Training Effectiveness of Films Developed Using Systems Approach to Training Principles.
Biersner, Robert J.
Two films, "Oxygen Breathing Apparatus Type A-3" and "Damage Control Petty Officer," were developed using an educational systems approach and based on 15 behavioral objectives. The effectiveness of each film was tested using three samples: one which was pretested, viewed the film, and was posttested; another which was pretested and posttested but did not view the film; and another which was tested without viewing the film. Results showed that viewing the film significantly improved posttest scores, especially for viewers of high intelligence, but the films failed to achieve the 80 percent proficiency which had been desired. Though modifications will be necessary to make the films meet minimal achievement standards, both films showed themselves to be significant aids in the instructional process. The report discusses in detail the statistical significance of the test results. (EMH)
