The Comparative Effectiveness of Programmed Instruction, Educational Television, and Traditional Teaching of a Unit on Human Biology in Selected Elementary Schools.
Thornton, William Terrance
A 35-item multiple choice test was used before and after instruction of 452 grade six students in a unit introducing human biology. The material was taught by six linear programmed lessons, six 20-minute television lessons, by traditional classroom methods, or combinations of these. Traditional classroom teaching produced significantly higher student achievement than educational television or programmed instruction used alone or in combination, and no significant difference in achievement when compared to a combination of all three methods. Educational television and programmed instruction used alone or in combination produced no greater achievement than no science instruction. (Author/AL)
