect keywords and his response w i l l not be recognized by the computer. One or two NOMATCH responses cause a comment to be provided and the student i s asked to try again. A t h i r d NOMATCH response causes the computer to provide the student with the correct answer and an explanation before proceeding with the subsequent i n s t r u c t i o n a l u n i t . The option also e x i s t s f o r branching to other i n s t r u c t i o n a l units i f a correct or a p a r t i c u l a r incorrect response i s recognized. Operational D e f i n i t i o n s of Treatments The f i r s t treatment group (T^) was instructed p r e c i s e l y according to the i n s t r u c t i o n a l l o g i c shown i n Figure 3. The deepest l e v e l of i n t e r a c t i o n was attained between the learner and the computer through the i n s t r u c t i o n a l program because the nature of the student's incorrect response was used as the c r i t e r i o n for providing response-sensitive c o r r e c t i o n a l feedback. This feedback was determined by pr i o r analysis of each question by the i n s t r u c t i o n a l designer. The second treatment group (T 2) received response-i n s e n s i t i v e c o r r e c t i o n a l feedback. Each T0 subject was provided with a hint when he responded i n c o r r e c t l y . This hint was predetermined and was provided to each T2 subject regardless of the nature of his i n c c r r e c t response. An important c r i t e r i o n for choosing the hint i n T^ was that no more information would be provided than could be obtained from a l l the hints f o r the corresponding i n s t r u c t i o n a l unit i n T^. The comment blocks which followed the wrong answers 8 0 a l l contained i d e n t i c a l comments f o r a p a r t i c u l a r i n s t r u c t i o n a l u n i t (see Figure 3 ) . The t h i r d treatment group (T3) received no co r r e c t i o n a l feedback information. Each T3 subject was merely informed about the incorrectness of his response and no remedial information was provided. The comment blocks which followed the wrong answers contained no hints, but contained only information t e l l i n g the T^ subject that his answer was incor r e c t . The reader can refer to Appendix D i n order to compare the three versions of the main lesson, T-^ , T 2 and T 3 . CAI Author Language The CAI author, or programming, language was written by the experimenter i n FORTRAN IV and requires a minimum amount of computer knowledge and experience on the part of a user. A User's Guide for the language along with a source l i s t i n g of the program i s provided i n Appendix A. This language was modified i n order to implement the i n s t r u c t i o n a l l o g i c f or the prelesson. These modifications are described and a l i s t i n g of the modified source program i s provided i n Appendix B. Inst r u c t i o n a l Materials The procedure ui-ed i n designing the i n s t r u c t i o n a l 81 materials was described i n a review of modular i n s t r u c t i o n by Goldschmid and Goldschmid (1971). The procedure consisted of the following steps: 1. I d e n t i f i c a t i o n of the subject matter to be taught 2. D e f i n i t i o n of a set of objectives 3. Deciding upon the hierarchy of objectives which i n • turn describes the sequence of i n s t r u c t i o n 4. I d e n t i f i c a t i o n of prerequisites 5. Development of a pretest 6 . P r o v i s i o n of i n s t r u c t i o n a l options 7. Design of a posttest The subject matter consisted of the concept of the de r i v a t i v e i n elementary calculus and the r e l a t i o n s h i p s between the mathematical concepts and the ph y s i c a l concepts of distance, speed and time. The lesson could be characterized as a mathematical derivation supplemented by numerical problems which are solved during the lesson. This topic was chosen to s a t i s f y the requirement for a module to teach this material to a group of undergraduate science students at Loyola College i n Montreal, Quebec (Kalman, Kaufman, Smith, 1972). The CAI module i s currently f u l f i l l i n g t h i s role but i n a d i f f e r e n t form than the one used i n t h i s experiment. Cronbach and Snow (1969) have suggested that the ideal treatment-set for ATI research i s l i k e l y to consist i n applications of some regular i n s t r u c t i o n a l material. This suggestion was followed i n t h i s study. The prerequisites f o r the main lesson are given i n Table 2. These were i d e n t i f i e d by a l o g i c a l a n a lysis of the content area performed by the investigator with the assistance of two college i n s t r u c t o r s who had been teaching mathematics and science courses f o r at least three years (Kalman, Kaufman, Smith, 1972). The prerequisites were subsequently modified af t e r a p i l o t test of the program. The prelesson dealt with these prer e q u i s i t e s . An overview of the ccntent of the prelesson i s given i n Table 2. and a d e t a i l e d view of the prelesson i s shown i n Figure 4. If a subject had acquired the p r e r e q u i s i t e objective, he proceeded immediately to the following item. If not, he was instructed and l a t e r retested on this p r e r e q u i s i t e , as indicated e a r l i e r i n Figure 2.

The objectives for the main lesson were determined and these provided the rationale for the l o g i c of the i u a i n ienson content. These i n s t r u c t i o n a l objectives are given i n Table 3 and a d e t a i l e d view of the content o.~ the mnin lesson i s given i n Figure ~.

These units were the ones given to a l l students i n the experiment. Units 15, 16 and 17 comprised the optional section on l i m i t s . Units 18 to 22 comprised the A-State scale and Unit 10 was an exposition of some content followed by the question, "Do you understand?" A posttest was developed and i s given i n Appendix F.

Posttest. The eighteen-item multiple choice posttest was designed to measure student performance on the objectives given i n Table 2. This instrument was intended to serve as a cri t e r i o n - r e f e r e n c e d test and a copy i s given i n Appendix F. Content v a l i d i t y was assured f o r thi s test by generating s p e c i f i c items from the l i s t of i n s t r u c t i o n a l objectives with due regard given to the r e l a t i v e emphasis given to these objectives i n the main lesson.

The r e s u l t s shown i n Table 5 indicate tnat there were no meaningful differences between the three groups on the in d i v i d u a l items, but that cer t a i n items t?ere too d i f f i c u l t and should be revised. The d i f f i c u l t items were 13, 15, 17 and 18. 90 Mathematical a b i l i t y test. The Cooperative Sequential Test of Educational Progress, Mathematics Form 2A (1957), was administered to a l l subjects at the beginning of the experiment. The norm sample for t h i s form of the test consisted of students i n grades ten, eleven and twelve and the test was found to be of appropriate d i f f i c u l t y l e v e l for students p a r t i c i p a t i n g i n t h i s experiment. The i n t e r n a l consistency c o e f f i c i e n t , K-R 20, for t h i s form of the test normed on grade eleven students was reported to be .84. The concurrent v a l i d i t y c o e f f i c i e n t was defined as the c o r r e l a t i o n with the SCAT-Quantitative test and was reported as .70 for a grade eleven sample and .76 f c r a grade twelve sample. The test consisted of f i f t y items and was administered i n seventy minutes. For the t o t a l sample of sixty-three students, the mean was 31.1, the standard deviation was 7.6 and the c o e f f i c i e n t of i n t e r n a l consistency, K-R 20, was .85. A l o g i c a l analysis of the test items seems to suggest that higher-order mental processes, such as problem solving, were being measured and not only r e c a l l of information or a p p l i c a t i o n of algorithms. The l a t t e r two processes were emphasized i n the prelesson. 91 State-Trait anxiety inventory. The State-Trait Anxiety Inventory (STAI) was u t i l i z e d i n order to measure both A-State and A-Trait (Spielberger e_t al_. , 1970). The twenty-item A-State and A - T r a i t four point L i k e r t scales were administered at the beginning of the experiment. In addition, a short form of the A-State scale (O'Neil, 1972), consisting of the f i v e items with the highest item-remainder correlations i n the STAI normative sample were given during the prelesson and during the main lesson. These f i v e items were administered by the computer during the CAI lesson. The twenty-item A-State and A - T r a i t scales have been shown to have high value of r e l i a b i l i t y , i . e . Cronbach's alpha, and evidence of construct v a l i d i t y has been provided (Spielberger et a l . , 1970). O'Neil (1972) reported r e l i a b i l i t y (alpha) c o e f f i c i e n t s for the five-item scale ranging from .83 to .93 i n seventeen administrations. The test s t a t i s t i c s for t h i s study are reported i n Table 6. 92 TABLE 6 ANXIETY TEST DATA Test Mean S.D.

