Abstract

The development of systems for computer-aided instruction (CAI) has been going forward for a number of years. It has proven very difficult, however, to achieve the level of performance hoped for in the early Sixties. Current systems still exhibit considerable weakness in the areas of: (1) Communicating in English with the student; (2) Capacity for diagnosing failures on the part of the student to truly comprehend the required material; (3) Providing individualized guidance for deficient students;(4) Providing an efficient facility for teachers to construct CAI lessons on-line with the help of the computer. It is suggested that these inadequacies can be partially remedied by the development of computer systems which are capable of "understanding" the content of the course material to be presented to the student, and thus be in a proper position to assess the level of understanding by the student.
