Abstract : The document was prepared for the prospective users of two additions to the Data Management System of the Florida State University Computer-Assisted Instruction Center. These two additions are the EDIT Program and the Data Preparation Program. It is assumed that the user has an operational Florida State University Data Management System for the IBM 1500/1800 system. The manual is divided into two sections, a users' manual and a programmers' manual. Examples of output generated by authors of CAI materials are included. However, the output of these programs is still raw data. A statistical system is needed to make descriptive or inferential statements about the data. These extensions will hopefully insure greater reliability, be user oriented and offer more flexibility of output for CAI data than the existing set of Florida State University CAI programs.