The grading scheme used for the prelesson was discussed e a r l i e r . A student received a grade of 0, 1, or 2 on a single i n s t r u c t i o n a l unit and there were nine i n s t r u c t i o n a l u n i t s i n the lesson. The prelesson was considered as a test of a student's knowledge and a b i l i t y to learn the prerequisites required for the main lesson as taught by the computer. The prelesson data are given i n Tables 7 and 8.

Table 7 indicates that the prelesson was not d i f f i c u l t for t h i s group since the mean score for the t o t a l group was 14.4 on a possible score of 18. The l a s t two items were the only ones which the students found d i f f i c u l t . Main lesson. The main lesson was considered as a measure of a student's a b i l i t y to perform on a CAI terminal. The student's errors and latencies were recorded for subsequent ana l y s i s . Each i n s t r u c t i o n a l unit was also considered as a test item with possible scores of 0 or 1. The student was 94 assigned a value cf 0 for an item i f the computer provided the correct answer before he answered c o r r e c t l y . If the student answered c o r r e c t l y before being given the answer, he was assigned a grade of 1 f o r that item. Analysis information for the main lesson regarded as a test i s given below i n Table 9. Table 9 indicates that the mean score f o r the group was 10.9 out of a possible 15. This finding shows that most students were able to produce the correct answer before the computer d i d so, and the lesson was a r e l a t i v e l y e f f e c t i v e i n s t r u c t o r . TABLE 9 MAIN LESSON DATA Sample Size Number of Items Mean Standard Deviation 63 15 10. 9 2.0 CHAPTER IV ANALYSIS AND RESULTS Method of Analysis In t h i s study two phases were involved i n the analysis of data. The f i r s t phase consisted of a regression analysis procedure designed to test the research hypotheses stated i n Chapter II. The second phase involved some post hoc analysis of the data i n order to gain a d d i t i o n a l insight into the r e s u l t s of the f i r s t phase as well as to examine several a l t e r n a t i v e questions. This second phase involved the examination of i n t e r c o r r e l a t i o n s f o r a variety of measures, which were examined for the t o t a l group as well as separately for the three experimental groups. Graphs of latencies and errors f o r the main lesson were also examined for meaningful information. The regression analysis approach employed fo r t h i s analysis has been described by many writers (Bottenberg and Ward, 1963; Cohen, 1968; Overall and Spiegal, 1970; Walberg, 1971; Kaufman and Sweet, 1973). The advantages of this'method of data analysis over the conventional ANOVA approach have been discussed i n d e t a i l by these writers. 95 9 6 Cronbach and Snow (1969) recommended the use of the regression analysis method for testing i n t e r a c t i o n terms i n ATI studies. Separate stepwise univariate regression analyses were performed for each of the three c r i t e r i o n variables i n order to test the f i r s t four hypotheses in t h i s study. Hypothesis 5 was tested using a regression analysis approach with posttest score as the dependent variable. The proportion of errors, average latency and learner c h a r a c t e r i s t i c s defined e a r l i e r served as independent variables. This analysis technique permitted the learner variables and treatment e f f e c t s to be s t a t i s t i c a l l y removed ( p a r t i a l l e d ) i n order to test the r e l a t i o n s h i p s between posttest score and the other two variables. A l l analyses were performed at the University of B r i t i s h Columbia Computing Centre. The regression analyses were performed using the MULTIVAR program (Finn, 1968) and the BMD02R program (Dixon, 1968). The means and i n t e r -c o r r e l a t i o n s were calculated with the STRIP program av a i l a b l e at the Computing Centre (Seagraves, 1971). The p r o b a b i l i t y levels (p) for s i g n i f i c a n c e of the F - r a t i o s were calculated using the l o c a l FPROB program (Dempster, 1969). A l l hypotheses having a s i g n i f i c a n c e l e v e l of less than .07 were used for substantive discussion and i n t e r p r e t a t i o n of the 97 r e s u l t s . The hypotheses given at the end of Chapter III were translated into s t a t i s t i c a l terms. The symbols used to represent the variables i n t h i s study are given i n Table 11. Results of Analysis - Means Table 10 shows the means of the variables observed in the study for the t o t a l group and for the treatment groups taken separately. Although the difference between the means on most of the variables was not s t a t i s t i c a l l y s i g n i f i c a n t , a consistent pattern was evident. The treatment groups were ranked i n the hypothesized order (T-^>^2i> T3) o n t l i e posttest scores, t o t a l errors, t o t a l responses, proportion of e r r o r s , t o t a l correct i n main lesson, number taking optional l i m i t section, enjoyment and A-State main lesson. The main lesson latency v/as the exception, with the T^ group having a higher average response latency than the other two groups. The r e s u l t s suggest that with the exception of latency, the c o r r e c t i o n a l feedback variable had an e f f e c t on performance and learning i n the expected d i r e c t i o n , but • that a more d e f i n i t i v e r e s u l t may have been obtained over a longer period of time or with a more d i f f i c u l t lesson. The time of the CAI experimental session was coded '1' for the mornihg (9:00 a.m.), '2' for evening (5:30 p.m.) and '3' for the weekend session. The means indicate that the three treatment groups were well balanced i n each session except that the students i n the t h i r d treatment group ( T 3 ) attended s l i g h t l y more experimental sessions ( 2) i n the morning and the T 2 group attended the least sessions i n the morning.

The independent variables i n these equations r e f l e c t the factors which 101 this investigator considered as important i n this study. An ordering l o g i c was defined i n testing the terms i n the equations i n a stepwise manner (Overall and Spiegal, 1970). The l o g i c used involved entering learner c h a r a c t e r i s t i c terms f i r s t into the regression equation followed by treatment terms and then i n t e r a c t i o n terms. This means that treatment and i n t e r a c t i o n e f f e c t s were tested with the e f f e c t of learner c h a r a c t e r i s t i c s being c o n t r o l l e d s t a t i s t i c a l l y .

