Science Programming and the Audiences for Public Television; An Evaluation of Five Programs in the NET "Spectrum" Series.
National Educational Television, New York, NY.
Questionnaires returned by science teachers across the country and reaction forms completed by selected high school, college, and adult learners, were analyzed to judge the impact of, and acceptance by public television audiences, of five half-hour programs broadcast in the "Spectrum" science series, produced with financial support from the National Science Foundation. A general significant knowledge gain was achieved by all three groups of learners; science teachers and learners surveyed reported satisfaction that science programs should be broadcast for the general public and that in addition to gaining a high rate of acceptance by laymen, the programs encouraged and maintained interest in science. (The document includes the questionnaire, study guides, selected questionnaire comments, adult sample responses on the seismology broadcast, and genetics reaction forms. One appendix removed because of poor reproducibility.) (author/ly)
