Evaluation of Instructional Materials - An Approach; A Position Paper.
Singh, Surendra P.; Barnard, James
The role of the instructional materials center in evaluating materials is asserted and evaluation is defined as a media of compiling and analyzing information. Four evaluative methods are explained: field testing and comparing results; assessing rationale; measuring attitudinal and motivational variables; and describing the material and its use. A model for evaluation is presented; its six phases include decision making, identification and prescription, gathering information on predominant variables, posttests and compiling information, analysis (or evaluation) of information, and dissemination. Samples of models used in the field are appended. (JD)
