A Survey and Analysis of Educational Review Activities (A Preliminary Review). Product 3.
Despite the fact that reviews of educational products for selection purposes usually have to be based on evidence less conclusive than formal evaluations, these reviews must be approached as thoughtfully and as rationally as possible. More fruitful results will come from review procedures in which the purpose of and criteria for the review are clearly analyzed and stated. This document discusses the educational product review process in terms of: (1) types of reviews, (2) special issues about criteria, (3) problems with evidence, (4) types of selection criteria including need criteria, intrinsic quality, practicality and effectiveness, and (5) practicality of reviews. This is the third publication of an EPIE (Educational Products Information Exchange) project investigating the criteria used to select instructional materials. (Author/STS)
