Analysis and Evaluation of Present and Future Multi-Media Needs in Higher Education. Final Report.
Faegre, Christopher L.; And Others
The strategy used to construct the Field Instrument for Evaluation of Learning Devices (FIELD) is described. FIELD is a data collection instrument which can produce useful information concerning the cost, utilization, pattern, and overall effectiveness of presently operating or proposed multi-media systems in higher education. Part I is an expository presentation based on 4 major objectives: establishing a working definition of a multi-media system; identifying basic planning steps that may lead to the use of multi-media to solve specific instructional situations at individual institutions; determining what general types of teaching activities can be handled best by particular systems; and determining objective criteria to evaluate the usefulness of multi-media systems in higher education. Part II is a detailed documentation of activities conducted in the Washington Office of American Institutes for Research, and in 4 universities where multi-media systems were evaluated. Also included are the findings of the FIELD tryout and specifications for an improved evaluation device, NEW FIELD, which would permit examination of a smaller number of variables than FIELD. There are 16 charts; 2 appendices contain the questionnaires developed and used during the study. (WM)
