Uses of Video Tape in Sociometric Testing at the North Hills Project.
Damron, Wilbur T.
A study was devised to test usefulness of sociometric techniques and videotaping with retarded subjects. There were four levels of utilization of videotaping used in the project. Retarded children participated in all conditions, and one child was also allowed to view playback of himself from a testing session. Normal children were used in testing with photographs (with videotapes being used for storage and analysis) and also for video of games. General findings indicate that retarded children seemed to be less distracted by the videotape equipment, that there might be some therapeutic value in allowing retarded subjects view their own activities, and that there appears to be a direct correlation between results (for sociometric testing) of using photographs and video methods.
