Abstract:

The current practice in most schools of selecting instructional films on the basis of their availability and compatability with particular curricula does not allow the evaluation of the film's effectiveness in achieving its ultimate goal, namely, significant learning in the pupil. This study explores a method of evaluating a particular film and of producing a film with greater ability to teach. The verbal message of the film is broken into paragraphs concerned with common topics. Questions testing the information contained in each paragraph are administered to two groups, one which has heard only the sound track of the film and one which has seen the entire film. The improvement in the ability of the students to answer questions after seeing the complete audiovisual presentation, which is significant, provides a test for the effectiveness of each part of the instructional film. However, the relationship between quiz item, answer alternative, and the instructional film, reveals itself to be unexpectedly complex. (BB)
