Instrument for Curriculum Evaluation.
Huetteman, Julie Doidge; Benson, RoseAnn
A comprehensive Instrument for Curriculum Evaluation (ICE) was developed to qualitatively and quantitatively evaluate curriculum materials. The instrument contains 115 statements for assessing 11 aspects of curriculum: philosophy, needs assessment, theme, goals, learning objectives and standards, scope and sequence, field testing, instructor materials, learner materials, learning assessment materials, and cost. A five-point Likert scale, ranging from "very poor" to "very good", is used to evaluate curriculum materials. In addition, a "not applicable" option is listed with each question to aid in accurately rating a variety of curricula for which all 11 aspects may not be included, as well as a comment section for each aspect for open-ended responses. The ICE was examined by a panel of experts for consensual validity and field tested by two groups for interrater reliability, ease of use, and effectiveness. The ICE can be used in formative and summative evaluations by assessing materials during the planning and piloting stages. It is best used with a panel of evaluators. The ICE is provided.
