Formative Research in Educational Media.
This paper distinguishes between basic research, applied research, and evaluation. Evaluation is broken down into two types: summative and formative. The limitations of formative research are presented, followed by a discussion of the value of the formative researcher participating in the product planning process. The types of data which formative researchers can give to development teams are indicated, along with the responsibilities of the development team in the formative research process. (Author/DAG)
