A REPORT ON INSTRUCTIONAL SOUND MOTION PICTURES IS PRESENTED. THE FIRST SECTION OF THE REPORT INVOLVES THE AREA OF PSYCHOLOGICAL LEARNING PRINCIPLES AND THEIR RELATIONSHIPS TO LEARNING FROM FILMS.

THE SECOND SECTION INVOLVES FILM CHARACTERISTICS, THEIR EFFECTS ON LEARNING, AND PROPOSED INVESTIGATIONS TO DETERMINE THE RELATIVE EFFECTIVENESS OF SUCH FILM VARIABLES AS COLOR, MUSIC, VOICE CHARACTERISTICS, EMOTIONAL TONE, AND HUMOR UNDER VARIOUS CONDITIONS OF LEARNING.
