THE EFFECTIVENESS OF COMPENSATION STRATEGIES FOR DEVELOPING SOME MEDIA TRANSLATION SKILLS FOR EDUCATIONAL MEDIA STUDENTS AT THE FACULTY OF SPECIFIC EDUCATION
This study aims at investigating utilizing compensation strategies for developing some media translation skills among freshmen at the Faculty of Specific Education. The study adopted the quasi-experimental design. The 40 participants of the study were freshmen enrolled in the Faculty of Specific Education, Zagazig University in the academic year 2019/2020. They were randomly divided into two groups: a treatment group and a non- treatment group, with 20 participants in each. Treatment group students were taught using compensation strategies, whereas the non-treatment group received a regular instruction. A media translation test was designed to be the instrument of the study. The test was pre- and post- administered to both groups. It was found that the treatment group’s results outperformed that of the non-treatment group. Results of the study indicated that compensation strategies have a positive effect on improving some media translation skills.
