The Contribution of an Internal Review Panel to the Development of Educational Programming. Satellite Technology Demonstration, Technical Report No. 0213.
Connolly, A. J.; Anderson, Frank
The goal of the Satellite Technology Demonstration (STD) is to create several types of educational television programs for a varied audience beamed by a communication satellite. The first program produced--"Time Out!"-- was a career exploration series written for junior high students. A "formative" semester permitted the series to be shown over 16 weeks to one audience and then revised by an internal review panel. STD made the following recommendations: (1) In cases of limited resources and a diverse audience, evaluation by a review panel, supplemented with audience data, is more satisfactory than the use of selected audience members or consultants; (2) panel should be composed of 5-6 members possessing a variety of knowledge and responsibilities and should include those responsible for implementing the results; (3) evaluation should be initiated simultaneously with video-production development; (4) members should make independent ratings, but should share findings in group dialog; (5) whenever possible, the primary source of similar evaluations should be done by the original audience with a panel used as a supplementary source.
