Audio-Tutorial in Art History.
An audio-tutorial approach for an art history course taught at San Jose State College in the fall semester 1973 is evaluated by the Project Director and by an Evaluation Consultant. The teaching method combines several techniques: a weekly film presentation, filmstrips and audio tapes to be used in individual audio-tutorial sessions, a study guide containing slide lists and work sheets for each filmstrip unit, coordinated reading assignments, and weekly discussion groups. The Project Director's report summarizes the advantages and disadvantages of the method, evaluates questionnaires and comments from the students, and provides data such as time and material required to develop the program and recommendations for further use of the method. The purpose of the Consultant's evaluation was to study three questions: (1) Are student attitudes about the instructional methods, participation in discussion, and time spent related to final exam scores? (2) Are student grade point averages related to attitudes about methods, attendance, exam scores, and total points earned? (3) Do students in the course achieve differently on the final exam than students taught by other methods? The Consultant's methods and procedures, findings, summary, and sample questionnaire are included. (Author/JAB)
