Valencia, Atilano A.
The instructional effectiveness of videotaped instruction in basic oral English to non-English speaking, adult speakers of Spanish is the focus of this report. A field testing program involving subjects who had been exposed to the films developed by the Southwestern Cooperative Educational Laboratory ascertains the effectiveness of the lessons in each of the films in terms of predetermined behavioral objectives. Three testing conditions were envisaged and are examined in this study: a classroom condition with video exposure only; a classroom condition with video exposure and followup drills by an instructor; and a home condition with video exposure only. This four-part report covers: (1) principal features of the field testing program, (2) criterion variables and statistical design, (3) statistical analysis and findings, and (4) summary, conclusions, and recommendations. Appendixes contain a sample field testing instrument and various statistical tables. (RL)
