Hi-Res Electronic Design. Courseware Evaluation for Vocational and Technical Education.
Turner, Gordon; And Others
This courseware evaluation rates the Hi-Res Electronic Design program developed by Avant-Garde Creations. (The program--not contained in this document--is designed to determine closure and area of a survey.) Part A describes the program in terms of subject area (schematic diagrams and symbols) and hardware requirements (Apple II, color monitor, data disk, and mouse, paddle, or joystick), indicates its suitability for use in grades 9-12, and gives a time estimate (45 minutes and up). Availability information includes backup and preview policy 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. Yes ratings were given for subject matter, technical presentation, student interaction, and application programs; somewhat for documentation and work behaviors; program interaction and student evaluation were not applicable. Reviewers noted that the program uses graphics well to teach symbols and makes schematic diagrams easier, but that printing is difficult and documentation weak. The program is recommended as unique, but awkward to use. (SK)