The students' mathematical a b i l i t y (X3) was a highly s i g n i f i c a n t variable (p<.001) in explaining posttest r e s u l t s . The main lesson A-State l e v e l ( X 5 ) was s t a t i s t i c a l l y s i g n i f i c a n t , (p ^*. 06 ) c o n t r o l l i n g for the previous two v a r i a b l e s . This finding would seem to indicate that a high l e v e l of anxiety may have existed even a f t e r the students completed the main lesson on the terminal. This was not surprising since the posttest was written immediately at the completion of the main lesson. A main lesson A-State-by-treatment i n t e r a c t i o n (p<^.04) was obtained for posttest scores. In t h i s case, the e f f e c t of anxiety (A-State) was d i f f e r e n t f o r subjects i n T-L as compared with T 2 ( X -^X^ ) .

The reader should note that a c o r r e l a t i o n c o e f f i c i e n t which i s s t a t i s t i c a l l y s i g n i f i c a n t provides' a d d i t i o n a l insight into the data but does not allow causal inferences to be made. The extremely high c o r r e l a t i o n s (> .95) of proportion of errors (4) with t o t a l errors (2) and with t o t a l responses (3) suggests that e i t h e r of the l a t t e r two variables could have been used as c r i t e r i o n measures i n place of proportion of errors (2 divided by 3) with no important differences i n r e s u l t s . The extremely high c o r r e l a t i o n (.94) between latency for the f i r s t response of an i n s t r u c t i o n a l unit i n the prelesson (14) and t o t a l latency for thct i n s t r u c t i o n a l unit (15) indicates that either of these two measures could have been used as independent variables i n the experiment. The t o t a l latency (15) was actually used. S i m i l a r l y , the high c o r r e l a t i o n (.81) between f i r s t time latency (9) i n the main lesson and t o t a l latency (10) indicates that either variable could have been used as a c r i t e r i o n v a r i a b l e . The t o t a l latency was a c t u a l l y used. 116 The r e s u l t s i n Table 17 show that mathematical a b i l i t y (16) i s the most important variable. This variable (16) i s correlated s i g n i f i c a n t l y with posttest (1), errors (2,4,5), latency i n the prelesson (14, 15) and latency i n the main lesson (9, 10). At one point i n the main lesson the student was asked the question, "Do you understand?" The c o r r e l a t i o n between the response to t h i s question (6) and time to answer the question (7) was s i g n i f i c a n t (-.58) which indicated that people who answered "yes" took less time to respond. A s i g n i f i c a n t c o r r e l a t i o n (-.35) was found between the main lesson A-State (21) and the students' enjoyment of the lesson (11) as measured by a question at the end, 'Did you enjoy t h i s method of learning?" Lower A-State l e v e l was rela t e d to more enjoyment of the CAI experience. A p o s i t i v e c o r r e l a t i o n (.33) was found between proportion of errors (4) and whether the students went through the optional section on l i m i t s (8). Students with a higher proportion of errors tended to opt for taking the l i m i t section during the main lesson. Surprisingly, there was no r e l a t i o n s h i p found between t r a i t anxiety, A-Trait (18) as measured i n the f i r s t t e s t i n g session, and the state anxiety, A-State during the prelesson (20) or the main lesson (21). However, a s i g n i f i c a n t l i n e a r r e l a t i o n s h i p (.38) was found between A- T r a i t and the five- i t e m A-State score (19) measured on the DAY 1 paper and pen c i l test. Table 18 i n Appendix H l i s t s a comparison of co r r e l a t i o n c o e f f i c i e n t s between selected variables f o r the three treatment groups considered separately. The Chi-square value indicates whether the three c o r r e l a t i o n c o e f f i c i e n t s are s i g n i f i c a n t l y d i f f e r e n t at the"five percent l e v e l . The only s t a t i s t i c a l l y s i g n i f i c a n t f i n d i n g was the c o r r e l a t i o n between posttest score and the t o t a l number of main lesson correct responses given by the student before being given the answer by the computer. A p o s i t i v e c o r r e l a t i o n (> .55) was found for the two groups receiving feedback information (T-^ and T 2 ) but no r e l a t i o n s h i p (r = .07) f o r the group receiving no feedback information ( T 3 ) . The graph i n figure 8 i l l u s t r a t e s the average number of errors made by the t o t a l group on each i n s t r u c t i o n a l unit i n the main lesson. The re s u l t s indicate the students made r e l a t i v e l y few errors during the main lesson. The subjects averaged more than two errors only on one i n s t r u c t i o n a l unit (9) and on units 12, 13 and 14, the students averaged almost two errors. This f i n d i n g indicate 118 that the c o r r e c t i o n a l feedback variable may not have been potent enough to s i g n i f i c a n t l y d i f f e r e n t i a t e between the T and T_ treatment groups. The reason for t h i s i s that 1 ^ feedback was r a r e l y received from more than one or two wrong answer categories before the computer provided the answer to the student. Also, i n some cases many students provided the correct response without making an error, as i n units 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 10 and 11. However, a higher error rate program would have been se l f - d e f e a t i n g i n terms of the goal of e f f i c i e n c y i n learning. Another trend was noted i n that the d i f f i c u l t y l e v e l s of the i n s t r u c t i o n a l units were not evenly d i s t r i b u t e d since the lesson f l u c t u a t e d several times from easy to d i f f i c u l t . The graph i n Figure 9 shows the average number of errors made on each i n s t r u c t i o n a l unit f o r the three treatment groups taken separately. On the more d i f f i c u l t units such as 7, 9 and 12, the s u p e r i o r i t y of the T^ group was evident. On i n s t r u c t i o n a l unit 9, which was the only unit where a l l groups averaged more than two errors, the ranking of average number of errors was as hypothesized-( T ^ T 2 Tu ). This f i n d i n g suggests that the r e s u l t s expected i n the study may have been more pronounced i f the error rate of the lesson had been higher. 119 Graph of Errors on In s t r u c t i o n a l Units for Combined Groups 120 1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 11 12 13 14 15 Instr u c t i o n a l Unit Figure 9 Graph of Errors on Instructional Units for Ti T 2, T3 121 The graph i n figure 10 shows the average t o t a l response latency on each i n s t r u c t i o n a l unit f o r the three treatment groups. Although no obvious trend seemed to have occurred, one clear f i n d i n g emerged. The subjects in the second treatment group (T 2) took more time to respond on nearly a l l d i f f i c u l t i n s t r u c t i o n a l units from the seventh unit onward. For example, examining i n s t r u c t i o n a l units 7, 9, 12, 13 and 14, the T 2 subjects had larger average latency values. As noted e a r l i e r , the T2 group attended the fewest morning sessions and so i t i s possible that a f t e r a day of classes, a fatigue e f f e c t became predominant i n the second half of the main lesson. The graph i n f i g u r e 11 shows the A-State lev e l s for the three treatment groups at d i f f e r e n t points i n time during the study. The graph i l l u s t r a t e s that on DAY 1 and during the prelesson, the A-State l e v e l of T 2 subjects was higher than that of T^ subjects who, i n turn, had higher A-State l e v e l s than the T subjects. This seems to indicate that the T 2 subjects were more anxious than the others. However, during the main lesson, the r e l a t i v e A-State l e v e l s were a l l s i g n i f i c a n t l y higher and the ranking i n this case was as expected ( T - ^ 1^ .