Comparability of Group Television and Teacher Administration of a Florida Reading Assessment Instrument.
Hegstrom, William J.; Phillips, William E.
A study was conducted to examine the feasibility of using instructional television as a means of standardizing countywide testing. Two reading assessment instruments were administered to second and fourth grade students through an oral instructional television reading of the items and through an oral reading by classroom teachers. Results showed that both second and fourth graders performed significantly better when the items were administered by teachers, although there were several explanations for these results which do not necessarily include that television may not be a better means of administering tests.
