Summary

Standord University's Institute for Communication Research was asked in 1968 to conduct an evaluation of a new instructional television (ITV) system in El Salvador: to study the effects of ITV on El Salvador's school system; to derive conclusions from the experience that might help guide other nations interested in applying instructional technology; and to contribute through research to the development of the ITV system. The first chapter identifies the context of the evaluations and traces the origins of El Salvador's ITV system. The second chapter presents the results of four years of research on learning, while the third chapter presents a picture of student attitudes across the four years of research. Students' educational and occupational aspirations are summarized in the fourth chapter, and background information of the students, their schools, and their communities is presented in the fifth chapter. The next few chapters report studies of teacher attitudes and behavior, studies of the efficiency and cost of the new system, and an administrative history of ITV. A final chapter reviews El Salvador's ITV system and concludes with a brief discussion of some alternative strategies for the use of instructional technology to expand educational opportunity.
