An Objective Evaluation of the Success of Audio-Tutorial Course in General Biology.
Arnwine, James E.; Juby, Bill
Twelve audio-tutorial stations were used for teaching a general biology course. Cassette tapes were substituted for class lectures and helped integrate laboratory procedures with lectures. Slides, drawings, living and preserved materials, and a variety of chemical experiments supplemented the tapes. Behavioral objectives and exercises along with tapes and visual aids for each unit were given to students. The instructor met with small groups of students for two 1-hour periods each week. To evaluate the success of the audio-tutorial method, conventional biology course grades were predicted for each of the 18 students in the experimental group. The attained grades of this group were higher than the predictions. (MS)
