A Study of the Effectiveness of Utilizing Individualized Filmstrips, Tapes and Coordinated Worksheets as Instructional Tools for Beginning College Mathematics Classes. Final Report.
Banister, Richard E.
This study compared the mean scores of the final examinations given to 2 populations of junior college students taking College Algebra by 2 instructional methods. The control group received instruction by the traditional approach of lectures and classroom discussion; while the experimental group had their lectures and discussions supplemented by multimedia lessons which could be taken in the college library outside of the regularly scheduled class period on a voluntary basis by those students that felt they needed extra instruction. A statistical treatment of the data using the T-test showed a significant difference in the achievement of the 2 groups. The experimental group's achievement was significantly higher than the control group's achievement at the 1% level of confidence. (Author)
