Abstract : On the basis of analytical and observational work during Phase 1 of this project, an experiment was developed to test the effects of systematic variations in the level of the independent variable 'instructional cue' (I.C.). The first phase of the research consisted of the development of a precise operational definition of the variable. This was necessary in order to permit analysis of existing instruction in terms of the variable. Parallel to this activity was the development of a semi-algorithmic design of new instruction with definable levels of the variable. These activities resulted in the definition of three levels of cues and two modes of instructional presentation/delivery to be tested in nine different combinations. Instrumentation for conduct of studies in this field was a major accomplishment. (Author)
