A Decade of Experimentation with the Audio-Tutorial System.
Mott, Charles J.
The audio-tutorial systems in earth science was developed at St. Petersburg Junior College in response to an unacceptable but not atypical student failure rate at the community college level. This description of the program includes: (1) history of program development, (2) use of student tutors, (3) experimentation with a student paced, mastery learning approach, (4) use of lecture tapes and transcripts, (5) comparison by sex in a self-pacing experiment, and (6) equipment employed. The audio-tutorial system resulted in a significant reduction in failure rate in the earth science course. (STS)
