Reaching the Handicapped Through Their Teachers: The Development and Evaluation of Two Competency-Based Training Modules. Parents as Partners in Teaching Handicapped Children. Final Report 9.33.
Stolovich, Harold D.
A generalized instructional development model was constructed which could be adapted and applied to the production of competency based nonprint self-instructional materials for special education teachers, and which produced demonstrable learning. After reviewing the literature in the field, it was ascertained that a combination of audiocassette, print, and filmstrips would provide the maximum number of attributes at the minimum cost and time requirements. Two modules were then produced (by separate researchers) in order to test the development model. The modules were tested on 90 Ss (aged 19-55 years) who were randomly divided into groups. Among conclusions of the study were that the model constructed can be applied to the production of self-instructional audiovisual training modules, and, while the modules do have an immediate effect on competency acquisition, the competencies are not maintained over time.
