EFFECTS OF INSERTED QUESTIONS IN FILMS ON DEVELOPING AN UNDERSTANDING OF CONTROLLED EXPERIMENTATION.
VUKE, GEORGE J.
THE PURPOSE OF THE STUDY WAS THE DEVELOPMENT AND EXPERIMENTAL TEST OF TWO VERSIONS OF A SEVENTH-GRADE SCIENCE FILM. SPECIFIC OBJECTIVES WERE (1) TO PRODUCE TWO VERSIONS OF A FILM, ONE OF WHICH CONTAINED INSERTED QUESTIONS, AND (2) TO COMPARE THE EFFECTIVENESS OF THE QUESTIONS IN DEVELOPING AN UNDERSTANDING OF CONTROLLED EXPERIMENTATION. ALL OF THE SEVENTH-GRADE STUDENTS IN A PARTICULAR SCHOOL WERE RANDOMLY ASSIGNED TO ONE OF TWO GROUPS. THE STUDENTS WERE GIVEN A PRETEST, AND ON THE FOLLOWING DAY, AFTER SEEING ONE OF THE TWO FILM VERSIONS, THEY WERE GIVEN A POST-TEST. TWO WEEKS LATER A RETENTION TEST WAS ADMINISTERED. NO SIGNIFICANT DIFFERENCE OF LEARNING WAS FOUND. THE GAIN BETWEEN PRETEST AND POST-TEST SCORES WAS STATISTICALLY SIGNIFICANT AT THE .005 LEVEL. THE RETENTION TEST SHOWED NO SIGNIFICANT DIFFERENCE BETWEEN THE MEANS OF GROUPS. (HB)
