The Relationship Between Televised Instruction and Cognitive Performance, Attitude Change, and Self-Reported Behavior Change in Sub-Groups With Varying Backgrounds and Characteristics.
Cory, Genevieve Hansen
Six groups of disadvantaged, unemployed adults in vocational training centers were measured for cognitive performance gain, attitude change, and self-reported behavior change after a televised course in consumer information. The course consisted of 16 half hour programs which used a non-classroom format followed by discussions. General conclusions of the study were that community colleges can serve the disadvantaged using open-circuit television to give consumer information; televised instruction is acceptable to the disadvantaged; learning experiences at the receiving end should be adapted to groups and individuals; the severely disadvantaged seem "locked in" and need educational help beyond information; courses for the severely disadvantaged should be short; future research should probe characteristics of the disadvantaged and their learning patterns; and the development and refinement of consumer attitude measures should continue.
