Summary

In order to evaluate the effectiveness of a 17-program televised course in modern mathematics for primary school teachers participating in the Peace Corps etv project, a math test and a questionnaire were administered to 1341 teachers, divided between course viewers and non-viewers. More than half of the teachers had viewed more than half of the programs. Test performance and viewing of the course were found to be clearly and positively related. Supervision of viewing sessions by Peace Corps volunteers was positively related to amount of viewing, and thus constituted one means of increasing the audience. Regular and frequent discussions with other teachers after each program resulted in significantly higher test scores compared to no such discussions. The most wanted instructional aids to accompany televised instruction were opportunities to ask questions of an expert or to participate in a conference led by an expert. This suggests that the greatest demand in televised instruction to teachers is for feedback. (oh)
