Abstract : The use of paired learning teams was investigated as a possible technique for improving instructional achievement and efficiency. The primary question was the comparison of achievement of students who learned in pairs with the achievement of students who learned individually, all subjects being tested independently and instruction presented by means of an IBM 1500 CAI system. Fifteen subsidiary questions were investigated including comparison of error rates, various timing measures, and confidence ratings. Also investigated were the pair-formation variables, the nature of paired interaction, and variations of task difficulty. (Author)
