Abstract : The report describes the evolution of a set of individualized instructional materials dealing with subject matter of varying familiarity to college students. The materials have been widely used by a number of investigators. In their full version, these materials contained content with which subjects have a fair amount of prior familiarity, and materials with which college-age students have been shown to have no prior experience. The materials have been used in both a programmed and computer-assisted instructional format. The types of modification made to the program by different investigators can, in part, account for some discrepancy between research findings. It is, therefore, strongly suggested that future researchers using these materials explicitly describe modifications made to the program. (Author)
