In the early 1960's, the computer was first used as a means of delivering instruction to college students. Today, the computer as an educational tool has been integrated into curricula from preschool to the university. This thesis focuses upon the specification and implementation of a Graphical Authoring System which is used to create, deliver and administrate instruction of a pictorial nature (combining graphics and text). The system explores a question format different from the traditional formats of multiple choice, true-false, and fill-in-the-blank which are available in current authoring systems. The question format to be explored allows the student to identify an answer by choosing a point on the screen with a coordinate selecting device such as a mouse.
