The Film Analyzer; Rapid Mass Learning. Technical Report.
Carpenter, C.R.; And Others
The need for suitable equipment for research and for evaluation of instructional films, led to the planning, designing, and constructing of a new recording system, the Film Analyzer. The Film Analyzer will record and time continuously a range of reactions and responses of individuals in groups up to a maximum of 40 people to various kinds of instructional and informational programs. There are three essential parts to the Film Analyzer. These are the polygraph recorder, the coding relays, and the individual response stations. These mechanisms are described in this report with the aid of pohtographs, diagrams and charts. The Film Analyzer is operated in conjunction with the Classroom Communicator which has been described in a separate report. Although the Film Analyzer was constructed for use in research and in the evaluation of complex types of instructional and informational programs, a wide range of other uses may prove to be desirable and feasible, and some practical applications of the equipment are suggested.
