Abstract : An instructional system for teaching Algebraic Interpretive Dialogue (AID) to college-age students, two control programs (one for presenting instructional material and one for interpreting students' AID productions), and data collected by the two control programs are described. The first 21 lessons of the course and classification of the lesson exercises are also described. Data based on studen daily reports are presented and discussed. Item analyses of data gathered by the instructional program, including stepwise linear regression models of item difficulty and analyses of selected data collected by the interpreting program are presented and discussed.
