An Evaluation of the SPIES Video Series (Strategies for Preschool Intervention in Everyday Settings).
Utley, Ginger; Qian, April; Eastmond, Nick
The Strategies for Preschool Intervention in Everyday Settings (SPIES), funded by the State of Utah in conjunction with the Center for Persons with Disabilities at Utah State University, is an attempt to orient parents and teachers of preschool children to ways of dealing with children with disabilities. The primary vehicle for providing this training is a series of six videotapes with an accompanying printed manual. This report details the methods and results of a SPIES evaluation that was conducted as a class project. Class members worked in teams to use the class-designed instruments to interview technical experts, teachers, parents, and potential learners about their reaction to these materials. The evaluation was based on the criteria of appeal, effectiveness, and user-friendliness of the written, audio, and video materials in both the English and Spanish versions. Findings are summarized and suggestions provided for each of the six videos. The appendix includes the master record of responses, sample questionnaire, and proposal for formal evaluation. (AEF)
