Strategy and tactics in programmed instruction

ByE. Stones

This paper presents the view that questions such as whether or not to use machines or whether or not to use a branching or a linear mode are more appropriate to the tactics of program writing than to the strategy. A more fruitful approach is to develop a considered optimum strategy through the procedures of task analysis and only then to consider the implications in terms of hardware and the specific instructional mode.
