Information Wants of Seven Groups of Users Considering the Adoption or Adaptation of Instructional Systems. Interim Report.
Twelker, Paul A.; And Others
In this phase of the Technological Applications Project (TAP) a study was conducted which sought to determine the information wants of seven groups of individuals who were in a position of decision-making with respect to the adoption of instructional systems (teachers, library specialists, media specialists, curriculum coordinators and subject matter specialists, building administrators, school system administrators, developers). Data were collected about the types of information of highest priority to the majority of the user groups and the differences between user groups with respect to information wants. It was determined that the majority of users did not possess the same information wants. However, the types of information wants that were common to the majority of the groups revolved around three questions: 1) what does the system teach?, 2) how does the system perform with respect to carrying out its objectives?, and 3) how is the system used?
