A COMPARATIVE STUDY IN THE TEACHING OF HIGH SCHOOL CHEMISTRY AND PHYSICS.
BRYAN, EDWARD E.
AN EVALUATION WAS MADE OF SEVERAL INSTRUCTIONAL METHODS FOR EDUCATIONAL TELEVISION. THIRTY-SIX EXPERIMENTAL CLASSES OF HIGH SCHOOL STUDENTS (225) ENROLLED IN PHYSICS OR CHEMISTRY CLASSES WERE SELECTED BY STRATIFIED RANDOM SAMPLING. THE THREE TREATMENTS INCLUDED (1) TELEVISION AND CORRESPONDENCE COURSES, (2) TELEVISION AND VISITS BY STUDENTS IN EDUCATION, AND (3) TELEVISION, AND BOTH CORRESPONDENCE AND VISITS. DATA WERE GATHERED BY PRE- AND POST-TESTS AND A QUESTIONNAIRE OF ATTITUDES. NO SIGNIFICANT DIFFERENCES AMONG THE THREE PHYSICS GROUPS WERE FOUND. CONSIDERABLE VARIATION, HOWEVER, WAS NOTED BETWEEN THE CHEMISTRY GROUPS. THE TELEVISION-CORRESPONDENCE-VISITATION TREATMENT GROUP PRODUCED SIGNIFICANT ACHIEVEMENT GAINS OVER THE OTHER CHEMISTRY GROUPS. (RS)
