Broadcast Evaluation Report Number Four: Industrial Chemistry Component 524: TV7 R3.
The Institute of Educational Technology of the British Open University evaluated an Open University broadcast course in the chemistry of carbon compounds. Industrial chemistry was a separate but parallel component of the course which was presented by television and radio broadcast. Questionnaires, telephone interviews, and group discussions were used to evaluate the television and radio presentation of the industrial chemistry component. By the end of the course, students recognized the unit as worthwhile. The television program was viewed by most of the students, and they praised the production as clear and informative. The radio talk broadcast received some criticism and only about one-third of the students listened to it. Students who missed both the television and radio programs were twice as likely to fail or to withdraw from the course as students who missed neither. (CH)
