An Analysis of the Effectiveness of the Use of Autoinstructional Materials in the Teaching of PSSC Physics by Qualified Physics Teachers.
Siddiqi, Mohammed Nasim
The problem in this investigation was to determine if there is a significant difference in the mean level of achievement in Physical Science Study Committee (PSSC) physics between students using autoinstructional materials, supervised by a physics teacher, and students studying PSSC physics without such materials, under the guidance of a physics teacher. Six high schools supplied the 66 students for the experimental group and 105 students for the control group in a six-month study. Students of the experimental group used autoinstructional materials written for parts I and II of the second (1965) edition of PSSC as compared with the control group who were taught PSSC physics by their teacher in a conventional manner. With physics achievement scores for both groups adjusted for covariates, the experimental group demonstrated a statistically higher mean level. From student and teacher responses, several strengths to the autoinstructional mode of instruction were identified. (Author/CP)
