Assessing the Impact, Benefits, Limitations and Costs of Computer Innovations in Education: A Retrospective Case Study Approach. Final Report.
Hunter, Beverly; And Others
This qualitative assessment of computer-based innovations found in current educational programs across a variety of academic institutions was designed to help administrators and faculty of educational institutions in making decisions about the nature, scope, and magnitude of computer facilities and learning materials that could benefit their institutions, as well as to assist government planners in determining what computer innovations could be adapted to particular educational settings and goals. The report includes explanations of how candidate institutions were identified and chosen, a discussion of data gathering techniques used, a list of procedures used to identify and examine 107 "exemplar" institutions, and the processes used for selecting 21 of these institutions for further in-depth case study analyses. Observations and recommendations regarding case study methodology and specific areas of assessment are also provided. (Author/MER)
