"On the Level". Formative Evaluation: Changing Family Relationships. Research Report 73.
Agency for Instructional Television, Bloomington, IN.
A formative evaluation was conducted of the instructional television program "Daddy's Girl" from "On the Level," a series of 12 lessons designed to aid secondary school students in dealing with personal and social growth. Designed to teach that adolescents usually have to work out new relationships with their parents and that it may be difficult for parents to respond to adolescents' changing needs and vice versa, the program encourages viewers to develop new patterns of interactions with parents. A total of 229 students in 8 classes in California and Canada viewed the programs. Data collection measures included a teacher-led, post-viewing discussion narrative, discussion profile, evaluator-led discussion narrative and teacher/program guide questionnaire, observation of the students during viewing, and use of the Program Evaluation Analysis Computer (PEAC), which recorded students' interest level in the program during viewing. Students were highly attentive throughout most of the program, even though the opening and the closing scenes received the lowest ratings for attention and interest level. Appendices include the student questionnaire, PEAC Interest Profile graph, and the teacher questionnaire and its results. (LMM)
