AN EXPERIMENTAL COMPARISON OF DIRECT-DETAILED AND DIRECTED DISCOVERY METHODS OF PRESENTING TAPE-RECORDED INSTRUCTION.
ROWLETT, JOHN D.
EFFECTS ATTRIBUTABLE TO DIRECT-DETAILED AND DIRECT DISCOVERY METHODS OF ORGANIZING AND PRESENTING TAPED (AURAL) INSTRUCTION WERE COMPARED. INITIAL LEARNING, RETENTION, AND TRANSFER OF TRAINING WERE MEASURED. DIRECTED DISCOVERY, DIRECT-DETAILED METHODS, AND A SINGLE CONTROL WERE THE INDEPENDENT TREATMENT VARIABLES. HIGH, AVERAGE, AND LOW ABILITY GROUPS WERE THE INDEPENDENT LEVEL VARIABLES. INITIAL LEARNING, RETENTION, AND TRAINING TRANSFER AT STIPULATED INTERVALS WERE DEPENDENT VARIABLES. LENGTH OF INSTRUCTION, TYPE OF AIDS, WORKBOOK PROBLEMS, TESTS AND TESTING CONDITIONS, AND INSTRUCTION CONTENT AND METHODS WERE CONTROLLED VARIABLES. FEMALE, FIRST-SEMESTER COLLEGE STUDENTS IN A REQUIRED SOCIAL SCIENCE COURSE WERE THE SUBJECTS. ORTHOGRAPHIC PROJECTION SKILLS AND PRINCIPLES WERE SELECTED FOR THE LEARNING TASK. TWO GROUPS OF SUBJECTS RECEIVED TREATMENTS. A CONTROL GROUP RECEIVED NO INSTRUCTION. TESTS FOR INITIAL, TRANSFERRED, AND RETAINED LEARNING WERE THEN ADMINISTERED AND COMPARED. THE AUTHOR CONCLUDES THAT EFFECTIVE LEARNING CAN BE ACCOMPLISHED WITHOUT THE PRESENCE OF A TEACHER. (WN)
