Abstract:

The study was undertaken to determine whether and to what extent instructional films can carry the entire teaching burden, in a course involving the teaching of a body of factual information. The overall results suggest that a body of factual information such as high school general science, may be taught by films alone, almost as effectively as by a teacher using conventional classroom methods except films, and by films introduced and supplemented by brief study guides perhaps a little more effectively than by conventional non-film teaching methods.
