Abstract
"Introduction: B.F. Skinner (1958) popularized the Skinner's approach of linear programmed learning to improve teaching methods.The purpose of this study was to de-termine the effectiveness of skin-nerís programmed learning meth-od over conventional routing teaching method among third MBBS students of AMC MET Medi-cal College, Ahmedabad.
Methods: Third M.B.B.S students of AMC MET Medical College, Ah-medabad were divided into group A(roll no.1-49) & group B (roll no.50-98). Group A was taught top-ics of breast &esophagus by skin-nerís method while group B was taught same topics by routine teaching method by same profes-sor of surgery department. Both the groups were assessed by asking questions of six marks of each dur-ing 8th& 9th semester examination. Data was complied into excel sheet and analyzed with appropriate sta-tistical test at significance of 0.05.
Result: Out of 98 students, 50 were male & 48 were females. Equal numbers of students were present in both groups during the sched-uled lectures. Difference of sex dis-tribution, attending lecturers & scoring in examination among both the groups was statistically not significant (P>0.05). Statistical-ly significant positive correlation was found between attending top-ics taught by skinnerís method with the result obtained in exami-nations (P=0.000).
Conclusion: Skinnerís pro-grammed learning method was positively correlated with the scor-ing of the students. This method develops creativity, interest among students and this in turn will be helpful in the students learning and overall improvement of stu-dents and institute.
