An Evaluation of Three Instructional Media as Supplements to a Graduate Course in Educational Statistics.
State Univ. of New York, Buffalo. Instructional Communication Center.
A laboratory taught by a graduate assistant, a programed instruction textbook, and computer-assisted instruction (CAI) were evaluated comparatively as supplemental instruction in a graduate course entitled "Statistical Methods in Education" at the State University of New York at Buffalo. The experimental population of 64 students was divided unevenly and at random to represent each of the three treatments. Evaluation was based on two factors related to course objectives: cognitive material learned and student "affect" determined by questionnaire. While the study revealed no significant differences among the supplementary media used, students received the programed materials more favorably than the laboratory. To strengthen experimental controls, a revised CAI program and additional tutorial help are indicated. (TI)
