A Film Evaluation Checklist to Describe Instructionally Relevant Film Characteristics: A Rater Reliability Study.
Burke, Nancy E.; And Others
A Film Evaluation Checklist, developed at the National Technical Institute for the Deaf, describes instructionally relevant film characteristics. The instrument is organized in terms of structural characteristics of the medium, modes of concept emphasis using film techniques, and organization of instructional material. Raters independently rated three captioned films repeated at three weekly sessions. Interrater agreements exceeding 70% were reached for each single viewing. It was concluded that films may be reliably and accurately rated after a single viewing. The Film Evaluation Checklist should be useful for selecting films for instructional use or identifying films with certain instructionally relevant characteristics. Appendixes include a brief history of the Visual Media Research Project, a list of project consultants and reviewers, a copy of the Film Evaluation Checklist, a copy of the Master Criterion Rating Checklist, a description of films and criterion ratings assigned to films, a rater's guide to the Film Evaluation Checklist, an outline for film rater training, tables with statistical data, and a copy of the Revised Film Evaluation Checklist.
