Television Captioning, Interference, and A Hearing Audience: A Media Management Question.
Ruggiero, Richard M.
Intended to assist media managers in making appropriate decisions and planning allocations of resources for an instructional program, this study was designed to determine if captions displayed on instructional video programs interfere with learning in hearing audiences. Subjects were 80 university students enrolled in five undergraduate general education classes, who were randomly assigned to one of two groups of 40 subjects, all of whom were drawn from a hearing population. The materials used included a 30-minute instructional videotape, a 35-item test on content, a 12-item self-report questionnaire which was used to obtain demographic data on the subjects, and a 16-item Likert-scaled postquestionnaire which assessed the attitudes of the students toward captions and viewing captioned materials in an instructional setting. Results indicated no significant differences in the scores on the test of knowledge between subjects who viewed the video with captions displayed and the group who viewed the identical video presentation without captions. Tables comparing survey results are included and 16 references are listed. (DJR)
