This report, the fifth in a series of six, was prepared as part of Phase II of the California Educational Technology Assessment Program (CETAP). It (1) describes the background and context of instructional video in California; (2) provides detailed profiles of the operations of each of the seven instructional television (ITV) agencies; (3) compares and contrasts the agencies on several selected important operational features; (4) analyzes the aggregated information; and (5) provides recommendations for further evaluation and study. Data collection procedures included a utilization survey to assess the perceptions about the use and effects of ITV among teachers, principals, and school district personnel; a statewide survey of media center directors in county and district offices of education to assess the level of use and value placed on the services provided by the ITV agencies; a self-assessment inventory completed by each of the ITV agencies; agency staff interviews and documents; and summaries of previously collected information about ITV agency services. Findings of this study are presented under the broad categories of: Instructional Television Regional Agencies; State-Wide Analysis of Regional ITV Agencies; Media Directors Assessment of ITV and Media Services; and California Augmentation to the CPB's "Study of the School Uses of Television and Video." Appendices include copies of the questionnaires and forms used for the self-assessment inventory, assessment of ITV and media services, and additional California- specific items for the survey.
