Programmed Instruction Guide. Second Edition.
Northeastern Univ., Boston, MA. Instructional Technology Information Center.
This guide to programed learning materials provides teachers and industrial training personnel with information capable of immediate update by means of electronic data processing. Published twice each year, the Guide consists of four parts: appendices (methods of reporting the effectiveness of programed materials, bibliographies, periodicals, producers, and devices); an index used to enter the data bank by subject matter; the data bank itself; and a supply of program record sheets. The data bank includes the following information about each program: title, author, existence of a teacher's manual, the type of tests included with the program, teaching device (equipment), subject, program source, assessment data, program style, hours required for completion, level, cost, availability, and publication date. The Guide is designed not only to list programs, but also to indicate their quality and relevance to given instructional requirements so that the user can make a better first-level evaluation. (TI)
