A Basic Measuring Instrumentation Training Program for New York Institute of Technology.
Urban, Edward F.
This document contains information, based on the instructional systems design model, about the development and delivery of a 10-minute video training program to teach college engineering technology students how to use a micrometer to measure to one thousandth of an inch. The students were taught the following: (1) to identify the parts of the micrometer; (2) the terminology associated with a micrometer; and (3) to read a micrometer. During the analysis portion of the project, an audience needs analysis was conducted; space and time constraints were evaluated; the number of trainees was set; the medium was selected; instructional goals were determined; a budget was prepared; and a project timeline was developed. During the design portion of the project, an instructional task analysis was performed; instructional objectives were developed; entry behaviors were defined; learning activities were sequenced; and evaluation was specified. During the development phase of the project, the video and printed handouts were developed, based on Gagne's nine events of instruction. After implementation, students completed a posttest and questionnaire, which assessed their reactions to the program and determined whether or not they had met the learning objectives. (The document includes a 23-item bibliography and appendices that contain audience analysis forms, a needs survey instrument, an instructional analysis form for scale reading, project planning forms, printed handouts, posttests, and the video script.)
