The Development and Implementation of a Model for Comparing Instructional Alternatives.
Gallup, David A.
In light of current research and evaluation criteria, the Gallup Evaluation Model (GEM I and GEM II) was developed and tested at Pennsylvania State University to assess effectiveness and efficiency of instructional developments. Alternative ways of teaching German I were evaluated according to five variables: amount of pupil time, course costs, number of students, student achievement and attitude. A cost-effectiveness analysis compared student achievement and attitude scores to costs of each alternative instructional method. The Pennsylvania study concluded that the model is practical, readily applicable, and workable for deciding which program to eliminate or revise. It is also useful in predicting changes in effectiveness during course recycling and when reworking certain specific variables. (SK)
