Abstract

This interim report documents the findings of an evaluation of Control Data Corporation's Structured Micro-PLATO FORTRAN-77 educational materials to teach FORTRAN-77 programming to lower division undergraduate students in a four-year technology program. The study's purpose was to investigate the utilization of computer-based instruction as the primary instruction delivery method of college level technical materials. The investigation attempted to answer three primary questions associated with computer-based instruction. These were: (1) How well do centralized computer tests measure student performance compared to tests written and administered by an onsite course instructor? (2) How effective is a stand-alone computer-based educational package as compared to a traditional lecture approach? (3) How do students react to computer-based instruction?
