Abstract:

A study was undertaken to determine whether experience or practice in learning from films increases efficiency in learning from films. The results of the experiment showed that the two groups previously taught by one of the two film methods were consistently superior to the one group taught by the conventional teaching method no films the learning increment resulting from the four additional films was greater for the two films groups than for the conventional methods group. In one-half of twenty comparisons made between film groups and the conventional methods group, differences in favor of the film groups were statistically significant. In the remaining ten comparisons, differences favored the groups with the previous film viewing experience in all but two cases, but were not statistically significant.
