C-BE Evaluation Instruments: A Descriptive Report.
Reifle, Sheila; Edwards, Agnes
The instruments used in the evaluation of Project C-BE (computer-based instruction) are presented and described in this report. A brief description of each instrument, its purpose, developmental history, references and reliability studies are provided. These instruments were administered to Project C-BE classes in an attempt to identify psychological variables which could be used to predict performance in various computer-based instruction settings. These variables included personal tendencies revealed by the Bass Orientation Inventory (ORI) and preferences in college indicated by the Orientation Toward College Inventory (OTC). Preferences in learning and activity settings were assessed with the Learning Style Inventory (LSI). Familiarity with computer technology and nomenclature was tested with the Computer Sophistication Questionnaire (CSQ). Student attitudes toward the course and toward computer based instruction were assessed with pretest and posttest questionnaires so that changes in attitudes due to exposure to computer-based education could also be measured.