^T^ ). A group of f i f t e e n subjects reviewed a portion of the main lesson and was presented with the A-State instrument 122 twice. Six subjects were i n the group, f i v e were i n the T 2 group and four were i n the T3 group. The mean A-State score of these students the f i r s t time through the . main lesson was 13.1. Afte r reviewing a section of the lesson and repeating the A-State questionnaire, t h e i r A-State l e v e l was 14.6. This indicates that A-State l e v e l was increasing with time at this stage of the experiment and was probably quite high when the students wrote the posttest. Unfortunately, the A-State l e v e l was not obtained during the posttest but the fatigue e f f e c t evident f o r the T 2 group i n terms of latencies may have caused a reversal of the r e l a t i v e order of A-State for the three groups. It i s evident that more d i f f i c u l t items would have increased the A-State l e v e l even more and probably would have better separated the three groups i n terms of anxiety. 123 \ 1 1 1 1 1 1 1 1 ) 1 1 1 ' I 1' L 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 11 12 13 14 15 I n s t r u c t i o n a l Unit Figure 10 Graph of Latencies on I n s t r u c t i o n a l Units 124 Paper and - Prelesson Main Pe n c i l Day 2 Lesson Day 1 Day 2 Time of Testing Figure 11 Graph of A-State Levels During Experiment ,125 TABLE 16 AVERAGE NUMBER OF RESPONSES IN EACH RESPONSE CLASS FOR MAIN LESSON Response Average Number of Responses Class T l T2 T3 • HELP 0.8 °2.9 2.6 Correct Answer 11.6 10.6 10. 4 Wrong Answer 1 3.5 3. 9 3.6 Wrong Answer 2 3.2 3.1 3. 9 Wrong Answer 3 1.3 1.5 1. 2 NOMATCH 5.4 5.8 6.3 The r e s u l t s shown i n Table 16 indicate that the T^ group asked for help on the average less than once i n the main lesson. This was s i g n i f i c a n t l y fewer times than the other two groups (T 2, T^). The average number of correct responses made were ranked i n the expected order, although the differences between the three groups were not s i g n i x i c a n t . It i s inter e s t i n g to note that as less c o r r e c t i o n a l feedback was provided from T-^ to T^, the number of unanticipated (NOMATCH) responses increased s l i g h t l y . The average number of unanticipated responses for the f i f t e e n unit main lesson was approximately six. This i s a very respectable f i g u r e i n view of the f a c t that many of the errors were typing or notation errors. Therefore, l i m i t a t i o n s of the CAI author language did not seriously hamper the recognition of student responses i n th i s experiment. A f a i r balance was achieved for the wrong answer classes except that few responses f e l l into the t h i r d c l a s s . Some improvement could be made here.in better a n t i c i p a t i n g student incorrect responses. Summary of S t a t i s t i c a l Results The regression analysis produced several findings. The r e s u l t s of the posttest analysis indicate that mathematical a b i l i t y (p<^.001) was s i g n i f i c a n t i n pre d i c t i n g immediate learning. However, when the e f f e c t of t h i s variable and the other variables stated i n Hypothesis 5 was removed, the proportion of errors f o r the main lesson was also s i g n i f i c a n t fp^.07) i n predicting posttest r e s u l t s . The expected difference between the three treatment groups receiving d i f f e r e n t types of c o r r e c t i o n a l feedback was not observed on the posttest. An unexpected f i n d i n g occurred i n that the main lesson A-State Jevel was 127 s i g n i f i c a n t i n p r e d i c t i n g posttest performance (p<^.06) and an A-State-by-treatment i n t e r a c t i o n was found (p<".04) in p r e d i c t i n g posttest scores. The e f f e c t of state anxiety on posttest performance was d i f f e r e n t for students i n the T^ group compared to students i n the T 2 group. Graphical a n a l y s i s showed that a s i g n i f i c a n t decrement i n posttest performance occurred when A-State increased, but only f o r the T 2 group. The r e s u l t s of the regression analysis f o r proportion of e r r o r s indicated that mathematical a b i l i t y ( p ^ . O l ) and prelesson score (p <~\ 01} were both s t a t i s t i c a l l y s i g n i f i c a n t . Also, the A-State l e v e l was s i g n i f i c a n t (p .02) i n p r e d i c t i n g the main lesson proportion of e r r o r s . No s i g n i f i c a n t i n t e r a c t i o n s were observed. The expected treatment e f f e c t was observed. A s i g n i f i c a n t d i f f e r e n c e i n proportion of errors ( p 0 3 ) was found between the T 2 and T^ treatment groups. This d i f f e r e n c e was i n the expected d i r e c t i o n , i . e . the T^ group had a higher proportion of e r r o r s than the T 2 group. The r e s u l t s o:' the regression analysis for average response latency i n d i c a t e d that, once aqain, mathematical a b i l i t y was highly s i g n i f i c a n t (p <-^. 001) i n p r e d i c t i n g performance. The A-State l e v e l that was reached during the prelesson was s i g n i f i c a n t in p r e d i c t i n g response latency 128 during the main lesson (p<.03). As would be expected, the prelesson average latency was s t a t i s t i c a l l y s i g n i f i c a n t (p<^.002) i n pre d i c t i n g the main lesson average latency. The expected treatment e f f e c t was not observed since no s i g n i f i c a n t d i f ferences were found between the three treatment groups on response latency. However, the expected A-State-by-treatment i n t e r a c t i o n for latency was observed (P<-04). The e f f e c t of state anxiety on response latency was d i f f e r e n t for students i n the T2 group compared to students in the T3 group. Graphical analysis showed that a s i g n i f i c a n t increase i n average response latency occurred with an increase i n state anxiety f o r the T3 treatment group only. The post hoc analysis provided some useful information for i n t e r p r e t a t i o n of the r e s u l t s and suggested some other questions. The table of means further indicated that the T-, group attended the fewest morning sessions and the T,, group attended the most. This f i n d i n g suggests that the longer latencies may have been due to a fatigue e f f e c t . This would have been caused by the s l i g h t predominance of evening sessions f o r the T2 group. An i n t e r e s t i n g f i n d i n g was the s i g n i f i c a n t c o r r e l a t i o n (r = - .35) between enjoyment of the main lesson and le v e l 129 of A-State. As might be expected, the low A-State students enjoyed this method of learning more than the high A-State students. The s i g n i f i c a n t c o r r e l a t i o n between proportion of errors and whether or not students had the optional l i m i t section (r = .33) suggests that students r e a l i z e d when they required extra assistance and that, therefore, more learner control could be b u i l t into the CAI lessons. An examination of the HELP and NOMATCH options showed that the T^ group asked f o r he.lp s i g n i f i c a n t l y fewer times than the other two groups (T 2, T^). This f i n d i n g again provides support f o r more learner control of i n s t r u c t i o n . The number of unrecognized responses (NOMATCH) were ranked as expected (T^ T 2 T 3 ) . Therefore, increased information i n the c o r r e c t i o n a l feedback seems to provide a p a r t i a l s olution to the problem of a n t i c i p a t i n g a l l possible incorrect responses The ta.ble of means showed that the three treatment groups d i f f e r e d on nearly a l l of the important variables i n the d i r e c t i o n expected, but that the e f f e c t s were not s t a t i s t i c a l l y , s i g n i f i c a n t . The graphs of errors showed that the program had a low error rate despite e f f o r t s by the experimenter to u t i l i z e a sample that would f i n d the material d i f f i c u l t . 