EXPERIMENTAL STUDY IN INSTRUCTIONAL PROCEDURES. SECOND REPORT.
MACOMBER, F.G.
THE EFFECTIVENESS AND FEASIBILITY OF USING CERTAIN TYPES OF LARGE GROUP INSTRUCTION AT THE COLLEGE LEVEL WERE STUDIED. COURSES WERE TAUGHT (1) BY TELEVISION, (2) BY LECTURE, (3) BY A PROBLEM OR CASE STUDY APPROACH, AND (4) BY GRADUATE STUDENT ASSISTANTS. EVALUATIONS INVOLVED COMPARISONS BETWEEN THESE EXPERIMENTAL METHODS AND CONVENTIONAL INSTRUCTION. FOR MATCHING PURPOSES, STUDENTS TOOK THE COOPERATIVE TEST OF ENGLISH ACHIEVEMENT, THE COOPERATIVE MATHEMATICS PLACEMENT TEST, AND THE AMERICAN COUNCIL ON EDUCATION EXAMINATION FOR COLLEGE FRESHMEN. IN GENERAL, NO GREAT DIFFERENCE WAS FOUND BETWEEN ACADEMIC ACHIEVEMENT IN EXPERIMENTAL AND CONTROL CLASSES. STUDENT ATTITUDES TOWARDS COURSES AND INSTRUCTORS WERE MEASURED ON A C-SCALE. THE INSTRUCTOR WAS A MAJOR DETERMINANT OF STUDENT REACTION. GENERALLY, STUDENTS PREFERRED CONVENTIONAL (SMALL) CLASSES. (MS)
