Adapting Varied Visual Illustrations for Optimum Teaching and Learning.
Dwyer, Francis M., Jr.
Several studies were conducted which investigated certain variables associated with visualized instruction. In these studies an evaluation was made of abstract line drawings, detailed shaded drawings, and photographs. The material was presented by tape recording, television, or a programed format and supplemented by one of the aids. Posttesting was done to evaluate the relative merits of each visual aid under each method of presentation with reference to a drawing test, an identification test, a terminology test, a comprehension test, and a total criterial test. The students were asked which visual aid they preferred and an analysis was performed to see if there was a correlation between preference and effectiveness. An additional study was performed adding a model to the previously mentioned visual aids for evaluation. The results of these studies form the basis of a number of generalizations which may be helpful in guiding the production and use of visual illustrations used for instructional purposes. A reference list is appended. (JY)
