A REPORT ON TELEVISION IN BASIC TRAINING--THE IMPROVEMENT OF BASIC TRAINING BY TELEVISION.
KANNER, JOSEPH H.; MARSHALL, WESLEY P.
A TV AND A CONVENTIONAL (C1) COMPANY OF 156 ARMY TRAINEES WERE FORMED BY MATCHING THEIR APTITUDE SCORES ON THE ARMED FORCES QUALIFICATION TEST. A REVIEW-PREVIEW INSTRUCTIONAL TECHNIQUE WAS USED FOR BOTH COMPANIES, AND FOR OTHER CONVENTIONAL COMPANIES (C2-C8) SELECTED TO PROVIDE INFORMATION SUCH AS AWARENESS OF MEASUREMENT. IN 25 COMPARISONS OF MEAN IMMEDIATE POST-TEST SCORES, THE TV COMPANY'S ACHIEVEMENT WAS SIGNIFICANTLY SUPERIOR 11 TIMES, C1 WAS SIGNIFICANTLY SUPERIOR 6 TIMES, AND THE OTHER COMPARISONS WERE NON-SIGNIFICANT. IN 50 COMPARISONS OF MEAN IMMEDIATE SCORES FOR HIGH APTITUDE TRAINEES IN BOTH COMPANIES, 16 SIGNIFICANT DIFFERENCES WERE FOUND IN THE TV COMPANY AND 9 IN C1. FIFTY COMPARISONS OF LOWER APTITUDE TRAINEES REVEALED 9 SIGNIFICANT DIFFERENCES IN THE TV COMPANY AND 4 IN C1. ALL OTHER COMPARISONS WERE NON-SIGNIFICANT. COMPARISONS ON A DELAYED ACHIEVEMENT TEST SHOWED THAT THE LEARNING OF THE TV COMPANY WAS SIGNIFICANTLY BETTER THAN ALL CONVENTIONAL COMPANIES EXCEPT C2. ALSO ON THE DELAYED TEST, THE LEARNING OF THE LOWER APTITUDE TV TRAINEES WAS AT LEAST AS EFFECTIVE AS THE LEARNING OF THE HIGHER APTITUDE CONVENTIONAL COMPANY TRAINEES. OTHER ADVANTAGES OF TV INSTRUCTION WERE DISCUSSED. (LH)
