Design for Field Testing of Mountain-Plains Curriculum.
England, Robert G.; Pollack, Robert M.
The field test design information packet was devised for use by persons representing institutions using the Mountain-Plains curriculum products. The primary purpose of field testing the curriculum is to get third party profession and student reaction to what has proved to be successful with students and instructors at Mountain-Plains. The importance of using the materials in the format especially designed for them is emphasized. Part 1 briefly discusses the curriculum field test information packet. Part 2--design and instruments--concentrates on the various evaluation instruments used in the monitoring of materials. Part 3 explains in detail the orientation session for instructors who will be using the Mountain-Plains curriculum packages in an actual teaching situation without supervision. Information sheets are provided for (1) research procedures, (2) Independent Student Progress Rationale, (3) ABC's of the testing program, (4) how to use SPR's (Student Progress Reports), and (5) procedures for LAP/LEG (Learning Activity Package/Learning Experience Guide) test use and disposition. Part 4 concludes the document with a copy of the contractual agreement between Mountain-Plains and the contracting agency using the Mountain-Plains products. (BP)
