INDEPENDENT STUDY AT THE COLLEGE LEVEL.
ELICH, PETER J.
A PROGRAM OF INDEPENDENT STUDY WAS DEVELOPED FOR COURSES IN THE PSYCHOLOGICAL FOUNDATION OF EDUCATION REQUIRED IN A TEACHER EDUCATION PROGRAM. THREE GROUPS OF STUDENTS PARTICIPATED IN THIS PROGRAM OF FOUR COURSES--(1) HUMAN LEARNING, (2) CHILD DEVELOPMENT, (3) PERSONALITY, AND (4) EVALUATION. ONE GROUP WAS ASSIGNED, A SECOND VOLUNTEERED, AND A THIRD PARTICIPATED IN A SEMINAR DESIGNED TO FACILITATE TRANSFER FOLLOWING COMPLETION OF THE PROGRAM. CONVENTIONAL CLASS STUDENTS SERVED AS CONTROLS. A COMPARISON WAS MADE OF THE EFFECTIVENESS AND EFFICIENCY OF INDEPENDENT STUDY WITH CONVENTIONAL CLASS INSTRUCTION, AND AN ATTEMPT WAS MADE TO IDENTIFY CORRELATES OF SUCCESS IN EACH PROGRAM. NO SIGNIFICANT DIFFERENCES IN GRADES RECEIVED OR IN SCORES ON TESTS OF RETENTION AND TRANSFER WERE REVEALED AMONG ANY OF THE GROUPS. STUDENTS JUDGED THE INDEPENDENT STUDY TO BE MORE EFFICIENT THAN CONVENTIONAL CLASSES. (GD)
