Factors Affecting Instructional Television Utilization in Alabama.
Turner, Philip M.; Simpson, William
A study was conducted of the factors affecting the utilization of educational television in elementary and secondary schools in the 127 school districts in the state of Alabama. Based upon the results of previous studies, five variables were investigated: (1) percentage of K-12 students in the total student population, (2) ratio of students to videotape recorders, (3) ratio of students to television receivers, (4) ratio of students to color television receivers, and (5) student population within individual districts. A questionnaire was used to gather information pertaining to the five variables, as well as to the percentage of students utilizing instructional television. The effects of each of the variables studied were measured by means of stepwise multiple regression. Scheduling was found to be the most important variable affecting the use of educational television in instruction. Further study using a wider range of variables, specifically curricula variables, was recommended. A review of the literature on the use of educational television in instruction, a 14-item bibliography, and two tables accompany the report. (Author/JL)
