Summary

Feedback management in an individually-paced instruction system can be mathematically analyzed by the use of computer simulation models. Because of the student "down time" or waiting time associated with individualized instruction situations, reinforcement activities have been reduced to less than ideal levels. By proper time management the student is insured of making at least average continuous progress through the curriculum while receiving an acceptable level of reinforcement through the successful completion of tasks. This theoretical study used DYNAMO II programing on an IBM 360 computer to run several simulation models. In each case the pacing variable was found to be of primary importance to the success of the overall instructional system. (MC)
