HEALTH EDUCATION BY EDUCATIONAL TELEVISION, A PRELIMINARY EVALUATION, 1964-65 FALL SEMESTER.
San Mateo Coll., CA.
TO ASSESS STUDENT OPINION TOWARD TELEVISED INSTRUCTION IN A REQUIRED HEALTH EDUCATION COURSE, A 7-ITEM QUESTIONNAIRE WAS ADMINISTERED TO 416 STUDENTS AT THE END OF A TELEVISION COURSE AND TO 213 WHO COMPLETED A LIVE LECTURE CLASS. TELEVISION SECTIONS, EACH CONTAINING ABOUT 60 STUDENTS, WERE MONITORED BY MATURE, COMPETENT PERSONS WHO RECORDED ATTENDANCE, MADE ANNOUNCEMENTS, ADMINISTERED EXAMINATIONS, AND, WHEN TIME PERMITTED, ANSWERED QUESTIONS. LIVE PRESENTATIONS WERE MADE TO ONE LARGE GROUP. ONE INSTRUCTOR PRESENTED BOTH COURSES. THE TELEVISION AND LIVE LECTURE GROUPS APPEARED QUITE COMPARABLE IN AGE, MARITAL STATUS, SEX, AND GRADE AVERAGES. WHILE REACTION TO THE COURSE WAS FAVORABLE IN BOTH GROUPS, THE LIVE LECTURE GROUP REACTED MUCH MORE FAVORABLY. LACK OF PERSONAL COMMUNICATION WITH THE INSTRUCTOR WAS THE CHIEF OBJECTION TO THE TELEVISION COURSE, ALTHOUGH OVER HALF OF THE TELEVISION STUDENTS SAID THEY WOULD BE WILLING TO ENROLL IN FUTURE COURSES OF THIS TYPE. THE AUTHORS CONCLUDED THAT TELEVISED INSTRUCTION HAS EXCELLENT POSSIBILITIES OF ACCEPTANCE, ESPECIALLY IF COMBINED WITH DISCUSSION SESSIONS. APPENDED ARE DESCRIPTIONS OF THE STUDENT GROUPS AND DETAILED ANALYSES OF THE RESPONSES TO EACH QUESTION. (WO)
