TELEVISION AND CONSULTANT SERVICES AS METHODS OF INSERVICE EDUCATION FOR ELEMENTARY SCHOOL TEACHERS OF MATHEMATICS.
DEVAULT, VERE M.; AND OTHERS
THE PROBLEM OF THIS STUDY WAS TO DETERMINE THE RELATIVE EFFECTIVENESS OF TELEVISION, FACE-TO-FACE LECTURE-DISCUSSION, TELEVISION SUPPLEMENTED BY CLASSROOM CONSULTANT SERVICES, AND FACE-TO-FACE LECTURE-DISCUSSION SUPPLEMENTED BY CLASSROOM CONSULTANT SERVICES AS METHODS OF INSERVICE EDUCATION FOR ELEMENTARY SCHOOL MATHEMATICS TEACHERS. PRE- AND POST-TESTING WAS COMPLETED BY 89 TEACHERS. ASSIGNMENTS TO RESEARCH GROUPS WERE MADE ON THE BASIS OF THREE CRITERIA--(1) LOCATION OF THE TEACHER'S SCHOOL, (2) EXPERIENCE OF THE TEACHER, AND (3) SOCIOECONOMIC LEVEL OF THE SCHOOL COMMUNITY. PARTICIPANTS WERE ASSIGNED TO ONE OF TWO GROUPS--(1) A TELEVISION GROUP AND (2) A FACE-TO-FACE LECTURE-DISCUSSION GROUP. CONSULTANT SERVICES WERE MADE AVAILABLE TO APPROXIMATELY ONE-HALF OF THE PARTICIPANTS IN BOTH GROUPS. CHANGE IN ACHIEVEMENT OF TEACHERS, TEACHER REACTION TO THE INSERVICE EDUCATIONAL PROGRAM, CHANGE IN TEACHERS' CLASSROOM PRACTICES, AND CHANGE IN PUPILS' ACHIEVEMENT AND INTEREST IN MATHEMATICS WERE MEASURES USED IN DETERMINING THE RELATIVE EFFECTIVENESS OF THIS INSERVICE PROJECT. CONCLUSIONS WERE--(1) TELEVISED INSTRUCTION WAS AS EFFECTIVE AS FACE-TO-FACE LECTURE-DISCUSSIONS WITH RESPECT TO MEASURES USED IN EVALUATION AND (2) CONSULTANT SERVICES, SUPPLEMENTING TELEVISION AND FACE-TO-FACE LECTURE-DISCUSSION, MADE A SIGNIFICANT CONTRIBUTION IN SOME SITUATIONS.
