Abstract : The purposes of CAI are described. Five modes of use are described; problem solving; drill and practice; simulation and gaming; tutorial instruction; and author. The multi-media character of CAI is described. A model of CAI is developed; it is the idiographic contingency model (ICM). The model treats instruction as a multiple decision process. The first is the pretutorial; the second is the tutorial process; the third process is concerned with maintaining or changing the teaching program by altering the teaching strategy (logic). Implications for curriculum planning, man-machine relations, operation and assessment and evaluation are discussed. (Author)
