A Methodology for Evaluating a Systems Approach to Instructional Technology.
Felker, Daniel B.; Shettel, Harris H.
This study was designed to develop a methodology for evaluating the application of Instructional Technology (IT), conceived of in terms of a systems approach. An idealized model of IT was prepared based on a literature review of current models. The model was matched against basic nursing education programs purporting to use IT. A rating technique was used to measure the "goodness of fit." Strengths and weaknesses of each program are identified as well as general trends in IT use. Six of the most effective programs were selected for validating the methodology. Data supporting the approach is presented. (Author)
