Intensive Evaluation of Satellite TV Impact on Four Alaskan Villages. Supplement to Basic ESCD Evaluation Design.
Practical Concepts, Inc., Washington, DC.
A supplement to the final report, "Design for an Analysis and Assessment of the Education Satellite Communications Demonstration (ESCD)," this document is both: (1) a separable, sociologically oriented evaluation of the ESCD impact on Alaskan native villages; and (2) a direct extension of the work described in sections 4 and 5 in the Practical Concepts Incorporated (PCI) final report. (Those sections describe "Measurement of Satellite TV on the Way Educational Institutions and Technology are Perceived," and "Measurement of the Impact of Satellite TV on Educational Institutions and Behavior Toward Them," respectively.) Primary features of PCI's proposed "Intensive Evaluation of Satellite TV Impact on Four Alaskan Villages" are: (1) the use of knowledgeable, sensitive social scientists now working in Alaska to help PCI focus on questions and issues peculiar to satellite TV in Alaska, and to augment the data collection and analysis described in the PCI final report; and (2) the use of trained native Alaskans to help PCI focus on questions and issues peculiar to satellite TV in Alaska, and to collect data that would otherwise be impossible to obtain.
