Effectiveness Parameters for the Use of Educational Television From Space as a Supplemental Curricular Device.
Joels, Kerry Mark
Reported is a study to examine the achievement of students viewing two versions of a television presentation related to the Earth Resources program on the Skylab Space Station. One version was produced as a simulation of astronaut activities and the other as a standard studio educational television program. A test instrument was formulated for each of the programs, as well as an opinionnaire which was administered after the final test was taken. Other variables, sex, location, and treatment were tested for correlation relationships. Percentages of respondents to the cells on items in the opinionnaire were also completed. No significant difference was observed in the achievement in the SETV and the ETV groups at the 0.05 level of confidence. No significant correlation was observed between three groups of organismic variables: male-female, urban-rural, and Treatment 1-Treatment 2. The opinionnaire revealed a high degree of positive opinion with regard to the nature of the television programs and the concepts expressed in the programs. Approximately 60 percent of the respondents had favorable opinions on science as both a subject in school and as a segment of our society. The study demonstrated that Skylab Television was effective in a classroom situation. (Author/EB)
