Evaluating Resources for Disadvantaged Students.
Hafen, Susan; DeGrey, Gwen-Ellen
The stated purpose of these materials is to help educators accomplish four tasks: (1) identify "appropriate" instructional resources for disadvantaged students in vocational classes; (2) use an objective checklist to evaluate a resource's "usefulness" (a sample checklist is provided); (3) use criteria to evaluate a resource's "outstandingness" (a sample evaluation instrument is provided); and (4) review materials throughly and consistently (a set of reviewer guidelines are provided). Sections in this document include a rationale for evaluating resources, definitions (e.g., disadvantaged persons, target areas, "appropriate" resources, "usefulness", and "outstandingness"), considerations for resource evaluation, using the instructional resource checklist for usefulness, using the criterion-based evaluation form for "outstandingness", and implementing review procedures.
