Guidelines for Developing Computer Based Resource Units. Revised.
State Univ. of New York, Buffalo. Coll. at Buffalo. Educational Research and Development Complex.
Presented for use with normal and handicapped children are guidelines for the development of computer based resource units organized into two operations: one of which is the production of software which includes the writing of instructional objectives, content, activities, materials, and measuring devices; and the other the coding of the software components in preparation for computer retrieval. One of the five aspects of writing instructional objectives discussed is criteria such as that objectives should be behavioral and student oriented. Selectivity is seen to be the critical consideration in writing content items. Also given are guidelines for specifying materials and formulating activities. It is suggested that measuring devices be imaginative, varied, and possessed of adequate achievement criteria. Each component (objective, content, activity, material, or measuring device) is identified by number and coded to both objectives and variables. Fourteen variable categories such as student interests and physical handicaps are considered in terms of coding guidelines. Examples of coding sheets and a listing of appropriate categories for coding variables are given as well as 248 instructional variables listed under the 14 major categories. See also EC 051 239 through EC 051 241 for related documents. (DB)
