Abstract:

This report contains an annotation of published reports dealing with the use of audio-visual media for proficiency testing. Reports included discuss investigation of audio-visual administrations of standardized printed tests as well as motion picture filmed tests assessing job knowledge and skill. Reports dealing with the use of audio-visual media in teaching were not included, though references to several bibliographies dealing with the use of motion pictures in education are listed. The majority of the investigations of motion picture filmed tests were done between 1945 and 1958. Most of the more recent research is limited to the audio-visual display of printed tests during test administration. Although the published results of the reviewed reports vary from extremely positive to quite negative, the general finding of this review stresses the paucity of thorough investigations using the audio-visual medium in proficiency testing.
