Motor Activity Programs Designed for Teaching Supportive Personnel in Physical Therapy. Final Report.
McDaniel, Lucy V.; And Others
A study developed a format for the programed instruction of various physical therapy skills to paramedical personnel. Principles of motor learning and programed instruction served as a guide. An effective first practice and several formats for a second practice evolved. Mandatory second practice with a branching format that allowed students to rehearse difficult sections to correct errors proved most effective. Instructor's guides were prepared, then programs were field tested in hospitals and schools. Field tests showed the programs to meet an error rate criterion of less than ten per cent. Full description of program contents and results is included along with appendices. (RB)
