Evaluating an Experimental Audio-Visual Module Programmed to Teach a Basic Anatomical and Physiological System.
The learning efficiency and effectiveness of teaching an anatomical and physiological system to Air Force enlisted trainees utilizing an experimental audiovisual programed module was compared to that of a commercial linear programed text. It was demonstrated that the audiovisual programed approach to training was more efficient than and equally as effective as the programed text approach to training. It was determined that trainees of different learning abilities acquired as much knowledge about the digestive system from viewing the 20-minute audiovisual module as from interacting for 80 to 120 minutes with the programed text. It was established that students who differed in their mastery of the rudiments of anatomy, physiology, and medical terminology performed equally well after audiovisual instruction or after writte programed instruction. It was found that trainees reported more positive reactions to the audiovisual course than to the written program. (Author/JY)
