A Guide for Selecting Bilingual Bicultural Resource Materials: The Analytic Instrument. [Volume III].
This is the third of three volumes reporting a project to develop an instrument to evaluate instructional materials used in bilingual education, community language education, and bicultural education programs in Australian schools. The project had three purposes: (1) to examine the research literature on the development of models and instruments to evaluate immigrant education resource materials; (2) to develop an instrument based on appropriate criteria and standards; and (3) to utilize the developed evaluation instrument for the analysis of Dutch bilingual and bicultural educational materials available to Australian schools. This volume contains the four evaluation instruments developed during this project: (1) Criteria for the Evaluation of Resource Materials-Evaluator's Form; (2) Criteria for the Evaluation of Resource Materials, Background Characteristics in General Contexts-Evaluator's Form; (3) Criteria for the Evaluation of Resource Materials, Decision-Making in a Specific Context-User's Form; and (4) Criteria for the Evaluation of Resource Materials-Evaluator's Form for Annotations. The criteria and standards for these instruments were developed primarily from the following instruments: the Sussex Scheme (Eraut, 1975); EPIE form A (Educational Products Information Exchange Institute); the Ethnic Studies Materials Analysis System and the Curriculum Materials Analysis System (Social Science Education Consortium).
