Teachers Evaluate Programmed Instruction, a Survey of Attitudes and Problems.
Canadian Teachers' Federation, Ottawa (Ontario). Research Div.
During the school year 1963-64, the Canadian Teachers Federation (CTF) distributed several thousand programs among 200 or more teachers and their pupils. This project was undertaken because programed instruction deserved more widespread trial and evaluation than it had received in most Canadian schools. The purposes of the project were (1) to give teachers first-hand experience with programed instruction, (2) to encourage teachers to evaluate the effectiveness of the programs under various conditions of use, and (3) to examine the impact of the project itself as a means of communication about educational innovations. The teachers who made use of the programs in their classes were sent an extensive questionnaire. The purpose of the survey were to determine the impact of the project upon the participants and to summarize their assessments of programed instruction. Results of the survey are indicated according to (1) background of the participants, (2) teacher knowledge of programed instruction, (3) teacher use of evaluation procedures, (4) teacher evaluation of programed instruction, and (5) attitudes toward research and innovation.
