The Relative Effectiveness of Three Types of Notes Used as Adjunct Study Activities to Group Audiovisual Instruction.
Lavin, Marvin H.
A graduate thesis investigated the value of notetaking and prepared notes as adjunctive activities in audiovisual instruction. In the first experiment, taking notes on prepared topic outlines was found to be better than taking notes on blank paper. In the second experiment, not taking on topic outlines and the use of study guides were shown to be similarly effective for both learning and retention. Printed introductions however had little effect. The conclusion is that printed material may be developed for guiding learners to specific content, for providing them with information vital to the understanding of a lesson, and for eliciting student participation when indicated.
