Abstract

The purpose of this study was to compare the effectiveness of multimedia technology teaching with traditional teaching as measured by test scores from the City of Beaumont Public Health Department Food Managers' Certification Program. The researcher developed a PowerPoint presentation based on the curriculum provided by the Beaumont Public Health Department. The sample consisted of 50 participants. The traditional method (TM) was used with 24 subjects while the PowerPoint method (PM) was employed with 26 students. There were no significant differences in test scores based on teaching method. Fifty-one percent of the students in the PM class rated the curriculum as very organized compared to 39% of the participants in the TM class. Forty-two percent of the PM participants rated the class as excellent whereas only 29% of the TM participants gave this response. The study served as a framework for future classes, providing day by day outlines of the curriculum. It also addressed the development of new approaches to teaching suitable for students who may find that diverse learning processes lend to higher levels of mastery of information.
