A COMPARISON OF RESPONSE CONFIRMATION TECHNIQUES FOR AN ADJUNCTIVE SELF-STUDY PROGRAM.
MEYER, DONALD E.
AN EXPERIMENT COMPARED THE EFFECTIVENESS OF FOUR METHODS OF CONFIRMING RESPONSES TO AN ADJUNCTIVE SELF-STUDY PROGRAM. THE PROGRAM WAS DESIGNED FOR AIR FORCE AIRCREWS UNDERTAKING A REFRESHER COURSE IN ENGINEERING. A SERIES OF SEQUENCED MULTIPLE CHOICE QUESTIONS EACH REFERRED TO A PAGE AND PARAGRAPH OF A PUBLICATION CONTAINING DETAILED INFORMATION ON THE QUESTIONS. IF A RESPONSE WAS CORRECT THE STUDENT CONTINUED TO THE NEXT QUESTION. IF A RESPONSE WAS INCORRECT HE REFERRED TO THE PUBLICATION. THE METHODS OF RESPONSE CONFIRMATION WERE (1) CHEMICALLY IMPREGNATED INKS WHICH CHANGED COLOR WHEN MOISTENED WITH A WETTING AGENT, (2) PUNCHBOARDS, (3) OPAQUE ERASABLE OVERLAYS, AND (4) A MACHINE WITH A LIGHTING AND BUZZING SYSTEM. NO SIGNIFICANT DIFFERENCES IN LEARNING WERE FOUND AS A RESULT OF THESE METHODS, NOR WERE THERE NOTABLE DIFFERENCES BETWEEN GROUP OPINIONS ABOUT THE METHODS USED. ON THIS BASIS, THE SELECTION OF A RESPONSE CONFIRMATION MODE FOR AN ADJUNCT PROGRAM MAY BE BASED UPON COST AND AVAILABILITY OF EQUIPMENT AND MATERIALS.
