The Learning Effectiveness of Instructional Technologies: Results from Pilot Studies.
Passerini, Katia; Granger, Mary J.
This paper responds to calls for further research on learning effectiveness of instructional technologies by comparing 'learning' and 'attitudes' across three instructional environments (multimedia, textbook and in-class instruction), and proposing a quasi-experimental research design approach. The paper reports the results of pilot studies conducted with the aim of refining the research framework, assessing the experimental conditions, and obtaining preliminary results. This research framework and the pilot studies are described. The subjects of the study were graduate and undergraduate students enrolled in business administration degree programs at a major East-coast University. Six figures include: quasi-experimental model for testing the comparative effectiveness of instructional technologies; prior work experience; age of the learners; satisfaction survey data, undergraduate pilot study, fall 1999; prior knowledge of the topic: self-reported prior knowledge and pre-test-posttest differences; appeal response, undergraduate pilot study, fall 1999.
