Title: MEDIA SELECTION COMPETENCIES OF OHIO SECONDARY SCHOOL TEACHERS

Abstract: The purpose of this study was to determine if there is a relationship between teacher perception of media selection competency scores and knowledge of media selection competency scores and formal audiovisual training.

The hypotheses were: (1) There will be a statistically significant difference in perception of media selection competency scores as a function of formal audiovisual training. (2) There will be a statistically significant difference in knowledge of media selection competency scores as a function of formal audiovisual training. (3) There will be a significant positive linear correlation between perception of media selection competency scores and knowledge of media selection competency scores.

Data were collected from a total of 262 Ohio teachers who represented respondents from randomly selected Ohio secondary schools. The instrumentation consisted of a three-part questionnaire. Part I queried teachers on formal audiovisual training; part II and part III measured perception and knowledge of media selection competencies respectively.

One-way anlyses of variance were used to test the first two hypotheses. The third hypothesis was tested using a Pearson correlation. The probability level for all tests of significance was set at .05.

Conclusions were: (1) Teachers with formal audiovisual training have statistically higher perception of media selection competency scores and knowledge of media selection competency scores than those teachers without formal audiovisual training. (2) There is a positive linear relationship between perception of media selection competency scores and knowledge of media selection competency scores.

In conclusion it is recommended that teachers receive formal audiovisual coursework and in-service training in media selection competencies.
