EXPERIMENTS ON ACTIVE STUDENT RESPONSE TO TELEVISED INSTRUCTION. STUDIES IN TELEVISED INSTRUCTION, INTERIM REPORT.
GROPPER, GEORGE L.; LUMSDAINE, ARTHUR A.
EXPERIMENTS WERE DEVISED TO TEST THE EFFECTIVENESS OF TELEVISED INSTRUCTION. THESE WERE CONCERNED WITH WHETHER (1) METHODS OF LESSON PREPARATION AND TRYOUT COULD USE STUDENT RESPONSES TO REVISE AND IMPROVE A TELEVISION LESSON, (2) METHODS OF ELICITING ACTIVE STUDENT RESPONSE DURING INSTRUCTION COULD INCREASE THE EFFICIENCY OF LEARNING, AND (3) METHODS OF ENCOURAGING STUDENT FOLLOWUP ACTIVITY COULD STIMULATE ACTIVE INTEREST IN THE SUBJECT MATTER. SUPERIOR PERFORMANCE ON ACHIEVEMENT TESTS FOLLOWING THE REVISED TELEVISION LESSON INDICATED THAT STUDENT RESPONSES OBTAINED IN EMPIRICAL PRETESTING COULD LEAD TO IMPROVED INSTRUCTION. RESULTS ALSO INDICATED THAT, WHEN THERE WERE PROVISIONS FOR ACTIVE STUDENT RESPONSES COUPLED WITH APPROPRIATE SEQUENCING OF INSTRUCTION, THERE WERE TANGIBLE GAINS IN LEARNING EFFICIENCY. THE RESULTS OF THE EXPERIMENT ON STUDENT FOLLOWUP ACTIVITIES WERE NOT KNOWN WHEN THIS REPORT WAS SUBMITTED. RELATED REPORTS INCLUDING THE EXPERIMENTAL RESULTS, ARE ED 003 646 THROUGH ED 003 653. (PM)
