An Audio-Tutorial Model for First Year General Chemistry: An Operational Plan for Claremore Junior College.
Haggard, Floretta Faubion
The primary objective of this study was to determine the characteristics that should constitute an auto-tutorial program in first-year general chemistry at the junior college level. Specifically, this study was concerned with developing an auto-tutorial model for a first-year general chemistry class at Claremore Junior College using the derived characteristics. A sample of 59 junior college chemistry instructors, who had used auto-tutorial instruction, filled out and returned a questionnaire intended to obtain opinions and suggestions related to auto-tutorial chemistry programs and descriptions of existing programs. Included in the recommendations compiled from the questionnaires were that ten units should be offered, unit exams should make up the preponderance of the evaluative process, and that the course should have a maximum of three instructors, with consultants hired as needed. The following provisions were recommended: a workbook with problems as the major area of content; a syllabus and an information sheet containing the reading texts, room assignments, grading procedures, and the structure of the course; specifically stated behavioral objectives formulated by the instructors currently involved in the course; an independent study and an assembly room with demonstration tables, blackboards, and projection devices; and movies, filmloops, and cassette tapes with the voice of one of the instructors currently involved in the course.
