Evaluation of a Media-Based Credit Course, "Developmental Psychology", Offered by Ryerson Open College. Report No. 35.
McLaughlin, G. Harry
Ryerson Open College in collaboration with the Ontario Educational Communications Authority, offered a multimedia, introductory credit course in psychology in 1972. An evaluation was completed based on two questionnaires, each completed by a majority of the enrolled students. Student grades and dropout rates were examined relative to students' age, sex, employment status, previous education, and socioeconomic status. Students also rated the relative merits of televised lectures, radio discussions, and other educational activities, and these results were correlated to demographic factors. The benefits and disadvantages of the multimedia, home-study approach were examined relative to its cost. (EMH)
