Abstract : Study time for maneuvering board learning programs presenting solution procedures with a selectively programmed type of explanation, a large frame type, and a small frame type was compared using three equated groups awaiting assignment at the Naval Training Center, San Diego. The large frame type was investigated as the most efficient for maneuvering board instruction. The selectively programmed type, corroborating other research, was studied for types of learning requiring essay answers rather than translation such as maneuvering board solution procedures.
