RETENTION VALUE OF FILMED SCIENCE COURSES.
BLACK, WILLIAM A.; AND OTHERS
THIS INVESTIGATION WAS TO DETERMINE THE EXTENT OF SUBJECT MATTER RETENTION IN FILMED PHYSICS AND CHEMISTRY COURSES AS CONTRASTED WITH SUBJECT MATTER RETENTION IN CHEMISTRY AND PHYSICS CLASSES TAUGHT IN THE CONVENTIONAL MANNER. RESULTS OF THE ANALYSES LEAD TO THE CONCLUSION THAT NO DIFFERENCE EXISTED IN THE AMOUNT OF INFORMATION RETAINED BETWEEN THE FILM-TAUGHT AND CONVENTIONALLY TAUGHT PHYSICS AND CHEMISTRY STUDENTS. ALTHOUGH A RETENTION DIFFERENCE FAVORING THE CONVENTIONALLY TAUGHT CHEMISTRY STUDENTS WAS FOUND 7 MONTHS FOLLOWING COMPLETION OF THE CHEMISTRY COURSE, THE DIFFERENCE WAS NOT SIGNIFICANT AT THE END OF A 12-MONTH POST-LEARNING PERIOD. NO RETENTION DIFFERENCES EXISTED BETWEEN THE TWO PHYSICS GROUPS AT THE END OF EITHER INTERVAL. (LP)
