TELEVISION UTILIZATION IN THE OBSERVATION PROGRAM FOR TEACHER EDUCATION.
ROGERS, WILLIAM R.
A STUDY WAS CONDUCTED TO INVESTIGATE THE EFFECTIVENESS OF TELEVISION OBSERVATION. THE OBJECTIVES WERE TO DETERMINE WHETHER TELEVISION COULD (1) REDUCE THE AMOUNT OF DIRECT OBSERVATION OF PUBLIC SCHOOL CLASSROOM ACTIVITIES NECESSARY IN THE TRAINING OF TEACHERS, (2) EFFECT ECONOMIES IN THE USE OF INSTRUCTIONAL TIME VIA MULTIPLE-SECTION TELEVISION VIEWING, (3) EFFECT ECONOMIES IN THE USE OF STUDENT TIME, AND (4) INCREASE THE CAPACITY OF THE AVAILABLE PUBLIC SCHOOLS TO PROVIDE OBSERVATIONAL EXPERIENCES. THREE EXPERIMENTAL GROUPS AND TWO CONTROL GROUPS WERE SELECTED EACH SEMESTER FOR FIVE SEMESTERS. EACH GROUP WAS COMPOSED OF 20 STUDENTS. TWO TYPES OF DATA WERE COLLECTED FROM EACH GROUP (1) THE CONTROL MEASURES INCLUDED COLLEGE SCHOLARSHIP, ACADEMIC APTITUDE, AGE, SEX, AND PREDICTED SUCCESS AS A TEACHER, (2) THE CRITERION MEASURES INCLUDED AN ASSESSMENT OF EACH STUDENT AFTER COMPLETION OF THE COURSE "ELEMENTARY SCHOOL CURRICULUM AND OBSERVATION," AND AFTER A SEMESTER OF STUDENT TEACHING. THERE WERE NO MEASURABLE DIFFERENCES ON THE CRITERION MEASURES BETWEEN THE EXPERIMENTAL AND CONTROL GROUPS. (HB)
