Multiple-Image and Narrative Formats in Teaching Intermediate-Grade Science.
Yolles, Richard Sigmund
The examiner explored the relative effectiveness of multi-media presentations for introducing science lessons to fourth-, fifth-, and sixth-grade students. The major design variables were the pattern of sequencing used to display the visual content and the quality of voice selected. Four slide-tapes were prepared. Either a traditional or simultaneous format was used to project the multi-images contained in the three screen presentations. Intact classes were randomly assigned to each of the four experimental treatments. After the presentation, tests were administered. Analyses of variance derived by Biomedical Computer Program X64 were used to determine significant differences between formats and experimental variables. For students in grades four and six, the difference between visual formats was statistically significant in favor of the simultaneous pattern of display. No significant interaction effects were generated between the experimental variables or between the adult- and peer-voice formats. It was concluded that the simultaneous method of visual sequencing was a generally more effective multi-media technique. (Author/EB)
