Abstract: Modern science and technology have resulted in a tremendous increase in knowledge which has made it difficult for students and teachers to keep up with changes. These changes make education more essential to our progress. Students find themselves in overcrowded classrooms and teachers find themselves trying to meet the needs of each individual student. Such dilemma results in frustration for both. Steps have been taken to improve these conditions. Psychologists have advanced during the last decade a revolutionary new method of teaching and learning which may help to solve the problems of the increase in knowledge and overcrowding in the classroom. This method is popularly called automated or programed instruction. Briefly programed instruction takes the place of a tutor as it leads the student through a set of materials designed and sequenced to teach him to behave in a certain way.
