The Effect of Mode of Instruction on Learning in a Video Tape Speed Reading System.
Bannerman, James W.
The purpose of this study was to either confirm or refute the claim of the producer of the Time-Life Video Tape Speed Reading system that improved speed would be independent of the time interval between the eight individual taped lessons. The English department at the Southern Technical Institute (Georgia) offered a speed reading course in three different modes with different intervals between lessons. Data were gathered on precourse and postcourse reading speed. The analysis of variance indicated no statistical justification for rejecting the null hypothesis, and the producer's claim was substantiated. (MKM)
