Summary

Students with low language aptitude have been found to have poor powers of auditory discrimination. To date, programed language instruction has relied on audio confirmation of oral response. A study was conducted to determine the value of adding visual confirmation to the audio model. A total of 170 experimental and 140 control students in second semester college French were tested for language aptitude. The control students used a programed course in the language laboratory which provided audio confirmation only. The experimental students used a form of the course which made the correct response to stimuli available in invisible ink. In this process, called ACCESS, the written response appears after the student gives his oral answer and marks in the proper space with an impregnated pen. Students were tested for listening comprehension, writing, and reading, but only the writing test was used as a basis for comparison. The results obtained by the entire experimental class were significantly superior to those in the control group, while the dropout rate was less than half that for the control section. As predicted, low-aptitude students, those below the 40th percentile, particularly profited from simultaneously hearing and seeing the confirmation answer. (JY)
