Sequential Plans and Formative Evaluation.
Epstein, Kenneth I.
Sequential plans are suggested as a basis for developing decision rules for accepting or rejecting instructional materials. The technique allows inferences to be drawn concerning the effectiveness of the instruction for the target population, from formative evaluation sample data. The procedure calls for explicit statements of the required level of instructional effectiveness and the amount of error that can be tolerated in decision making. When applied to audio-visual instruction developed for the U. S. Army, sequential plans tended to require fewer students and provided a much clearer framework for making decisions than did the traditional 80/80 rule. (Author)
