The Influence of the Passage of Time on Effects Resulting From Viewing Film on Drug Abuse.
Schell, William Raymond
Examined was the influence of the passage of time on the effects resulting from viewing an instructional film and to corroborate the findings of a similar, earlier study. Eighth grade students (829) of a California suburban school district were assigned, in random groups, to varied treatments involving pretesting, film viewing, immediate posttesting, and delayed posttesting. A test designed to reflect local curricular objectives for a school program on drugs and narcotics was administered utilizing "fact" questions and statements on how the student "should" behave, and "would" behave. Level of significance at the 0.05 level revealed the following: (1) Immediate gains on "should" questions were no longer discernible nine weeks following film viewing; (2) Of the groups exposed to only the "fact" posttest, those taking the delayed test performed significantly less well than those tested immediately after film exposure; (3) "Would" questions showed smaller gains for film groups both on the immediate and on the delayed posttests than those found for the control groups viewing no film.
