A Comparison of Variable Time Compressed Speech and Normal Rate Speech Based on Time Spent and Performance in a Course Taught by Self-Instructional Methods.
Short, Sarah Harvey
The purpose of this study was to determine with precise measurements of time and carefully constructed posttests whether sighted students in a college course would save time and achieve higher scores when listening to cognitive information using variable time compressors as compared with students listening using normal speed tape recorders. The population for this study consisted of 90 college students enrolled in Nutrition and Food Science 115 at Syracuse University. It was concluded that sighted college students enrolled in a basic course taught by self-instruction methods earn significantly higher achievement scores when variable speed compressors are used to listen to the taped modules than when normal speed tape recorders are used to listen to the same cognitive information, and sighted college students enrolled in a basic course taught by self-instruction methods save significant amounts of time when variable speed compressors are used to listen to the tapes than when normal speed tape recorders are used.
