A Comparative Study of Filmstrip Utilization with Educable Mentally Handicapped Students.
Kochevar, Robert Eder
The primary purpose of this study was to determine the relative effectiveness of three methods of utilizing a filmstrip in teaching first aid to educable mentally handicapped students. The three methods used were: Method A--filmstrip, discussion, demonstration, filmstrip; Method B--filmstrip, filmstrip, discussion, demonstration; Method C--discussion, filmstrip, demonstration, filmstrip versus Method D (control)--discussion, demonstration. Criterion instruments used were a first aid subject matter test, and a practical first aid psychomotor knowledge and skills test. The experiment was carried out at six Denver, Colorado junior high schools during the spring semester, 1970 with 218 students. Based on the findings, it was concluded that teaching educable mentally handicapped students with the aid of a filmstrip results in significant learning. Methods A and B, using a filmstrip to introduce a unit, together with repeating the filmstrip immediately were the best methods of utilizing a filmstrip when attempting to teach educable mentally handicapped students. There is a significant difference in learning when educable mentally handicapped students are evaluated on the basis of actual cognitive knowledge gained versus written expression when retention is a criterion as measured by the evaluative instruments utilized in this study.
