Evaluation of Televised Electronics Instruction Program.
Gaddis, G. Warren
A research study in Utah had two objectives: 1) determine the extent of diseemination of a new vocational electronics curriculum guide among the state's electronics teachers, and 2) measure the value of an instructional television program for teachers as a means of disseminating the guide. Questionnaire results, which must be regarded as tentative due to limited returns, indicated that use of the guide was increasingly widespread and that it was employed mainly as a teaching guide and as a reference. Viewers responded that they were using new methods, materials and equipment and that they gave more attention to helping students to enter the labor market. Administrators were indifferent to the program and the electronics teachers remarked that other types of dissemination activities, such as workshops were also needed. It was recommended that future dissemination and instruction programs be revised to facilitate the examination of specific behaviors, that better evaluative strategies be developed, and that alternative dissemination and teacher inservice methods be considered and experimentally tested.
