The Evaluation Design: Summer Courses, 1974. Technical Report Number Four.
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 communication satellites. During the summer of 1974 nearly 600 teachers at 15 sites received graduate education courses. The evaluation of those courses is described in this document. Included in the evaluation strategies used are: (1) pre-post course testing of the cognitive and affective behaviors of participants; (2) achievement testing after each unit of instruction; (3) user rating of the different presentation modes; (4) descriptive documentation of equipment, facilities, personnel, and participants; and (5) a field study of the additive impact of three activities in the course learning sequence. The implementation and data analysis procedures for the evaluation are also described. (Author/DGC)
