Comparison of Super 8mm Silent Film Loops Presentation Versus Live Presentation for Teaching Machine Operations.
Cushing, Nelson Norman
The purpose of this study was to compare the teaching of machine operations using Super 8mm Silent Film Loops presentations with live presentations. Specific objectives were to determine if film loops are an effective technique for teaching machine operations, to determine the possibility of using them to keep education abreast of technological change, and to individualize instruction. The investigator developed a course of study, daily lesson plans, 52 film loops, and a presentation schedule for use in two randomly selected general metals classes. The method used was a parallel equated-group-rotational design, and the statistical treatment involved the Fisher's t-test, the Mann-Whitney U-test, the Mean, and Chi Square. Conclusions were that the techniques of instruction did not have a significant effect on the immediate achievement of knowledge, the retention of knowledge, or on the individual assistance required of the instructor when instructor-produced films were used. It did have a significant effect on amount of instructor assistance when commercial films were used and students considered instructor films superior to commercial films. It was concluded that film presentations are effective for teaching machine operations. (GEB)
