Effect of Teacher Clarity on Student Achievement.
Land, M. L.; Denham, Alice
The results of the experimental effect of low-inference teacher clarity variables on achievement and on retention were determined by means of a randomized control group, posttest only, basic design. Members of an introductory education class viewed videotapes of lessons containing either high or low teacher clarity variables. Subjects who took a 30-item criterion test immediately after the viewing were compared to subjects who took a "delayed achievement" criterion test one week after viewing the tapes. Significant differences resulted for the main clarity effect and for the main effect of time-of-achievement. The interaction effect between clarity and time-of-achievement was not significant, i.e., there was no significant differential effect of level of teacher clarity on student retention. (Author/LH)
