1980 Multi-Media Evaluation Report.
Nystrom, Lois J.
Over a 12-month period, urban, suburban, and rural (non-farm) educational programs in Connecticut were evaluated to determine the quality of instructional materials in those programs. Evaluation data were collected from statistical summaries, predictive instruments, teacher reactions, student reactions, in-depth studies, evaluation seminars, and observations. Materials covered in the report are divided into two categories: 16mm films (363 titles) and building level materials (145 items), including filmstrips, kits, records, cassettes, study prints, slides, models, and overhead transparencies from 42 commercial distributors. Evaluative data for all types of media are presented in the form of composite sheets which draw together, average, and/or enumerate information collected from users of the materials. Representative teacher comments and samplings of student comments are included. In addition, recommendations for the use of the report, guidelines and procedures for preparation of data sheets, and indicators to quality of products are given. (Author/MER)
