ADMINISTRATIVE AND INSTRUCTIONAL ADJUSTMENTS RESULTING FROM THE USE OF PROGRAMED MATERIALS.
ARCHER, N. SIDNEY; AND OTHERS
A SURVEY WAS CONDUCTED AMONG KNOWLEDGEABLE PERSONS WHO INDICATED AND EVALUATED THEIR PRACTICES AND ADJUSTMENTS IN THE USE OF PROGRAMED MATERIALS. RESPONSES TO QUESTIONNAIRES WERE RECEIVED FROM APPROXIMATELY 400 TEACHERS, ADMINISTRATORS, AND RESEARCHERS. FROM AN ANALYSIS OF THE DATA AN ATTEMPT WAS MADE TO EVALUATE EFFECTIVE INSTRUCTIONAL PRACTICES. TEACHERS WERE PLACED INTO GROUPINGS ARRANGED FROM MOST EFFECTIVE TO LEAST EFFECTIVE USERS OF PROGRAMED MATERIAL. THE CONCLUSIONS REACHED WERE--(1) THERE WAS COMMON AGREEMENT CONCERNING THE EFFECTIVE IMPLEMENTATION AND USE OF PROGRAMED MATERIALS, (2) THE ADJUSTMENTS INVESTIGATED RECEIVED STRONG ENDORSEMENT, AND (3) THE QUALITY OF THE INTERPERSONAL ENCOUNTER WAS CONSIDERED THE MOST IMPORTANT FACTOR IN THE LEARNING PROCESS. SUGGESTIONS WERE THAT RESEARCH PLACE MORE EMPHASIS ON TECHNIQUES TO MEASURE THE QUALITY OF INTERPERSONAL ENCOUNTER. THIS WOULD ALLOW ATTITUDES OF PERSONS TO BE IDENTIFIED. (RS)
