Videotaped Aids for Instruction in Educational Psychology: An Analysis of Variables Associated With Student Achievement.
Forst, Florence H.
Two ways of teaching a course in adolescent development and learning were compared. Sections of normal size were taught as usual, while large sections had instruction augmented with televised illustrations. With the exception of these illustrations, resources were the same for both classes and included a programed text. Results on two types of tests, information and behavioral judgment, showed that student achievement was equally high, regardless of size of class. Furthermore, the larger classes showed greater uniformity of scores than did the smaller classes. Achievement on information tests was not clearly related to achievement on behavioral judgment tests. First tests of either type were better indicators of students' final performance than was an information pre-test. Characteristics found to be significantly associated with higher achievement were sex, marital status, major in college, and grade point averages. One unexpected finding was that nonacademic students (those with majors in applied fields) performed better than academic students did on tests involving behavioral judgment. (Author/JK)
