Analysis of Certain Components of the Audio-Tutorial System of Teaching.
Husband, David Dwight
In the "Integrated Quiz Session" of the audio-tutorial teaching system developed by Postlethwait, students were verbally evaluated on the quality of a "mini-lecture" on some object studied in an earlier independent study session. Three treatments were used to assess whether the threat of an oral grade in this quiz session had an effect on the amount of learning: oral grade given to the student selected by the instructor; no oral grade, instructor selects respondent; and no oral grade, respondent volunteers. The dependent variables were scores on the objective quiz following each quiz session and the final examination score. In none of the two way analyses of variance, performed after subgrouping students according to sex, ability level, anxiety level, and day on which the quiz was scheduled, were significant differences in achievement found.
