MAGNETIC RECORDINGS AND VISUAL DISPLAYS AS AIDS IN TEACHING INTRODUCTORY PSYCHOLOGY TO COLLEGE STUDENTS.
JOHNSTON, ROLAND E., JR.
THIS PROJECT WAS AN EXPERIMENT TO COMPARE ACHIEVEMENT IN CLASSES TAUGHT WITH AUDIOVISUAL PRESENTATIONS AND DISCUSSION TO ACHIEVEMENT IN CLASSES TAUGHT BY CONVENTIONAL METHODS OF LECTURE, DISCUSSION, AND LABORATORY WORK. SINCE ACHIEVEMENT TENDED TO BE SLIGHTLY HIGHER IN SECTIONS TAUGHT BY CONVENTIONAL METHODS, THE CONTINUATION OF THE CONVENTIONAL METHOD WAS RECOMMENDED. SHOULD A SEVERE TEACHER SHORTAGE DEVELOP, TEACHER-STUDENT CONTACT CAN BE REDUCED BY ONE-HALF IN CLASSES IN GENERAL PSYCHOLOGY WITH ONLY A SMALL DECREASE IN ACHIEVEMENT AS MEASURED BY TESTS. EVALUATION OF STUDENT RESPONSE TO THIS METHOD OF PRESENTATION IS INCONCLUSIVE BECAUSE OF THE POOR QUALITY OF THE RECORDINGS USED AND POOR ACOUSTICS IN THE PRESENTATION ROOM. (LP)
