Acquisition of Information to be Used in Programming for Pesticides Applicator Certification Training. Final Report.
Kansas State Univ., Manhattan. Extension Service.
Five methods were evaluated for training Kansas agricultural producers for certification as Private Pesticide Applicators. The study involved 471 participants throughout the state. Comparison of pre- and post-test scores showed that teaching by video cassette caused the most improvement, followed by the traditional method using a team of specialists, a self-study programmed instructional packet, a Telenet instructional program, and one-day educational meetings conducted by county extension agents. However, taking into account the cost of each method and the value of alerting large numbers, the Telenet method is recommended. (BB)
