Solutions Unlimited: Evaluation of Prototype Units 1 and 3. Research Report 89.
Agency for Instructional Television, Bloomington, IN.
Solutions Unlimited is a computer/video project developed by the Agency for Instructional Television (AIT) in collaboration with a consortium of state, provincial, and local education agencies. The goal of the project is to improve the problem-solving skills of students in grades 6 through 8 through the use of brief instructional television vignettes and related microcomputer courseware. It will include eight lessons, each consisting of a brief video stimulus, a computer program, student worksheets, and a teacher guide. This report details the methods and findings of an extensive field study of prototype materials for lesson 1 ("Hey, Wait! Think, See, So?") and lesson 3 ("Time Management"). A total of 34 target-age students and 5 teachers participated in the evaluation. Synopses summarize the findings, pinpoint problems for each lesson, and offer recommendations for improving the courseware. Appendices include the lesson 3 observation form and teacher questionnaires for both lessons, with results and comments included on the forms. (Author/THC)
