An Experimental Study of the Effectiveness of the Use of Video-Playbacks in Teaching the Undergraduate Basic Speech Course to Under-Achieving, Culturally and Socially Disadvantaged College Youth.
Hawkins, Robert; Engbretson, Robert
The object of this study was to measure videotape recorded playbacks as a variable in mastery of a basic speech course in an experimental college program for low income underachieving students. The beginning speech course is required of all these students in the Experiment in Higher Education at Southern Illinois University. Experimental and control groups (E- and C-groups) were set up after the fourth week of the course. The experimental variable was the use of the video trainer equipment (camera, monitor, and tape recorder) as an adjunct to the instructor's oral critique and written evaluations of student assignments. Findings are reported in two parts. Part I, the results and conclusions of comparisons of E- and C-group scores on tests, critics' evaluations, and self evaluations, notes no differences between the two groups. In fact, the video playbacks may have had a detrimental effect on the E-group. Part II, findings based on semantic differential scales, reports that the self-safety factor and total-self measures were the only significant differences. (NH)
