New measurement and evaluation methods for an instructional program are introduced. The traditional program evaluation has been based on student performance for frame responses and scores of pre-and post-tests. In this short note, the concept of "Response Time" which was introduced by F. Hermanson-Snickars et al., is presented in order to better evaluate the program [1]. Response time is that time which a particular student takes for execution of a frame or a limited sequence of frames. First, this short note introduces a measurement method by which it is possible to measure response time under usual programmed instruction conditions without special equipment. Next, frame construction is evaluated through the analysis of average response time and error rates. Moreover, a response time distribution for each frame is investigated in order to improve the program.
