Instructional Programming: Development and Validation of Instructional Modules for Graphic Production Programs. A Research and Development Report.
Morrisohn, John P.
The purpose of the study was to develop and validate individualized instructional modules for graphic production at the community college level. Seven components of the research and development process were product selection, literature review, planning, development of the preliminary form of the product, preliminary field test and product revision, main field test and product revision, and operational field test and product revision. Three modules were developed covering the areas of design, paste up, and process camera. Each contained a flow chart of the module structure, a rationale, performance objectives, learning activities, a posttest, and a summation. The modules were field tested and revised by administering a pretest to the students and calculating the percentage of students attaining a score of 80% or better on a posttest for each unit. The effectiveness of the design was significant since well over 90% of the students scored 80% or higher on the posttest, and over 80% of the participants in the operational field test evaluated the modules as being very appropriate. (Module flow charts, a module evaluation form, and the three instructional modules are appended to this report.) (BL)