130 Only one i n s t r u c t i o n a l unit had an average of more than two errors for the t o t a l group. It i s i n t e r e s t i n g to note that a large difference was found i n the expected d i r e c t i o n i n terms of errors on this i n s t r u c t i o n a l u n i t among the three groups. The graph of latencies indicated that the units were uneven i n d i f f i c u l t y and that the T 2 group took consistently longer on the i n s t r u c t i o n a l units i n the second half of the main lesson. The graph of A-State over time indicated that the expected pattern i n anxiety d i d occur but that the difference between the three groups was not as pronounced as expected. The t o t a l group, however, did increase i n A-State during the main lesson, as expected. CHAPTER V SUMMARY, CONCLUSIONS AND RECOMMENDATIONS Summary of Study This study was undertaken to investigate the use of computer-assisted i n s t r u c t i o n as an i n s t r u c t i o n a l laboratory. The concept of an i n s t r u c t i o n a l l o g i c was defined as an algorithm followed by the computer program for each i n s t r u c t i o n a l unit. This step-by-step l o g i c was repeated for each i n s t r u c t i o n a l unit but with d i f f e r e n t content., This procedure permitted the c o n t r o l l e d manipulation of the variable of c o r r e c t i o n a l feedback. Three forms of corr e c t i o n a l feedback were defined by varying the information content of the feedback. These were response-sensitive c o r r e c t i o n a l feedback, response-insensitive c o r r e c t i o n a l feedback and no co r r e c t i o n a l feedback (only that the answer was i n c o r r e c t ) . The i n t e r a c t i o n of c o r r e c t i o n a l feedback with selected learner c h a r a c t e r i s t i c s was examined as y/ell. These learner t r a i t s were mathematical a b i l i t y , p r e r e q u i s i t e knowledge and state anxiety. The e f f e c t of co r r e c t i o n a l feedback and i t s .131 132 i n t e r a c t i o n with these variables was examined. Subjects of the study were a representative sample of sixty-three preservice elementary school teachers from f i v e sections of a mathematics course given i n a large education f a c u l t y . These subjects were randomly assigned to the three treatment conditions, although they selected the CAI experimental periods i n which they would p a r t i c i p a t e , The test of mathematical a b i l i t y used was the Cooperative Sequential Test of Educational Progress, Mathematics Form 2A (STEP). The state anxiety instrument used was the State-Trait Anxiety Inventory (STAI) and the f i v e item short form used by O'Neil (1972) was administered twice. The eighteen item posttest was constructed by the experimenter and the measure of prerequisite knowledge used was a nine item prelesson with a possible mark of 0, 1 or•2 on each item. The mathematics lesson was a top i c i n introductory calculus dealing with the concept of d e r i v a t i v e . The topic was treated from a physical point of view, using concepts of distance, speed and time to i l l u s t r a t e the mathematical concepts. The main objectives were to show that the de r i v a t i v e i s a l i m i t and to show how to use t h i s l i m i t d e f i n i t i o n to ca l c u l a t e the derivative of a function at a point. 133 The CAI lesson was programmed using an author language developed by the experimenter as a vehicle for implementing the i n s t r u c t i o n a l l o g i c and varying the c o r r e c t i o n a l feedback. The language i s l i m i t e d i n use but has the advantage of requiring, e s s e n t i a l l y no computer experience of an i n s t r u c t i o n a l designer. The main l i m i t a t i o n of the language as implemented at the University of B r i t i s h Columbia i s the cost, which severely l i m i t e d the sample size i n t h i s experiment. The r e s u l t s of the study were generally i n the expected d i r e c t i o n but the e f f e c t s were not as pronounced as had been hypothesized. The most important f i n d i n g was the s i g n i f i c a n t difference i n proportion of errors on the main lesson between the T 2 and T 3 groups. The importance of t h i s f i n d i n g was then increased by the s i g n i f i c a n t r e l a t i o n s h i p found between immediate learning and proportion of errors with the e f f e c t of learner t r a i t s and treatment e f f e c t s s t a t i s t i c a l l y removed. The most e f f e c t i v e variable i n predicting performance in the experiment was mathematical a b i l i t y and i t s e f f e c t was s t a t i s t i c a l l y c o n t r o l l e d when test i n g the e f f e c t of the other variables. Prerequisite knowledge was also important i n p r e d i c t i n g performance and was s t a t i s t i c a l l y c o n t r o l l e d as well. State anxiety was s i g n i f i c a n t i n pr e d i c t i n g 134 response latency but not i n pr e d i c t i n g errors. S i g n i f i c a n t treatment by A-State interactions were observed for posttest and for response latency. The three treatment groups d i f f e r e d i n the expected d i r e c t i o n on most of the important variables but the differences were not s t a t i s t i c a l l y s i g n i f i c a n t . In p a r t i c u l a r , the A-State lev e l s for the three groups were ordered as expected, but the differences were not large enough to cause the hypothesized in t e r a c t i o n s . The r e s u l t s of the study p a r t i a l l y supported the hypothesis of the important r o l e of c o r r e c t i o n a l feedback i n i n s t r u c t i o n and i t s i n t e r a c t i o n with i n d i v i d u a l t r a i t s of the learner. F i n a l l y , the p o s s i b i l i t y of a confounding variable became evident. A fatigue e f f e c t for the T 2 group seemed possible i n l i g h t of the s l i g h t predominance of evening sessions coupled with the larger response latencies for this group. In general, the two goals of t h i s project were attained. A methodology was developed for CAI as an i n s t r u c t i o n a l laboratory and t h i s methodology was used succ e s s f u l l y to perform a c o n t r o l l e d experiment. This experiment provided evidence that c o r r e c t i o n a l feedback leads to improved performance during learning compared with 135 feedback t e l l i n g a student merely that his response i s incorrect. A s i g n i f i c a n t r e l a t i o n s h i p was found between proportion of errors and posttest score which suggests that a number of errors made during a lesson i s a measure that can be used to maximize immediate learning. F i n a l l y , the variable of state anxiety was examined and was found to negatively a f f e c t response latency. Also, state anxiety increased when no c o r r e c t i o n a l feedback was provided to the students as well as when the content became more d i f f i c u l t . This f i n d i n g confirmed the expected r e l a t i o n s h i p between state anxiety and task d i f f i c u l t y . Discussion of Findings Correctional feedback. The c o r r e c t i o n a l feedback variable had some e f f e c t i n t h i s experiment. A s i g n i f i c a n t difference (p^.03) i n proportion of errors was observed between the group receiving response-insensitive c o r r e c t i o n a l feedback (T 2 ) and the group receiving no c o r r e c t i o n a l feedback (T-j). The raw means of the three groups on most of the variables examined i n the study were ranked i n the expected order, i . e . T -^T^^T^. However, the d i f f e r e n c e s were not s t a t i s t i c a l l y s i g n i f i c a n t . The r e s u l t s suggest that the response-insensitive c o r r e c t i o n a l feedback (T?) may be optimal since some hel p f u l information i s provided to the student af t e r an 136 incorrect response but p r i o r analysis of a l l possible responses (and keywords) i s not required. This form of c o r r e c t i o n a l feedback requires f a r less time to prepare by the i n s t r u c t i o n a l programmer and much less computer time and storage i s used. More d e f i n i t i v e r e s u l t s may have been obtained with a lesson having a higher error r a t e , but this would have been self-defeating since the aim of the program was to help the student succeed. These r e s u l t s suggest that i n terms of