THE USE OF STUDENT RESPONSE TO IMPROVE TELEVISED INSTRUCTION, AN OVERVIEW. STUDIES IN TELEVISED INSTRUCTION, REPORT 7.
GROPPER, GEORGE L.; LUMSDAINE, ARTHUR A.
A SERIES OF EXPERIMENTS WAS CONDUCTED TO TEST THE EFFECTIVENESS OF TELEVISED INSTRUCTION. THIS REPORT, THE SEVENTH, DESCRIBES THE USE OF GENERAL SCIENCE LESSONS FOR JUNIOR HIGH SCHOOL STUDENTS TELEVISED BY AN EDUCATIONAL STATION. FOR EACH EXPERIMENT TWO ALTERNATE VERSIONS WERE PREPARED. ONE VERSION (THE EXPERIMENTAL LESSON) WAS SHOWN, AND COMPARED WITH THE SECOND VERSION (THE CONTROL LESSON) SIMULTANEOUSLY TELECAST OVER ANOTHER CHANNEL. DESCRIBED IN THIS REPORT, IN EACH OF THE THREE TYPES OF STUDIES, STUDENT PERFORMANCE WAS USED BEFORE, DURING, AND AFTER TELEVISION LESSONS TO EVALUATE AND IMPROVE TELEVISED INSTRUCTION. CONCLUSIONS WERE THAT MORE EFFECTIVE USE OF EDUCATIONAL TELEVISION WILL RESULT FROM SYSTEMATIC ATTENTION TO ITS METHODS FOR STIMULATING APPROPRIATE STUDENT RESPONSES AND FOR ALTERING OR REVISING INSTRUCTIONAL PROGRAMS UNTIL STUDENTS ATTAIN THE CAPABILITY OF MAKING THESE RESPONSES. RELATED REPORTS ARE ED 003 646 THROUGH ED 003 653. (JC)
