Selective Review of the Results of Research on the Use of Audiovisual Media to Teach Adults.
Campeau, Peggie L.
The purpose of this literature review was to summarize results of experimental studies on the instructional effectiveness of audiovisual media in post-secondary education. Studies which met seven major screening criteria were used. A study was generally accepted if it compared performance of experimental and control groups on objective measures of cognitive achievement. Of 200 items studied in detail, only about a dozen met screening criteria. These are summarized under the following headings: programed instruction (the largest group); television, videotape, and motion pictures; slides, filmstrips, overhead transparencies, and still pictures; radio and tape recordings; and multiple media. A closing section enumerates common methodological defects in recent media research. It is proposed that potentially interacting variables be 1) defined according to some theoretical framework, 2) used in multivariate designs, and 3) taken into account in planning more multi-media studies. More effort should also be devoted to replication and follow-up studies. (Author/JK)
