The Effect of Instructional Television Utilization Techniques on Science Achievement in the Sixth Grade.
Santa Ana Unified School District, CA.
The effects of conventional classroom instruction, television instruction alone, and the combination of classroom and television instruction on the learning of science content and vocabulary by 470 sixth-grade students was tested. The three treatment groups were pre- and posttested to determine the degree of achievement each group attained. The effectiveness of the three treatment groups was determined on the basis of the percentage of students at three levels of achievement: high achievement, moderate achievement, and no achievement. The effect of instructional television on student achievement in science appeared to be related to the use of this medium by the classroom teacher. The combination of television and classroom instruction resulted in the greatest achievement and in a reduction of low achievers. There was no significant difference in results obtained by classroom instruction alone and televised instruction alone. (Author/JK)
