The Efficacy of Sound-Motion Pictures as Instructional Media. Final Report. Revised Edition.
Irwin, Ruth Beckey; Nickles, Aleki
Four 5-minute films on articulation were produced and evaluated for a study on the effectiveness of film in providing preservice clinical experience for speech clinicians. Subjects were divided into experimental groups composed of students in an introductory speech course (Group One), beginning speech majors (Group Two), experienced speech clinicians (Group Three), speech majors who had completed a course in speech pathology (Group Four), and speech majors in a clinical methods course in speech therapy (Group Five). After viewing the films, all groups completed evaluative tests which were designed to determine acoustic, visual, and therapeutic observational accuracy. Group Five completed the tests before and after individual viewing and discussion of the films. Test data were analyzed; results showed that Groups Three, Four, and Five performed significantly better than did Groups One and Two, and that posttest results for Group Five were better in all areas of observational accuracy than the other groups. Also, correlation analyses showed that visual, acoustic, and therapeutic observational accuracy scores were related to combined scores of observational accuracy. Results of this study appear to support the use of films in clinical speech pathology. [Not available in microfiche or hard copy due to marginal legibility of original document.] (SM)
