System Modification and Evaluation in Instructional Programming: The Final Phases of the Program Construction Process.
In this final volume of a three-volume series on the construction of self-instructional systems, the focus is on various aspects of post-construction control and improvement. As the first step in this phase, the process of polishing the material by checking for readability, integration, retention, and motivation is described and some of the aids to be used in this checking phase are suggested. A description of empirical procedures is included to emphasize the need for systematic revision techniques. Some examples are presented of relevant variables and systematic mapping devices which aid in evaluation. Combinations of revision criteria are reviewed and a few special measures to reduce student boredom are suggested. The final task in program construction, compiling a program manual, is detailed with a catalog of the categories of information common to any program manual. A check list is provided to facilitate the assessment and comparison of existing programs. A glossary defines terms used in programed instruction and educational technology.
