Concepts in Static Electricity. Courseware Evaluation for Vocational and Technical Education.
Sommer, Sandra; And Others
This courseware evaluation rates the Concepts in Static Electricity program developed by Micro Learningware. (The program--not contained in this document--is a four-disk set covering the electroscope, charging by induction, grounding, and charging by conduction.) Part A describes the program in terms of subject area and hardware requirements (Apple II, color monitor), indicates its suitability for use as a tutorial in grades 7-12, and gives a time estimate (20-30 minutes per section). Availability information includes contact address and backup policy. Part B contains the evaluation criteria in eight categories; reviewer ratings appear as yes, somewhat, no, and not applicable, with explanatory comments. Part C summarizes the evaluation. The program received yes ratings for subject matter, technical presentation, and documentation; and somewhat ratings for student and program interaction and student evaluation. Reviewers found the program too slow, narrow in scope, and outdated, although it may be used as a tutorial if a student misses a lesson. (SK)
