A COMPARISON OF METHODS OF OBSERVATION IN PRESERVICE TEACHER TRAINING--THE USE OF TELEVISION FOR IMPROVING TEACHER TRAINING AND FOR IMPROVING MEASURES OF STUDENT-TEACHING PERFORMANCE, PHASE II.
LESSER, GERALD S.; STOLLER, NATHAN
THIS REPORT REPRESENTS THE SECOND PHASE OF A TWO-PART RESEARCH PROJECT CONCERNING WAYS TO IMPROVE CERTAIN ASPECTS OF TEACHER EDUCATION THROUGH CLOSED-CIRCUIT TELEVISION AND KINESCOPE RECORDINGS. IN THIS PHASE IT WAS PREDICTED THAT KINESCOPE RECORDINGS WOULD PROVIDE A MORE EFFECTIVE MEDIUM OF OBSERVATION THAN LIVE TELEVISION, AND THAT TELEVISION OBSERVATION WOULD IN TURN BE MORE EFFECTIVE THAN OBSERVATION IN THE CLASSROOM. MEASURES OF TWO DEPENDENT VARIABLES WERE USED TO TEST THE HYPOTHESIS--(1) STUDENTS' RESPONSE TO THE OBSERVATIONAL TECHNIQUES THROUGH AN OBJECTIVE MULTIPLE-CHOICE MEASURE OF INFORMATION ABOUT TEACHING METHODS, AND (2) AN ESSAY EXAMINATION ASSESSING ABILITY TO CRITICALLY EVALUATE AN OBSERVED CLASSROOM LESSON. MEASURES OF PERFORMANCE ON THE ESSAY EXAMINATION STRONGLY SUPPORTED THE MOTION THAT KINESCOPE RECORDINGS WERE MORE EFFECTIVE THAN CLOSED CIRCUIT TELEVISION AND THAT BOTH WERE MORE EFFECTIVE THAN DIRECT OBSERVATION. PHASE I WAS REPORTED IN ED 003 510. (JC)
