Comparison of Three Media Presentations of Selected Home Economics Occupations.
Manning, Doris E.; Graham, Nancy
The study was designed to test the effectiveness of three media approaches in presenting home economics career information to students. Taped interviews with three home economists in the fields of food service, child care, and fabric and fashion served as the basis for developing the presentations: (1) a tape recording, (2) tape-slide presentation, and (3) printed career capsules developed from the interviews. High school sophomores in core classes were selected for field testing. Using pretests and post-tests, instruments were developed to determine students' knowledge and feelings about these career areas, their feelings about ways to learn them, and their perceptions of what they had learned and how they learned best. Variables in analyzing the data were type of media, career cluster, and sex of respondent. Results of the 125 students tested did not indicate any consistent differences with respect to effectiveness among the media. Although certain dissimilarities were found, no trends throughout the entire study were apparent. The slide-tape was preferred by both students and teachers who felt this to be the most effective approach to learning. Production costs for tape, slide-tape, and career capsules are included, and the topics suggested for interviews and the test instruments are appended. (RG)
