COMMUNICATION OF WORK METHODS.
KONZ, STEPHAN A.; AND OTHERS
THE ECONOMIC IMPLICATIONS OF PROGRAMED INSTRUCTION FOR WORK TRAINING UNDER CONTROLLED CONDITIONS WERE INVESTIGATED. "WORK TRAINING" REQUIRED THE MEMORIZATION OF PROCEDURES DURING THE TRAINING PERIOD. ONE EXPERIMENT UTILIZED 20 UNSKILLED FEMALES WHO COMPLETED A LAYERED ASSEMBLY BY REFERRING TO A TYPED LIST OR SLIDES OF THE ASSEMBLY WHICH WERE OPERATOR PACED. WITH CRITERIA OF TIME AND ERRORS, THE SLIDES WERE MORE EFFECTIVE. A SECOND EXPERIMENT UTILIZED 20 MALE COLLEGE STUDENTS WHO MADE A LAYERED ASSEMBLY BY REFERRING TO A TYPED LIST ON A SLIDE OR SLIDES OF THE ASSEMBLY, AGAIN OPERATOR PACED. THE ASSEMBLY SLIDES WERE MORE EFFECTIVE THAN THE LIST SLIDES. A THIRD EXPERIMENT UTILIZED 16 UNSKILLED FEMALES WHO MADE A LAYERED ASSEMBLY BY REFERRING TO MULTIPLE SLIDES PER LAYER, SINGLE SLIDES PER LAYER, A TYPED LIST IN A TYPEWRITER, OR TAPED AUDIO INSTRUCTIONS. ALL WERE OPERATOR PACED. BOTH SLIDE METHODS WERE ABOUT EQUALLY EFFECTIVE, AND BOTH WERE MORE EFFECTIVE THAN THE LIST OR AUDIO METHODS. A FOURTH EXPERIMENT UTILIZED 10 MALE COLLEGE STUDENTS WHO MADE A LAYERED ASSEMBLY BY FOLLOWING A TYPED LIST WITH THE FINGERTIP OF THE LEFT HAND, OR USING ONE SLIDE PER LAYER. THE SLIDES WERE MORE EFFECTIVE. A FIFTH EXPERIMENT UTILIZED 12 MALE COLLEGE STUDENTS WHO MADE A SIMULATED ELECTRICAL TERMINAL BOARD BY REFERRING TO A TYPED LIST, COLORED SLIDES OF THE ASSEMBLY, OR AUDIO TAPE RECORDING. ERRORS INCREASED FROM SLIDES TO LIST TO TAPE. IN ALL EXPERIMENTS PICTORIAL PRESENTATION WAS BEST FOR BOTH THE TIME AND ERROR CRITERIA. (EM)
