A Comparison of the Amount of Art Knowledge and Information Acquired by College Students through Site Visits and General Lecture.
Perez, Rafael A.
The purpose of this study was to compare the knowledge about art acquired by students who went on site visits with that of students who experienced only the lecture method of teaching. A study was conducted at Boricua College (New York) with two groups of 25 students each, one participating as a control and one as an experimental group. The control group was exposed to field analysis through the lecture method of teaching; the experimental group was exposed to field analysis through visits to museums for a period of 15 weeks. Both groups were administered the Eisner Art Information Inventory at the end of the fall 1988 cycle. The experimental group did not reflect a significant difference in relation to the knowledge acquired through site visits over the control group. Test data are given in four tables and figures, and a bibliography contains 38 items. The appendices contain listings of perceptual competencies and psychomotor domain, a students' learning contract, and the Eisner Art Information Inventory. (Author/PPB)
