Application of the 4-D Instructional Developmental Model: Development and Evaluation of an Instructional Television Program for Special Education Personnel--Choose a Curriculum Package. Final Report 51.4.
Parer, Michael S.
An instructional television program was designed to instruct 80 special education teachers in how to select curriculum packages. The program was tested to see whether 90% of the learners attained 90% of the highest possible score on questions based upon program objectives. Further, the effectiveness of the program was compared with that of a printed article that contained comparable information. Results indicated that: (1) 90% of the participants who viewed the television program learned 72% of the content and 60% learned 90% of the content which is to say that the "90/90" goal was not attained; (2) participants who viewed the television program learned significantly more than those who did not; and (3) participants who not only viewed the television program but also read the printed article did not learn significantly more than the participants who only viewed the television program.
