MEASUREMENT OF LISTENING COMPREHENSION VIA TELEVISION IN ELEMENTARY SCHOOL SPANISH INSTRUCTION, REPORT NUMBER 2--RESEARCH ON THE CONTEXT OF INSTRUCTIONAL TELEVISION.
ANDRADE, MANUEL; AND OTHERS
THE DENVER PUBLIC SCHOOLS AND STANFORD UNIVERSITY'S INSTITUTE FOR COMMUNICATION RESEARCH, IN A JOINT RESEARCH PROJECT, INVESTIGATED AN AUDIOLINGUAL METHOD TO TEACH FIRST-YEAR SPANISH TO FIFTH GRADERS. THREE PENCIL-AND-PAPER, TV-ADMINISTERED TESTS, DESIGNED TO MEASURE LISTENING COMPREHENSION SKILLS, WERE DEVELOPED DURING THE 1960-61 SCHOOL YEAR. VALIDITY, RELIABILITY, COMPREHENSIVENESS, DISCRIMINATION, AND CERTAIN OTHER PRINCIPLES SUGGESTED BY LANGUAGE EXPERTS WERE CAREFULLY CONSIDERED DURING THE DEVELOPMENT. THE LACK OF AN OUTSIDE CRITERION AGAINST WHICH TO COMPARE OBTAINED RESULTS MADE VALIDITY A PROBLEM. CAREFUL DEFINITION OF COURSE OBJECTIVES AND A DETAILED CONTENT ANALYSIS SHOWING THE EMPHASIS GIVEN EACH LANGUAGE ELEMENT DURING TV INSTRUCTION, HOWEVER, PROVIDED CONSTRUCT VALIDITY. EXTENSIVE PRETESTING AND ANALYSIS OF RESULTS OF THE ACTUAL TV ADMINISTRATIONS SHOWED THAT THE OTHER CRITERIA FOR TEST DEVELOPMENT AND USE WERE SATISFIED. TWO GENERAL TYPES OF TEST ITEMS WERE USED. THE FIRST HAD PICTURES ON EACH PUPIL'S ANSWER SHEET, AND THE PUPIL RESPONDED BY MATCHING A PICTURE TO A STATEMENT SPOKEN BY THE TELEVISION INSTRUCTOR. THE SECOND TYPE REQUIRED CHOOSING ONE OF TWO POSSIBLE ALTERNATIVES (TRUE OR FALSE, 1 OR 2) IN RESPONSE TO A STATEMENT OR STATEMENTS SPOKEN BY THE INSTRUCTOR. IN EACH TEST THE PICTURE ITEMS WERE SUBSTANTIALLY BETTER THAN THE OTHERS IN TERMS OF DISCRIMINATION, AND THE 1 OR 2 ALTERNATIVE ITEMS WERE POOREST. OTHER REPORTS IN THIS SERIES ARE ED 003 244 AND ED 003 246. (LP)
