VARIATIONS IN INSTRUCTIONAL MEDIA, PROCESSES, CONTENT AND APTITUDE VARIABLES IN RELATION TO EFFICIENCY OF COGNITIVE GOAL ATTAINMENT, VOLUME 1.
FATTU, N. A.
A SERIES OF STUDIES WAS UNDERTAKEN, DIRECTED TOWARD EXPLORATIONS OF INTERRELATIONSHIPS AMONG MEDIA, PROCESSES (INSTRUCTIONAL PREREQUISITES), CONTENT AND APTITUDE VARIABLES, AND ACHIEVEMENTS. EMPHASIS THROUGHOUT WAS ON (1) THE COGNITIVE DOMAIN AND (2) PROBLEMS INVOLVED IN APPLICATION OF KNOWLEDGE TO A PRACTICAL TEACHING SITUATION. "THE TAXONOMY OF EDUCATIONAL OBJECTIVES" (BLOOM AND OTHERS) PROVIDED THE INTERPRETATION OF "ACHIEVEMENT" IN TERMS OF WHICH STUDIES WERE MADE OF THE STRUCTURE OF DEPENDENT AND INDEPENDENT VARIABLES. SPECIFICATIONS WERE PREPARED, AND INSTRUCTIONAL SEQUENCES BASED ON THESE SPECIFICATIONS WERE PREPARED IN THE AREAS OF (1) MATRIX ALGEBRA, (2) FORTRAN PROGRAMING, (3) SYMBOLIC LOGIC, AND (4) ANALYSIS OF VARIANCE. ALSO, BASED ON THESE SPECIFICATIONS, ACHIEVEMENT EXAMINATIONS WERE PREPARED. EMPIRICAL STUDIES OF THE MATERIALS DEVELOPED WERE CARRIED OUT IN AN ATTEMPT TO COLLECT EMPIRICAL DATA FOR FURTHER ANALYSIS. A MODEL OF THE SYSTEM OF MEDIA INSTRUCTION AND AN OPERATION OF THIS MODEL (A SIMULATION OF THE OPERATION OF THIS SYSTEM) WERE DISPLAYED IN THE REPORT. IT WAS POSSIBLE TO MAKE A SYSTEMS ANALYSIS OF A HYPOTHETICAL MEDIA INSTRUCTIONAL SYSTEM, TO DEVELOP A MODEL, AND TO GENERATE RESULTS TO CONFORM TO EMPIRICAL FINDINGS. IF THIS APPROACH CAN BE GENERALIZED TO SIMILAR CIRCUMSTANCES IN LATER STUDIES, IT WILL LAY SOME OF THE GROUNDWORK BRIDGING THE GAP BETWEEN RESEARCH AND PRACTICE IN THE MEDIA FIELD. TWO APPENDIXES TO THIS REPORT WERE ASSIGNED ACCESSION NUMBERS ED 003 240 AND ED 003 241. (HB)
