Formative Evaluation Study for AESP Diagnostic and Prescriptive Reading Course. Technical Report Number Three.
Bramble, William J., Ed.; Ausness, Claudine, Ed.
The Appalachian Education Satellite Project (AESP) was conceptualized in 1973 (1) to develop courses in reading and career-education instruction for teachers in the Appalachian region, and (2) to determine the feasibility of conducting such courses over a large geographical area via communications satellites. This report describes the formative evaluation design used for one course, the diagnostic and prescriptive reading instruction course for K-3 teachers. Twelve different instruments were used to evaluate the televised lecture tape, audio review tape, laboratory exercises, and scripts for the course module. Forty graduate and undergraduate students from reading classes at the University of Kentucky College of Education provided for formative evaluation data for the project. Examples of the instruments together with the specific procedures for their use are included. (DGC)
