DEVELOPMENT, TESTING, AND EVALUATION OF A PROGRAMED METHOD FOR THE TEACHING OF I.P.A. TRANSCRIPTION. FINAL REPORT.
DOETKOTT, RICHARD P.; WOMACK, WILLIAM G.
THIS STUDY WAS DESIGNED TO FIND AN EFFECTIVE GROUP-TEACHING METHOD FOR THE TRAINING OF STUDENTS IN GENERAL AMERICAN SPEECH TRANSCRIPTION, USING THE INTERNATIONAL PHONETIC ALPHABET (IPA). THE METHOD CHOSEN INCLUDED THE USE OF PROGRAMED TAPE RECORDINGS AND WORKBOOKS. THE CHAPMAN COLLEGE TEST POPULATION WAS THE CLASS IN "INTRODUCTION TO GENERAL AMERICAN PHONETICS," A TWO-UNIT SEMESTER COURSE MEETING ONCE A WEEK FOR TWO HOURS, IN WHICH IPA TRANSCRIPTION IS ORDINARILY AND PRIMARILY TAUGHT. ALL 11 STUDENTS WHO ENROLLED FINISHED THE PROGRAM, WHICH REQUIRED 26 HOURS OF CLASS (WITH NO HOMEWORK) AND INCLUDED A TOTAL OF 7,915 RESPONSE ITEMS. SCORES ON THE ENTIRE PROGRAM REVEALED THAT OVER 90 PERCENT OF THE SUBJECTS RETAINED OVER 90 PERCENT OF THE MATERIAL. THIS WAS SUPERIOR TO THE PERFORMANCE OF THE SAME INSTRUCTOR'S CLASSES IN THIS SUBJECT OVER THE PREVIOUS FOUR YEARS. THE AUTHORS CONCLUDED THAT THE PROGRAM TAUGHT AT A HIGH LEVEL OF PROFICIENCY AND THAT A GROUP AURAL-PROGRAMED METHOD OF TEACHING IPA TRANSCRIPTION HAS MERIT. THEY RECOMMENDED THAT THE PROGRAM BE REVISED TO SHORTEN COMPLETION TIME AND THAT A LARGER SCALE TEST BE CONDUCTED, WITH THE IDEA OF BROADENING THE APPLICATION OF THE PROGRAM TO LARGER CLASSES AND LESS EXPERIENCED INSTRUCTORS.
