THE CONSTRUCTION AND EVALUATION OF A SELF-INSTRUCTIONAL PROGRAM IN RUSSIAN.
SALTZMAN, IRVING J.
A SELF-INSTRUCTIONAL PROGRAMED COURSE IN RUSSIAN WAS CONSTRUCTED. FIFTEEN THOUSAND PRINTED FRAMES AND 306 TAPES WERE PREPARED FOR USE BY HIGH SCHOOL OR FIRST-SEMESTER COLLEGE STUDENTS. THE MATERIALS WERE USED TO (1) PROVIDE A RESEARCH TOOL FOR STUDYING SECOND LANGUAGE INSTRUCTION AND ACQUISITION AND (2) YIELD INFORMATIO ABOUT THE DEVELOPMENT OF EXTENSIVE PROGRAMED SELF-INSTRUCTION COURSES. MATERIALS FOR THE FIRST HALF OF THE COURSE (WRITING RUSSIAN SCRIPT) WERE FIELD TESTED AT THE UNIVERSITY OF WASHINGTON, SEATTLE. MATERIALS FOR THE SECOND HALF OF THE COURSE, DEALING WITH ORAL TRANSLATION OF PRINTED RUSSIAN, WERE TESTED AT INDIANA UNIVERSITY, BLOOMINGTON. FIVE BRIEF STUDIES OF SECOND LANGUAGE LEARNING WERE PERFORMED WITH A SECTION ON THE WRITING OF RUSSIAN SCRIPT. THESE STUDIES INCLUDED (1) REVIEW COMPARED WITH NONREVIEW, (2) ORDER OF PRESENTING AUDIO AND VISUAL MATERIALS, (3) COMPARISONS BETWEEN RESULTS ACHIEVED WITH PICTORIAL AND NONPICTORIAL FORMS OF THE MATERIALS, (4) COMPARISONS OF CONTROLLED REST PERIODS VERSUS REST PERIODS TAKEN AT STUDENT OPTION, AND (5) COMPARISON OF VARIOUS MODES FOR USING LINED AND UNLINED PAPER TO PRESENT THE PROGRAMED INSTRUCTIONS. THE EVALUATION DID NOT REVEAL SIGNIFICANT DIFFERENCES BETWEEN THE COMPARED GROUPS. (WN)
