Effectiveness of Prepared Instruction Units in Teaching the Principles of Internal Combustion Engine Operation and Maintenance. Technical Bulletin No. 192.
Jacobs, Clinton O.
The report is an evaluation of the effectiveness of the 12 instructional units developed around the use of the Briggs-Stratton Model 80302, 3HP, 8 cu. in. displacement engine having a fuel induction system similar in construction to farm tractor types. The evaluation procedure used was the "one-group Pre-test and Post-test" research method. The evaluation instrument used in the testing program consisted of 45 selected multiple choice questions drawn from the original 60 questions used in the pilot testing program. In general, there was an overall improvement from pretest to posttest in a student's performance indicating that instructional material was effective. Lists of student reference literature, basic tool sets, secondary tool sets, special laboratory equipment, the evaluation instrument, and a nine-item bibliography conclude the document. (Author/BP)
