Summary

In this second volume of a three-volume series on the construction of self-instructional systems, the system synthesis phase is described and directions are given for the construction of a preliminary system version. In order to aid the program constructor in establishing the correct sequence of instruction, various models of programing are outlined, including the prototypical models of Skinner and Crowder, linear models, micro- and macro-branching models, and completely student-adapted models. A flow model is suggested which starts from the subject matter content and includes considerations of terminal behavior characteristics and of the characteristics of the student population. The problem of determining the proper information component for each instructional unit is examined, with special emphasis on the questions of step size, prompting, and the use of fading technique. The advantages and disadvantages of such response factors as overt response, covert response, errors, constructed responses, multiple-choice responses, relevance, and position in the text are explored. The importance of providing the correct type and quantity of result indications is stressed. See also volume one (EM 009 072) and volume three (EM 009 074). (JY)
