A COMPARISON OF THREE METHODS OF TEACHING ELEMENTARY SCHOOL SCIENCE INVOLVING PROGRAMMED LEARNING.
HEDGES, WILLIAM D.; MACDOUGALL, MARY A.
THIS STUDY--(1) EVALUATED THREE MAJOR METHODS OF SCIENCE INSTRUCTION, (2) ESTABLISHED ANALYSIS CRITERIA FOR CURRICULUM REVISION AT THE FOURTH-GRADE LEVEL, AND (3) INVESTIGATED THE INFLUENCE OF THREE RESPONSE FACTORS IN PROGRAMED LEARNING. A TREATMENT BY LEVELS OF ANALYSIS OF VARIANCE WAS USED TO TEST DIFFERENCES IN ACHIEVEMENT BEFORE AND AFTER THE RETENTION PERIOD. DIFFERENCES IN INTEREST AMONG THE THREE GROUPS WERE DETERMINED BY A CHI-SQUARE TEST. OTHER APPROPRIATE STATISTICS WERE USED AS MEASURES OF (1) THE EFFECT OF THE LABORATORY EXPERIENCES, (2) RESPONSE FACTORS AND INTERACTION EFFECTS, AND (3) CURRICULUM REVISION. INITIAL EXPERIMENTATION AND FIELD TESTING BY THE INVESTIGATORS SUGGESTED THAT PROGRAMED SCIENCE MATERIALS, COUPLED WITH THE INDIVIDUAL PERFORMANCE BY STUDENTS OF LABORATORY EXPERIENCES, HAD PROMISE AS ONE INSTRUCTIONAL METHOD IN THE MODERN ELEMENTARY SCHOOL CURRICULUM.
