USE OF CLOSED CIRCUIT TELEVISION IN TEACHER EDUCATION, RELATIONSHIP TO ACHIEVEMENT AND SUBJECT MATTER UNDERSTANDING.
ABEL, FREDERICK PAUL
THE USEFULNESS OF CLOSED CIRCUIT TELEVISION AS A MEDIUM FOR THE OBSERVATION OF CLASSES BY STUDENTS IN A BEGINNING PROFESSIONAL EDUCATION COURSE AT THE UNIVERSITY OF MINNESOTA COLLEGE OF EDUCATION WAS STUDIED. THE EFFECTS OF THREE OBSERVATIONAL MEDIA--CLASSROOM VISITATION, CLOSED CIRCUIT TELEVISION DEMONSTRATIONS, AND INSTRUCTIONAL FILMS, WERE COMPARED ON SUBJECT MATTER OUTCOMES AND THE ABILITY TO APPLY KNOWLEDGE TO CLASSROOM SITUATIONS. THE MIDQUARTER AND FINAL EXAMINATIONS DESIGNED FOR THE COURSE AND A STANDARIZED TEST BATTERY BY HORROCKS AND TROYER, TESTS OF HUMAN GROWTH AND DEVELOPMENT, WERE USED TO MEASURE MASTERY AND APPLICATION. SIX LABORATORY SECTIONS WERE RANDOMLY ASSIGNED TO THE THREE OBSERVATIONAL TREATMENTS. AN ADDITIONAL SECTION SERVED AS A CONTROL. THE SECTIONS WERE COMPARABLE IN TERMS OF ACADEMIC ABILITY AND PRIOR KNOWLEDGE. EACH GROUP HAD A MAXIMUM OF FIVE OBSERVATIONS BY THE DOMINANT TREATMENT, FOLLOWED BY TWO SUPPLEMENTARY OBSERVATIONS INVOLVING EACH OF THE TWO OTHER METHODS. IT WAS FOUND THAT NO SIGNIFICANT DIFFERENCES EXISTED AMONG THE THREE MEDIA. THIS INDICATES THAT CLOSED CIRCUIT TELEVISION HOLDS PROMISE AS AN ECONOMICAL MEANS OF PROVIDING OBSERVATIONAL EXPERIENCES.
