Abstract : Two computer programs for computer-aided performance training were developed. These programs were designed to give students the opportunity for concentrated practice of troubleshooting and of procedural tasks. In contrast to the usual approach taken in CAI, these programs simulate essential aspects of devices and tasks and continuously update their states during a practice session; they generate responses to a student's inputs from that student's history and simple list-structures; they are made specific to particular devices and tasks by data modules, therefore no 'CAI language' is used; and they offer the student several options for drills and for receiving advice during practice. These programs are being converted to run in a new type of programmable graphics terminal with two integral minicomputers. (Author)
