The Image-Accumulation Technique as a Variable in Multiple-Image Communication.
Tam, Peter Tim-Kui; Reeve, Robert H.
A study was conducted to determine the relative effectiveness of various techniques of accumulating and organizing images in multiple-screen, slide-tape presentations of geographical information. Identical stimulus materials were presented in five different ways from sequential presentation to accumulated presentation to programed accumulated presentation. A two-part test was developed to determine the comprehension of the image relationships and the comprehension of individual pictures and narration. A two-way analysis of variance was used on the resulting data. No significant differences were found in relative effectiveness among the five modes of presentation, in the mean scores between the males and females, or in the interaction effects between the sex and the modes of presentation. The highest mean scores on one part of the test were achieved using the programed image accumulation technique. This indicates that this mode of presentation might be significant over a longer instructional period. (JY)
