Alberta Dept. of Education, Edmonton.
Designed to assist teachers in identifying quality software, this guide provides software evaluation forms and associated evaluation criteria to aid in completing the forms. The two-part instrument is used in the evaluation process conducted by Alberta Education, which involves the Program Development Division and the Computer Technology Project's Clearinghouse. A brief overview describes this process and the instrument itself, which consists of a program evaluation form and a disk evaluation form. Specific instructions and criteria are then provided for completing each section of the form. Under program evaluation, subsections cover program objectives, contents, instructional design, and technical design. The disk evaluation form includes source information, required hardware and software, management system, and ease of use. Also included are guidelines for making recommendations, the necessary features of tutorial/drill programs, definitions, and a glossary of terms. (LMM)
