This experiment came about from an idea received in a course entitled Business Education Curriculum taught by Dr. J. B. Walden at Montana State University, Bozeman, Montana during the summer of 1969. In this course, the class was instructed to prepare an instructional guide for use in a business class. The instructional guide was to be designed so that a student could use the guide as a step by step procedure in the completion of a classroom project without the assistance of the teacher. Becoming intrigued with these instructional guides, I attempted to prepare certain instructional guides for use in a second year typewriting class at Oscoda Area High School, Oscoda, Michigan. These were to be used to supplement, n-t supplant the role of the teacher in the classroom. This experiment was conducted to determine if there was any difference in the level of achievement between two second year typewriting classes because of the use of instructional guides. One class would receive instruction in a traditional manner, while the other group would receive the same instruction, except they would be provided these instructional guides.