using CAI i n the schools, programmed i n s t r u c t i o n a l materials can emulate the strategy quite e a s i l y and cheaply. U n t i l e f f e c t i v e response-sensitive feedback can be developed which can be demonstrated to cause improved performance and learning, the use of CAI in the classroom i s not j u s t i f i e d . However, using CAI as an i n s t r u c t i o n a l laboratory permits research to be c a r r i e d out that could not be done using programmed-instructional materials. A-State. As expected, the r e l a t i v e d i f f i c u l t i e s of the three treatment conditions caused corresponding differences i n A-State l e v e l during the lesson. However', these A-State l e v e l s were not s i g n i f i c a n t l y d i f f e r e n t for the three treatment groups. For a l l groups, the A-State l e v e l did increase i n the main lesson compared to the written test and prelesson. Also, a few students i n each group 137 repeated a section and were given the A-State questions again. The mean A-State l e v e l for these twelve students again increased s u b s t a n t i a l l y suggesting that A-State l e v e l s were increasing towards the end of the CAI session. The hypothesized A-State-by-correctional-feedback i n t e r a c t i o n did not occur f o r proportion of errors, but an i n t e r a c t i o n did occur for the other two c r i t e r i o n variables. An increase i n A-State f o r the T3 group (no c o r r e c t i o n a l feedback) was coupled with a s i g n i f i c a n t increase i n response latency. There was no signifi c a n t - r e l a t i o n s h i p between A-State and response latency f o r the T^ and T^ groups. This f i n d i n g again provided evidence i n favor of response-insensitive c o r r e c t i o n a l feedback (T 2) as the optimal condition. An unexpected f i n d i n g occurred for the T 2 group. An increase i n main lesson A-State f o r t h i s giovp was r e l a t e d to a decrease i n posttest performance. Unfortunately, t h i s f i n d i n g i s d i f f i c u l t to in t e r p r e t because the ac tue.l A-State l e v e l during the written posttest was not obtained. It i s possible that these A-State l e v e l s may have be^n s u b s t a n t i a l l y d i f f e r e n t from the main lesson since A-State anxiety l e v e l s were increasing towards the end of the main lesson, as pointed out above. The explanation offered at t h i s point f o r this f i n d i n g i s that a fatigue e f f e c t may have 138 been present and may have affected the T 2 group. The reason f o r th i s statement i s that students i n the T 2 group took consistently longer to respond during the second half of the main lesson and were probably most fatigued. A possible explanation for th i s i s the fa c t that s l i g h t l y more T 2 students took the CAI lesson and posttest after classes i n the evening, despite e f f o r t s by the experimenter to control for this f a c t o r . The main lesson A-State was s i g n i f i c a n t i n pr e d i c t i n g proportion of errors for the t o t a l group. Also, the prelesson A-State was s i g n i f i c a n t (p<.03) i n pre d i c t i n g the main lesson response latency. Therefore, the r e l a t i o n s h i p between anxiety and performance for the whole group was well established i n this study. Surprisingly, no r e l a t i o n s h i p was found between A-Trait and main lesson A-State l e v e l s . Tobias (1973) suggested that i t may be that the variable of anxiety, while useful in other areas, has limi t e d u t i l i t y i n the area of i n d i v i d u a l i z e d i n s t r u c t i o n . The reason f o r th i s statement i s that i n i n d i v i d u a l i z e d i n s t r u c t i o n a l contexts an attempt i s made to minimize d i f f i c u l t y i n order to have a high r a t i o of success. Even when i n s t r u c t i o n a l materials are experimentally a l t e r e d to increase their d i f f i c u l t y , these a l t e r a t i o n s are often 139 i n s u f f i c i e n t to both evoke and maintain l e v e l s of anxiety s u f f i c i e n t to exert s i g n i f i c a n t d e b i l i t a t i n g e f f e c t s on achievement. This may explain the lack of stronger findings i n t h i s p a r t i c u l a r study. Mathematical a b i l i t y . The variable of mathematical a b i l i t y had the most evident e f f e c t i n the study. This variable was highly s i g n i f i c a n t i n predicting immediate learning, proportion of errors and response latency. However, the hypothesized c o r r e c t i o n a l feedback-by-mathematical -abi l i t y i n t e r a c t i o n was not observed for any of the c r i t e r i o n variables. This f i n d i n g suggests that mathematical a b i l i t y may not be a useful variable f o r i n d i v i d u a l i z i n g i n s t r u c t i o n and that more s p e c i f i c a b i l i t i e s known to be important to task performance are required. Prerequisite knowledge. The variable of p r e r e q u i s i t e knowledge, as measured on the prelesson, was found to be s i g n i f i c a n t i n p r e d i c t i n g proportion of errors (p<".01) only. This f i n d i n g i s reasonable since i t would seem that a good predictor of main lesson performance on a CAI lesson during the main lesson would be the performance on CAI prelesson. In l i n e with t h i s reasoning, the prelesson average response latency was s i g n i f i c a n t (p <-•- . 002) i n p r e d i c t i n g the main lesson average response latency. 140 The hypothesized prerequisite knowledge-by-cor r e c t i o n a l feedback i n t e r a c t i o n was not observed for any of the c r i t e r i o n variables. This f i n d i n g seems to have been caused by the lack of variance i n the prelesson scores f o r subjects i n the experiment. Most students already had attained the prereq u i s i t e objectives and the prelesson served merely as a warm-up f o r them, Relationship between process and product. A s i g n i f i c a n t l i n e a r r e l a t i o n s h i p (p^.07) was observed between,the process variable (proportion of errors) and the product variable (immediate learning). No such r e l a t i o n s h i p was observed between response latency and immediate learning. However, there i s some suggestion i n the l i t e r a t u r e (Judd e_t al_. , 1973) that response latency may have an e f f e c t on retention. The above s i g n i f i c a n t r e l a t i o n s h i p was observed a f t e r the e f f e c t of a l l learner variables i n the study and treatment had been s t a t i s t i c a l l y removed ( p a r t i a l l e d out). The f i n d i n g that providing response-insensitive c o r r e c t i o n a l feedback (T 2) i s better than providing no cor r e c t i o n a l feedback (T 3 ) f or reducing proportion of errors and that a s i g n i f i c a n t r e l a t i o n s h i p (negative c o r r e l a t i o n ) e x i s t s between proportion of errors and immediate learning has important implications. The f i n a l goal of the 141 i n s t r u c t i o n i s to maximize the learning product which i s what the student takes with him when he leaves the CAI terminal. The evidence from this study suggests that response-insensitive c o r r e c t i o n a l feedback i s the optimal condition to achieve this goal at the least cost. Post hoc analysis r e s u l t s . The post hoc analysis provided some useful information f o r i n t e r p r e t a t i o n of the r e s u l t s and suggested some further questions. The c o r r e l a t i o n a l analysis also indicated that mathematical a b i l i t y had the strongest e f f e c t i n this experiment. It was noted that a s i g n i f i c a n t c o r r e l a t i o n (r = - . 35) occurred between main lesson A-State and enjoyment of t h i s method of learning. Students with lower A-State lev e l s tended to enjoy the lesson more. Two findings that have implications for future CAI work were: (1) there was a s i g n i f i c a n t c o r r e l a t i o n (r = .33 between proportion of errors and whether or not students chose the optional section on l i m i t s , and (2) the number of students i n each group that had the l i m i t section increased from T^ to T 2 to T^ and the 1^ group asked f o r help s i g n i f i c a n t l y fewer times than the- other two groups. These findings suggest that students r e a l i z e when they require extra assistance and that more learner control of i n s t r u c t i o n could be b u i l t into CAI lessons. 