Abstract

The purpose of this study was to determine if any significant difference existed between the achievement of students through instruction by: the conventional teaching method plus film, and the conventional teaching method plus film with discussion on the film. -- The study involved two grade seven classes within the St. Barbe South Integrated School Board. -- Campbell and Stanley's "Pretest - Posttest Control Group" design was utilized in this study (Campbell and Stanley, 1970). -- For the results of the study, two separate measures are available: -- 1. scores on the posttest for achievement, and -- 2. gain scores (posttest scores minus pretest scores) used to determine if any significant difference existed between high achievers and low achievers within the control group and the experimental group. -- The T test (independent means) was used to determine if the mean scores were significantly different. -- The results of the study indicated that a significant difference existed between the achievement of students using the conventional teaching method plus film and students using the conventional teaching method plus film with discussion on the film. The group of students using the conventional teaching plus film with discussion on the film scored significantly higher. -- It was also found that there was no significant difference between the achievement of high achievers and low achievers in the group using the conventional teaching method plus film only. There was a significant difference between the achievement of high achievers and low achievers in the group using the conventional teaching method plus film with discussion on the film. The high achievers scored significantly higher.
