AN EXPERIMENTAL STUDY ON THE TEACHING METHODS FOR PROSPECTIVE FIREMEN
This study is an experimental design with two types of teaching methods for prospective firefighters, which explores and assesses the teaching effectiveness with a self-constructed test that drew on practices of current firefighters. The study concludes: lecture with group discussion method is better than direct teaching method, and the self-constructed test is a sound instrument in terms of its reliability and validity for assessing teaching effectiveness.
