The Development of a Weighted Checklist Prototype for Instructional Materials Selection for Special Education Students. [Final Report].
Ventura, Mary F.
The study was designed to develop a weighted checklist for use in selecting instructional materials for handicapped students. Selection criteria identified by 24 authors were reviewed and consolidated into a 103-item field test survey which was then adapted according to suggestions of a 15-member review panel. A survey was sent to 1,659 individuals responsible for material selection for special education students. Ss' responses were summarized according to mean importance rating for each item, and results were used to create a weighted materials check list. Demographic information solicited from respondents was used to develop a data base that included descriptions of the sample type and age of the students for whom the materials were selected, respondents' positions, sources used to obtain information about instructional materials, settings in which materials were used, and employment of check lists to select materials.
