computer‐assisted instruction

Raymond A. Noe


Computer‐assisted instruction (CAI) refers to an instructional system in which the student interacts directly with the computer which has stored informational and instructional materials related to the program. CAI permits individualized instruction: the student can choose content, level of difficulty, and practice opportunities. The trainee also receives direct feedback about his or her performance in the program. CAI permits the trainee to skip material or return to previously seen materials for remediation. Because training materials are self‐contained on the computer, CAI gives the learner the flexibility to decide when he or she wants to be trained and how much content to cover in a session.
