A Computer Based Training Program for the Development of Student Handouts and Other Training Aids.
Paquin, David C.
A computer-based training program was used to teach technical instructors at the Long Island Lighting Company how to create student handouts of textbook quality with a computer, software, and laser printer. All five learners successfully completed the course objective, which was to produce a one-page handout that contained text and graphics, following a one-on-one trial. The handouts of all five learners received the highest ratings when judged against each of the statements on an evaluation checklist developed for the project. Prior to the study, the learners were able to use the word processing (Word Perfect 5.0) and engineering-exact graphics (AutoCAD 9.0) software packages necessary in the study. The computer-based instructional program had been developed with the Summit Authoring System. Whether a learner achieved the instructional objective was determined by judging the learner's handout against the following statements on an evaluation checklist: (1) text lines are readable; (2) text lines are parallel and horizontal with the bottom of the page; (3) graphics image is clear; (4) graphics image is properly oriented on page; and (5) project was completed within 8 hours. (The document includes the instructor's guide and student's guide, a printout of the instructional computer program, and a nine-item bibliography.) (CML)
