The purpose of this evaluation research study was to compare the effectiveness of interactive video presentation versus traditional classroom instruction in teaching a skill to nursing students. Two first quarter student groups were presented range of motion materials; one group via interactive video, the other group via live instructor demonstration. A comparative evaluation design was used to compare total scores on a laboratory evaluation form and incorrect responses to subscale items pertaining to safety, medical asepsis and knowledge of the student groups. This study also compared previous knowledge levels of the material, student pretesting anxiety levels, retention of material, and student presentation preferences. The results of this study indicated no significant differences in students' skill and knowledge acquisition, anxiety levels prior to testing or the retention of presented information. Students in both groups indicated a preference for live instructor demonstrations of nursing skills over interactive video presentations.
