The Eastern Iowa Community College District's (EICCD) Televised Interactive Education (TIE) Evaluation Report, 1989-1990.
Kabat, Ellen J.; Friedel, Janice N.
The purpose of this report is to provide both formative and summative results concerning the 1990 academic year operation of the Eastern Iowa Community College District's (EICCD) Televised Interactive Education (TIE) system. The TIE system is composed of a two-way microwave connection whereby two colleges and one university are able to produce and transmit a live video and audio signal from their interactive television classrooms, thus allowing instructors and students at distant sites to interact actively. Six main measures are reported: (1) system use, which identifies the major uses of the system in hours for EICCD instruction, for other local college usage, and for administrative uses; (2) class enrollments, which notes the number of students enrolled in TIE classes both on site and at remote sites; (3) average grade per site, which examines final grades for each TIE class and grade point averages; (4) student evaluation of the TIE system, completed at midterm and end of term; (5) evaluation of students who withdrew from TIE classes; and (6) instructor evaluation. Also included are recommendations arising from the study regarding the technical aspects of the system, staff development, and necessary support systems. The appendices include all evaluation forms used in the study as well as a telephone survey. (DB)
