MOTION PICTURES AS TEST STIMULI--AN APPLICATION OF NEW MEDIA TO THE PREDICTION OF COMPLEX BEHAVIOR. FINAL REPORT.
SCHALOCK, HENRY D.; AND OTHERS
THE PURPOSE OF THE STUDY WAS TO TEST THE HYPOTHESIS THAT, WHEN STIMULI PRESENTED IN TESTS TO RESPONDENTS INCREASE IN THEIR APPROXIMATION TO THE COMPLEXITY OF RELATED LIFE BEHAVIOR, EFFICIENCY OF TESTS IN PREDICTING LIFE BEHAVIOR WILL ALSO INCREASE. THE STUDY WAS CARRIED OUT IN THE CONTEXT OF TEACHER EDUCATION, WITH ACTUAL CLASSROOM BEHAVIOR OF STUDENT TEACHERS AS THE CRITERION. THE BEHAVIOR PREDICTORS RANGED FROM SIMPLE (SINGLE-DIMENSION WORDS AS STIMULI) TO COMPLEX (MULTIPLE-DIMENSION BEHAVIOR AS STIMULI). THE STATISTICAL ANALYSIS PROPOSED TO DETERMINE AN ORDER FOR THE PREDICTION INSTRUMENTS. NO ORDER WAS SUBSTANTIATED BY USING GROSS SCORING, BUT THE SUBTESTS GENERALLY SUBSTANTIATED THE NOTION THAT AS THE TESTS INCREASE IN COMPLEXITY THE EFFICIENCY OF THEIR PREDICTION IS INCREASED. (JK)
