Abstract : This study investigates the feasibility of replacing formal lecture and self study with instructional television as the primary method of inservice training for naval aviation squadrons. Two approaches were taken. First an experiment was performed to determine the relative efficiency and effectiveness of the three methods of instruction. Then, using the efficiency data from the experiment, a cost analysis was done to compare the relative costs of instruction via formal lecture and instructional television. Based upon the established criteria for efficiency and effectiveness and the statistical data from the experiment, it was concluded that instructional television is both more efficient and effective than either formal lecture or self study. The cost analysis also demonstrated that instructional television is a more cost effective method with repeated uses. (Author)
