The Preparation, Implementation and Beginning Evaluation of a Revised Undergraduate Elementary Science Teachers Course at Howard University.
Howard Univ., Washington, DC.
Faced with the current situation of instructional aids that are mediocre and untested, Howard University has revised its undergraduate elementary science teachers course to include instruction on programmed materials. The course is based on the concepts of cybernetics (science of control and communications) and of teaching students the idea of applying the systems approach to the activities of teaching/learning and criterion-referenced testing. Criterion tests with a stimulus-response format and programmed instruction in teaching machines and audiovisual aids were introduced and used in the course. A questionnaire was sent to ex-members of the program to indicate attitudes and use of programmed materials. (JA)
