The Relative Effectiveness of Programmed Instruction and Cued-Videotape Modeling, With and Without Behavioral Feedback, on the Acquisition and Use of Interview Skills.
Toler, H. Curt
This study examined the effects of two different training techniques, with and without behavioral feedback, on the acquisition and use of four interviewer behaviors: head nods, minimal verbal stimuli, probes, and confrontations. Sixty subjects classified as field-independent or field-dependent were randomly assigned to one of five experimental treatments: (1) programmed instruction, (2) programmed instruction and feedback, (3) cued-videotape modeling, (4) cued-videotape modeling and feedback, and (5) no-treatment control. Significant multivariate results were found for training methods only and followed by post-hoc multiple discriminant analysis procedures. Results were interpreted as suggesting that behavioral feedback in combination with the instructional methods was more important in teaching the confrontation, and to a lesser extent, probing skills than the same instructional methods without feedback. Implications for training and recommendations for further research are discussed. (Author)
