This first volume is but an introduction to the growing use of computer-based systems in health-science education. It is unlikely that the intellectual or applied system constructs herein are either exhaustive of the field or immutable; growth is inevitable. For one thing, the field is still fractured and loosely organized, which is an inevitable description of an adolescent science in a rich mine of ideas. There is emerging, however, an organizing concept. A short look into the future indicates that educational system design will be dominated by a concept which, for want of a better term, we may call an qinformation system.q Actually, this term de rives from an early New York World's Fair exhibition designed by Charles Eames entitled the qInformational Machine, q in which the designer illustrated once again his insight into the future by showing how in a fundamental manner the digital computer promised to affect and to change our lives; and this change is by no means completed. Even during the publication of this volume, the basic sciences re quisite to the development of an information machine have evolved significantly. The three intellectual areas to watch are developments in artificial intelligence, graphics and man/machine interaction, and basic component and computer system design.Effect of CAI on Student Performance in Unit Examinations Questions Right Wrong Total ANS Pharmacology (Unit I) In ... of exam questions in CAI: 26% Percent of correct answers on exam questions in CAI: 71% Percent of correct answers onanbsp;...
