Initial dialogue with SETDEC instructs the user and accepts quiz or instructional items. The A,3 keyword answer type is used throughout. The resulting file has CAI extension, and can be edited.

Two types of lessons are available: first, random selection of n items from a population of N items, and second, linear presentation of n instructional items.
