Adult Basic Education Materials Evaluation Guide.
Harrison, David
This guide is intended for use by adult basic education practitioners in the screening of basic reading textbooks prior to their adoption for classroom use. The guide is in the form of a questionnaire and consists of dichotomous-choice questions arranged into three sections that relate to the product design, adult learning, and reading instruction aspects of a textbook. In the first section, the questions are grouped under the headings of format and content and instructional resources. In the second section, the questions are arranged under the headings of motivation, individual differences, principles of instruction, and relevance. In the final section, the questions are organized under the headings of word recognition, word analysis, comprehension, and assessment. A six-point Likert scale is provided for a summary rating of each element and for an overall rating of the textbook. (A discussion of the development of the instrument and of a study conducted to test its reliability is included.) (FL)
