An Experimental Evaluation of an Audio-Tutorial System.
Kennedy, Kyran
As educators become more interested in providing an environment and atmosphere which are conducive to independent learning and study activities, it is increasingly important that students be able to systematically coordinate their research skills in order to effectively use a centralized instructional materials center. To test the effectiveness of an audio-tutorial system designed to provide instruction in information retrieval and selection through actual search problems, 60 students in the 6th grade were divided into two groups; one group used the system, the other did not. The differences between these two groups were assessed. Results showed that those students who had participated in the system had more favorable attitudes toward the library and did better on a subsequent posttest of their library searching skills. (SH)
