A Comparative Study of Two Laboratory Teaching Methods. Final Report.
Calentine, Robert L.
A group of introductory college biology students using microscopic slides was compared to another group viewing photographic transparencies in addition to the microscopic slides. Students taught without the supplementary aids performed significantly better on examination questions dealing with the laboratory portion of the course. This unexpected result may have been caused by insufficient time available for students using transparencies to study all available materials, and a tendency for them to reduce the time spent on the actual microscopic slide items.