142 The only c o r r e l a t i o n a l c o e f f i c i e n t s i g n i f i c a n t l y d i f f e r e n t for the three groups taken separately was the c o r r e l a t i o n between posttest score and number of main lesson correct responses given by the student before the computer provided the answer. The c o r r e l a t i o n (r> .55) for the T 1 and T^ groups suggests that students who f i n d the correct response themselves during the lesson w i l l perform better on the posttest. This r e s u l t suggests that c o r r e c t i o n a l feedback information i s an important part of this learning process. This f i n d i n g also r a i s e s the question about the motivational properties of co r r e c t i o n a l feedback since no s i g n i f i c a n t c o r r e l a t i o n was found when correc t i o n a l feedback was not provided ( T 3 ) . The table of means indicates that the three treatment groups d i f f e r e d on nearly a l l of the important variables i n the expected d i r e c t i o n , but that e f f e c t s were not s t a t i s t i c a l l y s i g n i f i c a n t . The variables r e f e r r e d to are posttest score, t o t a l e r r o r s , t o t a l responses, proportion of e r r o r s , t o t a l correct, number of students taking optional l i m i t section, enjoyment and main lesson A-Sta^e l e v e l . The graphs of errors show that the program had a low error rate despite e f f o r t s by the experimenter to u t i l i z e a sample of students who would make many errors. Only one i n s t r u c t i o n a l unit had an average of more tha.n 143 two errors for the t o t a l group. This i n s t r u c t i o n a l unit produced large differences i n the expected d i r e c t i o n between the three groups, suggesting that a more d i f f i c u l t lesson may have produced more d e f i n i t i v e r e s u l t s . A more d i f f i c u l t lesson could be designed by dealing with more content i n each i n s t r u c t i o n a l unit than was dealt with i n this study. The graph of latencies shows that the i n s t r u c t i o n a l units were uneven i n d i f f i c u l t y and that the T 2 group took consistently longer on the units i n the second half of the main lesson, thereby producing a fatigue e f f e c t that may have affected the r e s u l t s . Limitations of the Study A most apparent l i m i t a t i o n of t h i s study, and other studies i n the area of CAI at the present time, i s the cost f a c t o r . This factor was the major constraint in l i m i t i n g the sample size i n th i s study to sixty-three students. Unless an i n s t i t u t i o n i s w i l l i n g to invest funds i n t h i s type of research, i t i s probably wiser to l i m i t CAI research to i n s t i t u t i o n s having the s p e c i a l i z e d hardware and software f a c i l i t i e s required for e f f i c i e n t CAI. The biggest d i f f i c u l t y f o r the students seemed to be the notation used by the computer. S i n c i a standard typewriter b a l l was used, symbols f o r change ( A ) and a 144 normal d i v i s i o n sign could not be used. Also, variables could not be r a i s e d to a power using the usual notation. An examination of the students work sheets indicated that they often did their c a l c u l a t i o n s using their own notation and then entered the answer using the computer's cumbersome notation. Therefore, the hardware l i m i t a t i o n s probably had an e f f e c t on the experimental r e s u l t s . Bork and Sherman (1971) also noted t h i s l i m i t a t i o n . The students i n the experiment were preservice elementary school teachers and so the g e n e r a l i z a b i l i t y of the r e s u l t s i s l i m i t e d to t h i s or s i m i l a r populations of students. The content of the CAI lesson dealt with a well structured mathematical algorithm which was derived i n the lesson and applied to concrete examples. Since content may act to moderate the e f f e c t s of other variables, the g e n e r a l i z a b i l i t y of the r e s u l t s i s l i m i t e d to material having similar structure. An obvious l i m i t a t i o n was the short term nature of the experiment. The differences that d i d occur may not have been observed over a longer period of time. Also, a novelty e f f e c t was c e r t a i n l y present and may have affected the r e s u l t s . Once again, t h i s i s a cost l i m i t a t i o n of much of the present CAI research because the time required to develop a f u l l term CAI course i s enormous fo r a single person. 1 4 5 An unexpected fatigue e f f e c t seemed to have affected the r e s u l t s . This e f f e c t was not observed i n the p i l o t group of college students i n Montreal but seemed to be a f a c t o r i n t h i s study, p a r t i c u l a r l y during the posttest. Recommendations for Further Research Although some treatment e f f e c t s were observed i n t h i s study, these were not d e f i n i t i v e due to the lack of large enough differences i n treatment between the T^ and T 2 groups. A study similar to the present one should be conducted with a more d i f f i c u l t lesson and t h i s could be done by increasing the material treated i n each i n s t r u c t i o n a l u n i t . An attempt should be made to design a longer term study where a student would come more often to the CAI terminal, but f o r less time i n order to minimize fatigue e f f e c t s . Possibly a team e f f o r t would best f a c i l i t a t e t h i s type of study. The organizational scheme given i n Chapter I generates many questions. The independent variables may have an e f f e c t on retention and transfer, and these should also serve as c r i t e r i o n variables for further studies. Other learner variables should be examined, such as motivational variables and verba.l aptitude. These should come from an adequate p r i o r conceptual analysis of the 146 treatment. Other CAI lesson variables should be studied, such as types of branching and degree of learner control. Similar studies u t i l i z i n g d i f f e r e n t populations, p a r t i c u l a r l y elementary and secondary school students, would c e r t a i n l y be desirable as would be studies i n a variety of subject areas. This would increase the g e n e r a l i z a b i l i t y of the r e s u l t s . A CRT (graphics) terminal would possibly reduce the fatigue e f f e c t i n further studies. An attempt should be made to assess the e f f e c t s of a vari e t y of CAI terminal types. It has been noted that sex may be an important variable i n anxiety studies. Further studies should attempt to look at the e f f e c t of t h i s variable. F i n a l Comment As with many other studies, the present one had weaknesses and produced some unanticipated r e s u l t s . However, a major goal of the study was achieved: the demonstration that CAT i s a powerful and valuable means to examine i n s t r u c t i o n f o r the purpose of producing a s c i e n t i f i c a l l y - b a s e d theory of i n s t r u c t i o n . It i s hoped that t h i s study w i l l serve as an example of the power of the computer and that others w i l l accept the challenge of overcoming i t s l i m i t a t i o n s .

APPENDIX A User's Guide for CAI Author Language Source L i s t i n g of Program This program i s written i n FORTRAN IV and requires a minimum of computer knowledge and experience on the part of the user. Introduction A lesson consists of a series of i n s t r u c t i o n a l units with each unit having the form shown on the next page i n f i gure 1. These i n s t r u c t i o n a l units may be presented to the student i n a sequential manner or i n an order determined i n advance by the lesson designer. A t y p i c a l lesson could take the form shown i n fi g u r e 2.

