A STUDY TO EXPLORE THE EFFECTIVENESS OF COLOR PHOTOGRAPHS IN INTRINSICALLY PROGRAMED AUTOMATED INSTRUCTIONAL MATERIALS. FINAL REPORT.
RUST, GROSVENOR C.
COLLEGE FRESHMEN VOLUNTEERED FOR THIS LABORATORY EXPERIMENT USING SELF PACING ON INDIVIDUAL TEACHING MACHINES FOR LIBRARY ORIENTATION. SLIDES PRESENTED TO ONE GROUP (COL) COMBINED COLOR PHOTOGRAPHS AND PRINT, WHILE THE OTHER GROUP (PRN) SAW SLIDES WITH ONLY PRINT CONTENT. PRE-TESTS INCLUDED STANDARD ABILITY TESTS, AND A LIBRARY USAGE TEST, ALSO ADMINISTERED AFTER THE EXPERIMENT. THE TWO GROUPS (N-64) SHOWED NO SIGNIFICANT DIFFERENCES IN GAIN SCORES ON THE USAGE TEST, NOR IN TIME SPENT ON THE PROGRAM. LOW ABILITY STUDENTS PROFITED MORE FROM THE COL VERSION. BEHAVIOR REQUIRED DURING THE PROGRAM WAS EVALUATED FOR EACH SUBJECT ON A SPECIAL SCALE BY AN OBSERVER, AND THE COL GROUP PERFORMED SIGNIFICANTLY BETTER. THERE WERE NO DIFFERENCES IN ERROR RATE, BUT THE COL GROUP COMPLETED BRANCHING FRAMES SIGNIFICANTLY BETTER. A SLIGHTLY REFINED REPLICATION FOR UPPER DIVISION COLLEGE STUDENTS SHOWED RELIABILITY OF THE USAGE AND PERFORMANCE TESTS, AND SIGNIFICANT DIFFERENCES ON GAIN SCORES AND PERFORMANCE IN FAVOR OF THE COL GROUP.
