EFFECTIVENESS OF FILM IN CHANGING PARENTAL ATTITUDES. FINAL REPORT.
HANSON, MARVIN L.
PRECEDING AND FOLLOWING THE SHOWING OF A COLOR AND SOUND FILM DESIGNED TO EDUCATE PARENTS CONCERNING THE IMPORTANCE OF THEIR ROLE IN THE DEVELOPMENT OF NORMAL SPEECH HABITS IN THEIR CHILDREN, TWO FORMS OF AN ATTITUDE QUESTIONNAIRE (APPARENTLY NOT TESTED FOR RELIABILITY) WERE FILLED OUT BY AN AUDIENCE OF 56 PARENTS OF CHILDREN WITH ARTICULATION PROBLEMS AND 171 PARENTS OF NORMAL CHILDREN. EIGHTY-EIGHT RESPONDENTS HAPPENED TO COMPLETE FORM A FIRST, AND THEN THEY COMPLETED FORM B AFTER SEEING THE FILM. THE REMAINDER OF THE AUDIENCE COMPLETED THE QUESTIONNAIRE IN REVERSE ORDER AND A RANDOM SAMPLE OF 88 OF THESE RESPONDENTS WAS CHOSEN FOR COMPARISON WITH THE FIRST GROUP. COMPARISONS OF BEFORE/AFTER SCORES FOR BOTH GROUPS SHOWED STATISTICALLY SIGNIFICANT ATTITUDES CHANGE IN THE DESIRED DIRECTION. A FILM EVALUATION QUESTIONNAIRE ELICITED A RATING OF "EXCELLENT" FROM 30 PERCENT OF THE AUDIENCE AND "VERY GOOD" FROM 50 PERCENT. NO "POOR" OR "VERY POOR" RATINGS WERE GIVEN. THE PRODUCTION OF SIMILAR FILMS IS RECOMMENDED. (RS)