This comment always begins the unit and w i l l contain a question to the student. SIX cards maximum. Last card must contain a $END i n c o l . 77-80. CARD 4 Col. 1-80: Any comment that the lesson designer wishes to have the computer make to che student i f the student asks f o r help. THREE cards maximum. Last card mu.^ t contain a $END i n c o l . 77-80. 160 CARD 5 Col. 1-10: The f i r s t keyword accepted as correct answer. Should begin in c o l . 1 and end with a $ sign. Col.11-20: The second keyword accepted as correct answer. Should begin in c o l . 11 and end with a $ sign. Col.21-30, 31-40, 41-50, 51-60, 61-70, 71-80: Other keywords accepted as correct answer. Should begin i n appropriate column and end with a $ sign. The number of keywords on this card should be the same as the number indicated in c o l . 4 of card 2. CARD 6 Cel. 1-80: Any comment that the lesson designer wishes to have the computer make to the student i f ; (1) the student responds c o r r e c t l y , i . e . response wishes a keyword on l a s t card, (2) the student asks for help more than once, (3) the student responds more than once to the same wrong answer class, (4) the student's response i s not recognized more than twice. FIVE cards maximum. Last card must contain a $END i n c o l . 77-80. This card may also be a GOTO command. See l a s t section. CARD 7 Col. 1-10: F i r s t keyword accepted as wrong answer.' Should begin in c o l 1 and end with a $ sign. Col.11-80: Same as on card 5. Other keywords accepted as wrong answer. Number of keywords on th i s card should be the same as the number indicated in c o l . 6 of card 2. 161 CARD 8 Col. 1-80: Any comment that the lesson designer wishes to have the computer make to the student i f his response matches one of the keywords given on card 7. FIVE cards maximum. Last card must contain a $END i n c o l . 77-80. This card may also be a GOTO command. See l a s t section. CARD 9 Same form as card 7 CARD 10 Same form as card 8 CARD 11 Same form as card 7 CARD 12 Same form as card 8 The t o t a l number of keyword cards ( i . e . cards 5, 7, 9, 11) must be the same as the numbers i n c o l . 2 of card 2. This number i s limi t e d to a minimum of one and a maximum of four. Note: In order to construct a lesson having more than t h i r t y i n s t r u c t i o n a l units, s p e c i a l techniques must be used. See the author for d e t a i l s . GOTC Command Branching to any point i n the i n s t r u c t i o n a l lesson i s possible by using a GOTO command. This command may replace any comment card ( 5 ) such as cards 6, 8, 10 or 12. If an i n s t r u c t i o n a l unit has been presented twice to the student, a GOTO command to that i n s t r u c t i o n a l unit w i l l be ignored and the computer w i l l proceed to the next question. 162 A GOTO command must begin i n c o l . 1 and has the form GOTOXX where XX i s the i n s t r u c t i o n a l unit number, r i g h t -j u s t i f i e d , where the program w i l l branch i f that response class i s chosen by the student. System Commands The Michigan Terminal System (MTS) i s currently in use at the University of B r i t i s h Columbia. The user should create a desk f i l e to store the i n s t r u c t i o n a l program, e.g. CAI. The CAI program may then be run by entering the following commands, s t a r t i n g i n column 1: $RUN CAI 5=LESSON 9=*MSOURCE oi;fSTiON no.

The s t a t i s t i c s section has been removed. Modifications have been made so that the program follows the lo g i c of the pretest - template. Precautions have been taken to insure that the student cannot "sneak" through a question, i n f a c t , he may be caught i n a loop i f he refuses to follow the in s t r u c t i o n s given to him. The l o g i c i s changed so that a l l NOMATCH answere are channelled to the f i r s t wrong answer cl a s s . This means that comments which the student receives i f his answer matches a key word i n the f i r s t wrong answer class w i l l also be given i f h i s answer i s not recognized. The l o g i c used here allows for easier coding of lessons. It i s usue*,l to use only two answer classes, a correct class with a l l acceptable keywords and a wrorig c l a s s with one keyword i s only required since NOMATCH answers go to th i s class anyway.

Description | This study was undertaken to investigate the use of computer-assisted instruction as an instructional laboratory. The concept of an instructional logic was defined as an algorithm followed by the computer program for each instructional unit. This step-by-step logic was repeated for each instructional unit but with different content. This procedure permitted the controlled manipulation of the variable of correctional feedback. Three forms of correctional feedback were defined by varying the information content of the feedback. These were response-sensitive correctional feedback, response-insensitive correctional feedback and no correctional feedback (only that the answer was incorrect). The interaction of correctional feedback with selected learner characteristics was examined as well, These learner traits were mathematical ability, prerequisite knowledge and state anxiety. The effect of correctional feedback and its interaction with these variables was examined. Subjects of the study were a representative sample of sixty-three preservice elementary school teachers from five sections of a mathematics course given in a large education faculty. These subjects were randomly assigned to the three treatment conditions, although they selected the CAI experimental periods in which they would participate. The test of mathematical ability used was the Cooperative Sequential Test of Educational Progress, Mathematics Form 2A (STEP). The state anxiety instrument used was the State-Trait Anxiety Inventory (STAI) and the five item short form used by O'Neil (1972) was administered twice. The eighteen item posttest was constructed by the experimenter and the measure of prerequisite knowledge used was a nine item prelesson with a possible mark of 0, 1 or 2 on each item. The mathematics lesson was a topic in introductory calculus dealing with the concept of derivative. The topic was treated from a physical point of view, using concepts of distance, speed and time to illustrate the mathematical concepts. The main objectives were to show that the derivative is a limit and to show how to use this limit definition to calculate the derivative of a function at a point. The CAI lesson was programmed using an author language developed by the experimenter as a vehicle for implementing the instructional logic and varying the correctional feedback. The language is limited in use but has the advantage of requiring essentially no computer experience of an instructional designer. The main limitation of the language as implemented at the University of British Columbia is the cost, which limited the sample size in this experiment. The results of the study were generally in the expected direction but the effects were not as pronounced as had been hypothesized. The most important finding was the significant difference in proportion of errors on the main lesson between the response-insensitive (T₂) and no correctional feedback (T₃) groups. The importance of this finding was then increased by the significant relationship found between immediate learning and proportion of errors with the effect of learner traits and treatment effects statistically removed. The most effective variable in predicting performance in the experiment was mathematical ability and its effect was statistically controlled when testing the effect of the other variables. prerequisite knowledge was also important in predicting performance and was statistically controlled as well. State anxiety was significant in predicting proportion of errors but not response latency. However, significant treatment-by-A-State interactions were observed for posttest and for response latency. The three treatment groups differed in the expected direction on most of the important variables but the differences were not statistically significant. In particular, the A-State levels for the three groups were ordered as expected, but the differences were not large enough to cause the hypothesized interactions. The results of the study partially supported the hypothesis of the important role of correctional feedback in instruction and its interaction with individual traits of the learner. Finally, the variable of state anxiety was examined and it was found that higher levels of state anxiety led to longer response latencies. Also, state anxiety increased when no correctional feedback was provided to the students as well as when the content became more difficult. This finding confirmed the expected relationship between state anxiety and task difficulty. |
