AN EXPERIMENTAL STUDY UTILIZING CLOSED CIRCUIT TELEVISION IN AN INDUSTRIAL ARTS TEAM TEACHING PROGRAM. FINAL REPORT.
JAQUITH, CHARLES E.; AND OTHERS
BASIC OBJECTIVES OF THIS EXPERIMENT WERE TO USE TEAM TEACHING BY TV TO HELP STUDENTS GAIN A REALISTIC VIEW OF THE INDUSTRIAL PROCESS AND OF THE IMPORTANCE OF EDUCATION AND TRAINING FOR PARTICIPATION IN THAT PROCESS. GRADE EIGHT STUDENTS IN AN INDUSTRIAL COMMUNITY WERE PLACED IN AN EXPERIMENTAL AND A CONTROL GROUP, AND EXPOSED TO INSTRUCTION FROM THE SAME TWO TEACHERS DURING ONE SCHOOL YEAR. STANDARDIZED ABILITY AND INTEREST TESTS WERE ADMINISTERED DURING AND AFTER THE EXPERIMENT, AND ACHIEVEMENT TESTS AND TEACHER EVALUATIONS WERE USED THROUGHOUT THE YEAR. DESCRIPTIVE STATISTICAL DATA SHOWED SIGNIFICANT INCREASES IN MECHANICAL INTEREST BY THE EXPERIMENTAL GROUP, AND INCREASES IN TECHNICAL KNOWLEDGE BY THE CONTROL GROUP. MECHANICAL ABILITY OF BOTH GROUPS INCREASED AT ABOUT THE SAME RATE. THE LIVE TV AND VIDEO-TAPED DEMONSTRATIONS PRESENTED TO THE EXPERIMENTAL GROUP WERE DEEMED VERY EFFECTIVE BY BOTH TEACHER EVALUATION AND STANDARD TEST RESULTS. RESULTS OF THE USE OF PERSONALITY INVENTORIES WERE QUESTIONED. IT WAS RECOMMENDED THAT THE PROJECT BE EXTENDED A SECOND YEAR TO PRECLUDE A POSSIBLE "HAWTHORNE EFFECT." (LH)
