The Influence of Supplementary Multimedia Instruction on Students' Knowledge of Normal Swallowing: An Authentic Investigation Over Time.
Scholten, Ingrid
This paper describes the effect of supplementary multimedia instruction on the pattern of growth of student learning of normal swallowing. On four occasions, up to 190 speech pathology students from four Australian universities completed a free-response task designed to assess students' learning of core information. Scripts were scored using a valid and reliable key. Hierarchical linear modeling was used to measure change in students' understanding over time. Within-student predictor variables included time, whether or not the student had used specific instructional technology, and details of clinical practica; between-student variables included site, grade point average, age, and gender. Students did improve following instruction and multimedia enhanced performance, with increased duration of use resulting in higher scores. Other influential variables were also determined, including site, gender, and aptitude. The discussion of the findings addresses the implications for teaching. (Contains 33 references.) (Author/MES)
