Matching the Lesson to the Student: Alternative Adaptive Designs for Individualized Learning Systems
Journal of Computer-Based Instruction Volume 11, Number 2, ISSN 0098-597X
Three adaptive models encompassing variations of instructional support, incentives, and context of presentations were developed and validated through eight separate studies which compared the teaching of statistics under computer-managed instruction or teacher-managed systems. Results indicate instructional support adaptations were effective, but incentives models were beneficial only where lessons were demanding. (Author/MBR)
