Abstract:

Two parallel self-instructional packages were developed for teaching soldering rework on printed circuit boards. One package consisted of 12 five-minute sound films. The other consisted of a 168-page spiral bound book. The effectiveness of the self-instructional packages was compared with that of a parallel instuctor-taught course. Subjects for the comparison experiment consisted of 60 students in Basic Electricity and Electronics. Both self-instructional packages--film and book--were found to be effective media for learning soldering skills. No significant difference was found in the soldering skill gains of film-, book-, and instructor-taught students. The soldering book, though, would have the advantage of being simpler and less expensive to reproduce and to administer. Author
