EXPERIMENTAL PROGRAMS IN THE JUNIOR COLLEGE.
ROUECHE, JOHN E.
AN EXAMINATION OF 29 STUDIES REVEALS A GREAT VARIATION IN THE PROCEDURES AND FINDINGS OF THESE INVESTIGATIONS INTO EXPERIMENTAL EFFORTS IN JUNIOR COLLEGE CURRICULA AND INSTRUCTIONAL PROCEDURE. HOWEVER, THE STUDIES USUALLY DID ONE OF FOUR THINGS--(1) CONSIDERED PROGRAMS AT A NUMBER OF INSTITUTIONS, (2) SUMMARIZED THE RATIONALE AND PROCEDURE OF AN EXPERIMENTAL PROGRAM, (3) COMPARED DIFFERENT INSTRUCTIONAL APPROACHES, OR (4) REPORTED ON A CONTROLLED EXPERIMENTAL RESEARCH PROJECT. TWO STUDIES DEMONSTRATED THE EFFECTIVENESS OF TELEVISION AS AN INSTRUCTIONAL DEVICE. ONE STUDY OUTLINED THE METHODOLOGY OF AN AUDIO-TUTORIAL COURSE IN LIBERAL-ARTS BIOLOGY. ANOTHER REPORTED ON A STUDY OF A REMEDIAL READING PROGRAM FOR LOW-ABILITY STUDENTS. ANOTHER CONSIDERED THE INFLUENCE OF CLASS SIZE ON TEACHING EFFECTIVENESS. THERE REMAINS A NEED FOR EXPERIMENTATION FOR THE PURPOSE OF SYSTEMATICALLY ASSESSING THE QUALITY OF JUNIOR COLLEGE INSTRUCTION. (A BIBLIOGRAPHY OF THE DOCUMENTS REVIEWED IS INCLUDED.) THIS ARTICLE WAS PUBLISHED IN "JUNIOR COLLEGE RESEARCH REVIEW," VOLUME 1, NUMBER 5, JUNE 1967. (AD)
