AN EVALUATION OF CLOSED-CIRCUIT INSTRUCTIONAL TELEVISION IN LOS ANGELES CITY COLLEGE AND LOS ANGELES VALLEY COLLEGE. FINAL REPORT.
Los Angeles City Schools, CA.
THIS REPORT SUMMARIZES FINDINGS OF A 5-SEMESTER STUDY OF CLOSED-CIRCUIT INSTRUCTIONAL TV IN 2 JUNIOR COLLEGES. 5008 STUDENTS HAD ENROLLED IN, AND 3931 COMPLETED, AT LEAST 1 OF 47 COURSES TAUGHT BY TV. DESPITE MINIMAL CONTROLS FOR CLASS SIZE, CLASSROOM ENVIRONMENT, INSTRUCTOR VARIABLES, AND METHOD FAMILIARITY, THESE WERE GENERAL CONCLUSIONS--THE ATTRITION RATE DECREASED DURING THE EXPERIMENT TO WHERE IT COMPARED FAVORABLY WITH THAT OF NON-TV CLASSES, BUT REMAINED SOMEWHAT HIGHER THAN THE COLLEGES' OVERALL RATES. ACHIEVEMENT OF TV AND CONTROL CLASSES WAS ESSENTIALLY EQUAL. WHILE STUDENTS STILL SEEM TO PREFER CONVENTIONAL COURSES, ACCEPTANCE BY THEM OF INSTRUCTIONAL TV IS INCREASING, AS MEASURED BY QUESTIONNAIRE AND ENROLLMENT ANALYSIS. TV INSTRUCTORS WERE GENERALLY FAVORABLE, BUT THEIR OPINIONS VARIED CONSIDERABLY. (LH)
