A Comparison of Self Critique Using Video Tapes and Verbal Critique by the Instructor in Learning Psychomotor Skills. Final Report.
McKay, Rose P.; Harrison, Omeera Anne
A study was designed to determine if self-critique by videotapes of a practice session was as effective for teaching a nursing skill as were teacher critiques of the practice session. Seventy women nursing students were trichotomized by anxiety level and randomly assigned to either the self-critique with a procedure checklist treatment or to the teacher critique treatment. All subjects first viewed a teaching tape of the skill, participated in a practice session with one of the two critique treatments, and then completed two post critique performances of the procedure. Results of analyses indicated that the self-critique and teacher critique methods produced the same learning levels, with anxiety level of students having no significant effects. The major recommendation for future research is for investigation to determine if students learn similar procedures with less stress and anxiety when sequencing and patterning are first learned with models than if they are first learned with real patients.
