Although time is still a factor, attention is now on the total time spent using the learning environment rather than latency factors in individual responses. The issue is not so much on predicting behavior on the next exercise as on predicting grade level (achievement) after a number of sessions. This predictive model is being applied to the elementary school curricula and to college courses (Larsen et al. 1978; Macken and Suppes 1976; Macken et al. 1976). Although Suppes finds a linear relationship between amount of time spent using CAl and grade placement, he "would not expect to be able to find linear gains with indefinite increases in the amount of time spent at com­ puter terminals" (Macken and Suppes 1976, p.

A) In trial teaching, carefully "scripted" units were developed, refined and tested. b) Procedures for handling the "flexible" or "spontaneous" or "responsive" part of teaching were worked out, again using direct trials with students as part of the design process itself (and NOT merely for testing after design work was done), c) Typical classroom lessons were recorded on film or videotape, so that other teachers could see for themselves exactly what was done, and exactly what the resulting outcome was.

Diskettes or other hardware parts. They sit down at a terminal and log i n (identify themselves to the computer).
