Development of Course Content and Instructional Materials/Aids for the Training of Educational Research, Development, Diffusion, and Evaluation Personnel. Supplementary Final Report.
Gropper, George L.
This report evaluates a program which trained participants in the instructional design process and indicates how effective it was for training instructional design personnel. The program was administered to three separate groups on separate occasions (N=8, N=6, N=3). The program, being self-instructional, allowed students to work at their own pace, but they did participate in group discussions. The following data were gathered: time to complete reading and exercise assignments; errors on workbook exercises (constituting criterion-like tasks); and student comments. Analysis of this data revealed that the program worked well. Student comments were generally favorable. The only revisions in the program were made on the instructions to students on how to use the program. Recommendations are made for further evaluation of the revised program. The appendixes include information on workbook error rates; results of final exercises; and participants' comments on overall evaluation, other models, the handbook, and diagramming. Twelve tables of data are presented. (Author/BRB)
