Disclosed are two educational gaines using microfilm or micro~
fiche that can be used by students for learning a variety of
subject matter. Examples of these concepts are as follows:

A, Questions and their corresponding answers are placed on
a microfiche, The student uses, for example, a spinning~
type device to direct him to a particular grid location on
a microfiche which will represent a particular question that
is viewed on a viewing screen, The student first tries to
answer the question. The grid that the student is viewing
and which contains the particular question he is trying to
answer also gives the grid location for the answer to that
particular question.

B. A series of questions having multiple choices or true~
false type answers are presented to the student on a single
grid of a microfiche. A clear sheet is then superimposed
over the viewing screen with blank spaces appearing next to
each of the questions. The user records what he believes to
be the proper answer to the questions in the blank spaces.
Thereafter the user moves the microfiche to the grid loca~
tion which contains the correct answers to each of the ques~
tions. When the correct answers are projected onto the
screen, they are aligned with each of the corresponding
answers that the user had previously recorded on the overlay
sheet.
