dc.description.abstractThe primary objective of this study was to evaluate the effectiveness of selected single concept filmstrips as instructional supplements for photo-offset lithography units in graphic arts curriculums. A secondary purpose was to identify other photo-offset lithography units necessitating similar educational filmstrip development. A survey and an experimental approach were the two research methods employed to ascertain the required information. The experimental study was conducted in two junior colleges and two senior colleges in Texas with similar programs of graphic arts. Each cooperating institution provided at least two classes for a control and an experimental group. Two units and methods of instruction were applied to the 146 students completing the experiment. The experiment was devised to examine the initial learning and overall retention of students receiving the halftone and color presentations. A multiple-choice achievement instrument for each unit served as a pretest, posttest, and test of retention. Student mean gain as measured by the achievement test was the criterion used to determine the effectiveness of the filmstrips. An analysis of variance technique provided the statistical inferences derived from the experimental research. Test scores that resulted from initial learning and retention were analyzed. Comparison of the overall mean gains indicated that the experimental method for both units was higher on every reported score except the initial learning results on the color unit..en
