Media Adjunct Programming MAP techniques for presenting individualized, self-paced instruction were compared to traditional instructor-classroom TIC techniques in an undergraduate pilot weather course. The MAP group completed the course in significantly less time than the TIC group, representing a 29 time savings. In addition, MAP students performed equally as well on the post-test and retention test, had significantly lower state anxiety scores while learning the materials and reported significantly higher attitude scores toward the instructional method than TIC students. Predictions on the inverse relationship between state curiosity and state anxiety were partially supported, in that significant interactions were found between treatment conditons and flight groups. Possible factors contributing to flight group differences were discussed. Author
