The Effectiveness of Video-Autotutorial Instruction for a Very Large Enrollment University Course in Science.
Fisher, Kathleen M.; And Others
The effectiveness of video-autotutorial instruction in a large enrollment course was contrasted to more traditional instructional approaches. Subjects were 555 students enrolled in introductory genetics courses at three University of California campuses. The experimental approach used 25-minute videotape modules, a detailed syllabus, and a learning center staffed by faculty and teaching assistants. One-way analyses of variance on both pretest and final test scores indicated significant differences among the groups. Multiple regression analyses were performed to estimate the relative contributions of student background variables, pretest performance, and instructional treatment on final test scores as the criterion of achievement. Considered singly, the most potent predictor was instructional treatment, followed by grade point average, and then pretest performance. (Author/MV)
