Who Am I? Self-Exploration Series 1. Courseware Evaluation for Vocational and Technical Education.
Miller, Sandra; And Others
This courseware evaluation rates the Who Am I? program developed by Instructional Enterprises. (This program--not contained in this document--is an interactive guidance course including four inventories students use to learn more about themselves.) Part A describes the program in terms of subject area (personal development) and hardware requirements (Apple II series), indicates its suitability for use in self-evaluation for students in grades 7-12, and gives a time estimate (30-40 minutes). Availability information includes cost ($39.95), backup and preview policies, and contact address. Part B contains the evaluation criteria in eight categories; reviewer ratings appear as yes, somewhat, no, and not applicable, with explanatory comments. Part C summarizes the evaluation. This courseware was rated yes for subject matter and technical presentation; somewhat for student and program interaction, student evaluation, and documentation; work behaviors and application programs were not applicable. The program's strengths are important subject matter and good student involvement. Weaknesses include limited explanation of interpretation of results and few follow-up suggestions. The program is recommended for use with teacher/counselor discussion and input. (SK)
