Pilot Guidelines for Improving Instructional Materials Through the Process of Learner Verification and Revision.
Educational Products Information Exchange Inst., Stony Brook, NY.
Learner Verification and Revision (LVR) Process of Instructional Materials is an ongoing effort for the improvement of instructional materials based on systematic feedback from learners who have used the materials. This evaluation gives publishers a method of identifying instructional strengths and weaknesses of a product and provides an opportunity to revise that product. LVR identifies trouble spots or the absence of them, since the only people to engage in the selection are those involved in the product. Instructional materials require actual use in the classroom to determine their effectiveness. Reporting and assessing LVR activities are carried out according to a flexible format. The format includes (a) descriptive information on the product, (b) instructional design, (c) intended learner outcomes to be investigated, (d) conditions of use of product, (e) techniques for gathering feedback, (f) description of learners used in LVR process, (g) analysis of findings, (h) specific improvements made, (i) background and future of product. Three appendixes and a review of Task Force reactions are included. (DS)
