THE EFFICACY OF VIDEOTAPES AND DIRECT OBSERVATION FOR TEACHING OBSERVATIONAL SKILLS.
JENKINS, ESTHER C.
A PILOT PROJECT FOR TEACHING OBSERVATIONAL SKILLS WAS CONDUCTED, USING FOUR PLANS OF OBSERVATION--DIRECT CLASSROOM OBSERVATION ("DO") ONLY, VIDEOTAPE TELEVIEWING ("TV") ONLY, "DO" FOLLOWED BY "TV," AND "TV" FOLLOWED BY "DO." COLLEGE STUDENTS ENROLLED IN A TEACHER EDUCATION COURSE WERE RANDOMLY ASSIGNED TO COMPARISON GROUPS, USING THE DIFFERENT OBSERVATIONAL METHODS, ALL STUDENTS WERE PRETESTED ON VARIOUS MEASURES. POST-TESTS WERE ADMINISTERED ON COMPLETION OF OBSERVATIONS. OF THE COMPARATIVE MEASURES USED, THE ONLY ONE WHICH IDENTIFIED ANY SIGNIFICANT GROUP DIFFERENCES WAS THE COMPARISON OF STUDENT OBSERVER REACTIONS WITH CHILDREN'S RESPONSES TO SOCIOGRAMS. THIS COMPARISON SHOWED THAT THE SEQUENCE OF "DO" FOLLOWED BY "TV" PRODUCED MORE AGREEMENT BETWEEN THE STUDENT OBSERVERS AND THE OBSERVED CHILDREN THAN DID "TV" FOLLOWED BY "DO." STUDENT EVALUATIONS INDICATED THAT MOST STUDENTS PREFERRED THAT TYPE OF OBSERVATION AND OBSERVATIONAL SEQUENCE WHICH THEY INDIVIDUALLY EXPERIENCED. (RS)
