Assessing the Teaching Effectiveness of an Audio-Visual Program Relating to the Intensive Office Program in Business Education.
Uthe, Elaine F.
The effectiveness of a teacher-made slide-tape presentation for training experienced business teachers to teach the Intensive Office Program (IOP)--a high school course incorporating office practice, office machines, advanced typewriting and shorthand--was field tested. Three groups were involved: undergraduate non-business education students, undergraduate business education students, and graduate business education teachers enrolled in the 1976 summer course to become IOP teachers. All were given a 43-item true-false quiz and written guidelines for IOP, before and after viewing the presentation. Pretest-post test differences were significant for all three groups. Item analysis was made to identify test items needing revision. Those 15 concepts answered incorrectly by at least 20% on the post test were reviewed for slide and script clarity, as well as test item content. In conclusion, the present slide tape was found to be effective, but certain areas needed improvement. Additional development is recommended. (CP)
