Three new teaching techniques-programmed instruction, Fields technique, and the Keller proctorial system were integrated and used in the teaching of an introductory Fortran programming course at the University of Washington Spring Quarter 1971. Programmed instruction was first used in 1967, then Fields-type teaching questions were included in 1969, and the Keller technique was integrated with the other two in 1971. Achievement, based on 90%or better for each unit, has been increased, grades earned were higher, and most students like the technique better than conventional teaching, although some students feel it is more work. Student proctors gave assistance as needed on a one-to-one basis and did the administering and grading of achievement quizzes. The writer believes students learn more with this technique, and about $1150 can be saved each quarter using the integrated system with 100 students and ten paid proctors.
