Abstract : The research activities in CAI have often been handicapped because of the inability of the computer system to function efficiently plus misunderstandings on the part of the research as to the computer's capability. This paper describes the development of a new data system to resolve these problems. This system will have overlapping input-output routines and internal sequence sensitive sort procedures in order to improve the efficiency of managing the response records from a CAI study. In addition, the research designed for studying the requirements of various categories of researchers who use the system is explicated. This development will require many user-supported programs which are not in existence today. The purpose is to improve the data management and analyses operation in order that more sophisticated research may be performed. (Author)
