Personnel from WKNO-TV and the Bureau of Educational Research and Services of the College of Education of Memphis State University conducted a study of instructional television (ITV) during the spring of 1981. The study was designed to survey the usage and effectiveness of the 1980-81 in-school programing and future needs of the instructional television services provided by the Memphis Community Television Foundation and broadcast through WKNO-TV, Memphis, and the facilities of WLJT-TV, Lexington, Tennessee. Three questionnaires were used to collect data: (1) an administrator's form, (2) a faculty coordinator's form, and (3) an individual teacher's form. The appropriate forms were sent to superintendents, supervisors/consultants, principals, teachers, ITV faculty coordinators, and other school system administrators in the Memphis City Schools, the Shelby County Schools, West Tennessee schools, private schools, and out-of-state schools. Over 51 percent of the 8,489 persons surveyed completed and returned the forms. The major survey findings reported include ITV utilization by grade level, ITV utilization by type of class, ten most used ITV series, teacher guide use, students' favorite ITV series, conditions affecting utilization, and administrative support.
