The Effects of Using Color Microfiche Upon Achievement in a Course on Interior Home Design.
Aleamoni, Lawrence M.; And Others
A study was devised to replicate an earlier study which examined the effects of using color microfiche on achievement in a course on interior home design. The microfiche contained representative slides taken from the class lectures. Subjects, who were 136 college students enrolled in the course, were divided into three groups: Group One was assigned to view the microfiche, Group Two was given the option of viewing the microfiche, and Group Three (the control) was not allowed to view the microfiche. While significant differences between treatment and control groups were not found in the original study, there were significant differences between Groups One and Two (treatment) and Group Three on a one-hour examination during the course. However, differences were only marginally significant on the final examination. There was no correlation between amount of time spent on microfiche and achievement. The findings were considered biased in two ways: subjects in the experimental group had more practice, and not all of the subjects in the treatment groups used the visuals. (SH)
