High School Student - High School Parent: Are There Differences in the Evaluation of an Educational Interactive Video Program?
Witta, E. Lea
The purpose of this study was to determine if there were differences in evaluation of an educational interactive video program between high school students and their parents over a 4-year time span. High school students participating in the interactive video program were surveyed during 5 semesters. Survey instruments were also sent to parents via the student. There were 1,024 student respondents and 481 parent respondents. Constructs for each group were determined using exploratory factor analysis. The mean vectors of similar constructs for each status group were contrasted using multivariate analysis of variance (MANCOVA) with semester and site as additional factors. In addition, similar questions for each status group that would not be included in a construct were also contrasted by MANOVA. Because heterogeneity of covariance matrices was not achieved in the initial sample, a stratified random sample of 150 was selected from each site and status group and the analysis repeated. Results indicate there are no differences in evaluation of the interactive video program between parents and students. These results are discussed. (Contains 4 tables and 19 references.) (Author/SLD)
