THE NATIONAL CENTER FOR SCHOOL AND COLLEGE TELEVISION--A DEMONSTRATION OF A NATIONAL PROGRAM AGENCY FOR INSTRUCTIONAL TELEVISION. FINAL REPORT.
JORDAN, JAMES R.
THE NATIONAL CENTER FOR SCHOOL AND COLLEGE TELEVISION WAS ESTABLISHED IN 1965 BY THE OFFICE OF EDUCATION AND THE INDIANA UNIVERSITY FOUNDATION AS A PERMANENT AGENCY TO PROVIDE QUALITY INSTRUCTIONAL TELEVISION MATERIALS AND COURSE DISTRIBUTION ON A NATIONAL SCALE. NCSCT MAKES MATERIALS AVAILABLE BY EVALUATION, ACQUISITION, REVISION, AND PRODUCTION, ENGAGES IN NATIONWIDE LIAISON WORK WITH TEACHERS, ADMINISTRATORS, AND ITV PERSONNEL, AND ACTS AS A CENTER OF INFORMATION ON INSTRUCTIONAL TELEVISION BY COLLECTING, ANALYZING, AND DISSEMINATING DATA. FINDINGS OF ITS TWO-YEAR DEMONSTRATION PROGRAM ARE--(1) THE EDUCATIONAL USE OF TELEVISION WILL EXPAND, CREATING GREATER NEED FOR EFFECTIVE MATERIALS, (2) FEW MATERIALS PRODUCED FOR LOCAL SCHEDULING ARE SUITABLE FOR WIDESPREAD USE, (3) A HIGH PERCENTAGE OF REUSE INDICATES THAT THE CENTER'S MATERIALS ARE SATISFACTORY, (4) ACCELERATED NCSCT ACTIVITY IS NEEDED MOST IN ELEMENTARY EDUCATION, (5) NSCST'S MATERIALS, RESEARCH, AND DISSEMINATION WILL STIMULATE WISER USE OF TELEVISION, AND (6) PROFESSIONAL EDUCATIONAL ORGANIZATIONS AND SCHOOL SYSTEMS WILL COMMIT RESOURCES TO NCSCT'S EFFORTS. APPENDICES INCLUDE REPORTS CONCERNED WITH THE NATIONAL INSTRUCTIONAL TELEVISION LIBRARY, THE IV LESSON EVALUATION FORM, NCSCT SUBJECT AREA ASSESSMENTS, PRELIMINARY CONCLUSIONS, TABLES, AND A LIST OF AVAILABLE MATERIALS.
