A Methodological Study Evaluating a Pretutorial Computer-Compiled Instructional Program in High School Physics Instruction Initiated from Student-Teacher Selected Instructional Objectives. Final Report.
Leonard, B. Charles; Denton, Jon J.
A study sought to develop and evaluate an instructional model which utilized the computer to produce individually prescribed instructional guides to account for the idiosyncratic variations among students in physics classes at the secondary school level. The students in the treatment groups were oriented toward the practices of selecting behavioral objectives from objective planning sheets, using computer-produced instructional guides, and accepting individual responsibility for learning. When achievement level was measured by a group achievement test, no significant difference was found between control and treatment groups. However when achievement level was measured by the number of objectives mastered, the treatment groups did significantly better. Neither learning efficiency nor attitudes toward the physics course was significantly changed by utilizing an individualized teaching model. (JY)
