Focused Feedback With Video Tape As An Aid In Counseling Underachieving College Freshmen. Final Report.
Valine, Warren J.
This study examines the relative effectiveness of 3 group counseling techniques and a control group in counseling with underachieving college freshmen. The effectiveness of each method was determined through comparison of grade point averages (GPA) as well as by pre- and post-test scores on selected self concept variables of the Tennessee Self Concept Scale and the Edwards Personal Preference Schedule. Seventy-three students were randomly placed in one of the 4 groups: (1) Immediate Feedback via videotape; (2) Delayed Feedback via videotape; (3) Non Video; and (4) control. Results reveal no significant differences either on GPA or on measured self concept variables with one exception. Participant responses on a Student Evaluation Questionnaire, however, were generally favorable to the use of videotape in group counseling. Suggestions for further research are made. (TL)
