MULTIMEDIA VISUAL AIDS AS INSTRUCTIONAL TECHNIQUES IN COLLEGE HISTORY SURVEY COURSES. FINAL REPORT.
KREMPLE, FREDERICH A.
THE PROBLEM OF THIS RESEARCH PROJECT WAS TO INVESTIGATE AND EVALUATE THE QUESTION--CAN THE MATERIALS AND TECHNIQUES OF MULTIMEDIA VISUAL INSTRUCTION BE INTEGRATED WITH THE LECTURE METHOD IN SUCH A MANNER TO IMPROVE EFFECTIVELY THE TEACHING OF A COLLEGE SURVEY COURSE IN MEDIEVAL HISTORY. SPECIFICALLY, FOUR OBJECTIVES WERE INVOLVED--(1) TO DETERMINE WHAT AREAS OF THE SUBJECT CONTENT WOULD LEND THEMSELVES TO MULTIMEDIA VISUALS, (2) TO EVALUATE AND ANALYZE AVAILABLE MATERIALS APPLICABLE TO THE COURSE, (3) TO INTEGRATE PREPARED MATERIALS TO ACTUAL PRESENTATION OF A COURSE IN MEDIEVAL HISTORY, AND (4) TO PREPARE AND APPLY A TESTING PROGRAM TO PROPERLY EVALUATE THE PROJECT. FOR THIS STUDY COMPARISONS WERE MADE BETWEEN PROGRESS SCORES OF A CONTROL GROUP TAUGHT BY LECTURES AND TRADITIONAL VISUAL MEDIA AND THE ACHIEVEMENT OF THE EXPERIMENTAL GROUP TAUGHT BY LECTURES AND MULTIMEDIA VISUAL AIDS. STRONG STUDENT RESPONSE AND TEST SCORES SHOWED MULTIMEDIA CAN BE SUCCESSFULLY INTEGRATED WITH LECTURE TECHNIQUE. THE EXPERIMENTAL GROUP TEST SCORES OF THE MULTIMEDIA GROUP COMPARED FAVORABLY TO SLIGHTLY BETTER THAN THE CONTROL GROUP, BUT STATISTICAL EVALUATION SHOWED THE MULTIMEDIA METHOD WAS NOT SIGNIFICANTLY SUPERIOR TO USE OF TRADITIONAL VISUAL AIDS.
