Abstract : The reported research was designed to investigate the impact of learner control on performance and anxiety in a computer-assisted instruction task. The research was divided into three phases, of which the first two are reported in this document. The first phase entailed the development of a two-hour computer-assisted instruction program on the identification of edible plants. The second was experimentation to determine the effectiveness of learner control. Four groups were used in the experimental design. (Modified author abstract)
