A Study of the Effectiveness of Two Teaching Techniques in Driver Education Considering Ethnicity, Socioeconomic Status, and Sex as Contributing Sources of Variation.
Hall, Carroll
The use of 2 techniques for teaching the laboratory phase of a driver education program is compared and analyzed with respect to the ethnic background (Mexican American and Anglo), socioeconomic status, and sex differences of the students. The final sample consisted of 269 students from 7 secondary schools in El Paso, Texas. The basic difference in the instructional methods used for comparison was the inclusion of a driver simulator in one method opposed to no simulator in the other method. The results of this study imply that there is no apparent difference in the quality of instruction between the teaching techniques, nor is there any advantage of one treatment over the other when applied to a specific population.
