The Evaluation and Research of Curriculum Materials.
Eisner, Elliot W.
The production and sale of instructional materials are now big business in this country. Hence it is desirable, and probably necessary, to establish standards for such materials. Research in the area of curriculum materials is basically virgin territory. The evaluation of different types of curriculum materials will require the application of different types of criteria. Some suggestions regarding the distinctions between types of materials are made. With respect to curriculum materials which aim at the attainment of specific objectives, the educational significance of content, flexibility, durability, incidence of use by both teachers and students, ease of use, and educational effect are proposed as possible assessment criteria.
