FINAL RESEARCH REPORT ON THE EFFECTIVENESS OF TELEVISION IN TEACHING GUIDANCE AT THE SIXTH GRADE LEVEL.
LEMKE, OLGA
EXPERIMENTAL TREATMENTS WERE USED WITH 20 SIXTH-GRADE CLASSES, RANDOMLY ASSIGNED TO ONE OF THE FOLLOWING--(1) A COURSE OF STUDY IN A SERIES OF 21 LESSONS, 20 MINUTES IN LENGTH, ON GUIDANCE WHICH WAS PRESENTED THROUGH THE MEDIUM OF TELEVISION TO THE "TV GROUP," AND (2) THE SAME COURSE OF STUDY, PRESENTED TO THE "TEACHER-LED GROUP" IN THE CLASSROOM BY THE REGULARLY ASSIGNED TEACHER. IN THE THIRD GROUP (CONTROL GROUP), THE ONLY INSTRUCTION IN GUIDANCE GIVEN WAS THAT WHICH WAS INCIDENTAL TO OTHER ASPECTS OF THE CURRICULUM. BOTH EXPERIMENTAL GROUPS EXCEEDED THE CONTROL GROUP ON INFORMATION AND PERSONAL ADJUSTMENT AT THE FIVE PERCENT LEVEL. THE TELEVISION INSTRUCTION WAS SUPERIOR TO THE LIVE TEACHER INSTRUCTION ON BOTH MEASURES. (LP)
