An Evaluation of Operation Moonvigil. Number 14.
Virgin, Albert E.
An evaluation assessed the simulation game called "Operation Moonvigil". The program consisted of eight daily five minute telecasts followed by 30 minutes of classroom activities based on information communicated during the telecast. Teachers, pupils, and non-participant observers provided data through questionnaires, diaries, and observation records. Student participation was high on the first five days, but lower on the final two. Three-quarters of the classes had initial difficulty in following directions, but improvement occurred later. Teacher participation ranged widely from total withdrawal to major modification of the game. Teachers who attended pre-game workshops rated them highly. They also felt that students achieved the objectives of the game and said they would recommend "Moonvigil" to their teaching colleagues and play the game again. Teachers did express concern about the low level of students' television listening and group interaction skills and also recommended that the pre-game workshops be expanded and made mandatory.
