[Materials for a Course-Related Library Instruction Program in Communication 1313 at the University of Arkansas, Fayetteville.]
Arkansas Univ., Fayetteville. Mullins Library.
These instructional materials were designed for students enrolled in Communication 1313 (COMM 1313), "Fundamentals of Communication," a course required for most curricula at the University of Arkansas. They include a library guidebook ("Guide to Mullins Library" by John M. Maxstadt and others) and computer-generated assignment sheets. A program which runs in CMS (with SAS and Script) contains question banks comprising 25 versions of each of the 13 questions. The program selects one version of each question at random and prints individual assignment sheets and separable answer sheets which are linked to the appropriate assignment sheets by a control number. Three assignment sheets have been included to indicate the variety in the versions of questions. Students find the answers to the questions in the library using the guidebook for reference. The assignments are graded using the corresponding answer sheets, and count as 5% of the COMM 1313 grade. Also included in this document are the "Master Plan," which gives criteria for the new question versions added each semester, the "Guide for Helping Students," which tells student assistants how to help COMM 1313 students with the assignment, the "Guide for Grading," which outlines the accepted answer variations for the short-answer questions, and the Pretest/Posttest, which is administered to determine what the students have learned.
