A Study of the Relative Effectiveness of Programed Visual Materials and Non-Programed Visual Materials in the Laboratory Sections of a College General Biology Course.
Earl, Paul Frederick
General biology laboratory sections were assigned at random to four treatment groups. The four control sections used the normal laboratory manual and examined prepared slides with the laboratory microscope; four sections were assigned to each of the three experimental groups that used a linear programed manual with either 35 mm color photomicrographs, microscope slides and microscope, or a combination of photomicrographs with microscope slides and microscopes. There were no significant differences between the four groups on any of the three measures administered at the end of the semester. The instruments used were developed for this study and measured biological information, interest in science, and the ability to identify microscopic specimens. There were no relationships with sex or IQ. Suggestions for further research and notes on instructional techniques using flexible materials are included. (Author/AL)
