Program teaching is a "real
tool" for implementing the learn-
ing process; however, it won't re-
place the text book or the instruc-
tor, Prof. Edward L. Walker of the
psychology department said.
Recently, Michigan State Uni-
versity has developed and used a
book in an introductory natural
science course which employs one
form of programming-the scram-
ble book technique-originated by
Norman A. Crowder, California
In the chapter on genetics the
material presented is followed by
a multiple choice question. The
student selects the answer and
flips to the back of the book. If
the answer is correct, he is told
to proceed to another set of ques-
tions. If the answer is incorrect,
the student is not only told why
but is instructed to reread the ini-
The advantage of this system is
that the factual material is pre-
sented in small, logical steps,
therebe minimizing the chance of
error, Prof. Finley Carpenter of the
education school explained.
Programs "plug up holes right
when the errors are made, so that
students only retain correct an-
swers," he noted. In this way char-
acteristic mistakes made by stu-
dents can be corrected.
The University is cognizant of
the programmed learning tech-
niques, and in a year or so more
faculty members will be program-
ming, Prof. Carpenter said. Pres-
ently, the psychology department
offers a programmed course in
statistics and a German PhD re-
quirement course employs pro-

cation school, business administra-
tion school and the economics,
psychology and language depart-
ments are all working on pro-
grams, Prof. Walker said.
But not all subjects can be pro-
grammed. Factual information
based on observable evidence can
be presented in this way, Prof.
Prof. Erich E. Steiner of the
botany department felt that MSU's
programmed presentation of gene-
tics was an interesting experiment.
"If someone developed a program
tailored to our situation, we'll
probably try it if it is feasible," he
The main advantage of pro-
grammed learning at the Univer-
sity, according to Prof. Steiner,
would be for the distribution stu-
dent who deplores learning tech-
nical material, when what he
wants is generalizations. "But you
can't discuss the big ideas until
you have the facts," he asserted.
Programmed learning might
help the student pick up detail,
faster, he added.
In general there are two func-
tions of the program technique,
Prof. Steiner said. First, to assist
the slow student learn difficult
concepts. And, secondly, to help
all students learn effortlessly in
preparation for the integration of
fact and theory.
"There is no ascetic necessity to
make learning difficult," he as-
