Evaluating Computer and Web-Based Instruction

There are two different approaches

to the evaluation of computer and

web-based instruction:

1. Assessing the learners

2. Assessing the program


Slide2 l.jpg

Assessing the Learner

Kirkpatrick’s Four Levels of

Evaluation:

1. Reaction

  • Participants initial reactions --

  • satisfaction and perception of value

  • Measured with surveys and focus groups

2. Learning

  • Measured by criterion-referenced test --

  • the criteria are course objectives

3. Transfer

  • The amount of material participants use

  • in everyday work 6 weeks to 6 months

  • from now

  • Measured with tests, observations,

  • surveys and interviews

4. Business Results

  • The financial impact of the course on

  • the bottom line of the organization

  • 6 months to well into the future

  • Can be assessed by tracking business

  • measures, observations, surveys and

  • qualitative measures -- difficult!

Assessing the Program

1. Instructional Design

  • Are objectives clear? What will

  • learners be able to do after they run

  • the program?

  • Does the content reflect the objectives?

  • Is there a target audience?

  • Instructional approach:

Does it achieve the objectives?

Does it match the target audience ?

2. Interactivity

  • Are there a variety of interactions

  • available?

  • Does the learner make important,

  • meaningful responses?

  • Does the learner receive feedback?

How often?

If questions are involved, are they relevant

to what was presented?

Is it clear how to respond to questions ?

Is corrective feedback supplied with the

questions?

3. User Control

  • Are program’s controls easy to find

  • and use?

  • Is it easy to navigate from one screen

  • to another?

  • Can users choose a variety of paths

  • through the program?

  • Is there an exit option available?

  • Is there other aids to navigation such

  • as course maps and instructions?

  • Overall, do learners feel in charge of

  • their learning?


Slide7 l.jpg

4. Motivation

  • Does the program get the learner’s

  • attention and maintain it?

  • Does the program inspire confidence

  • or does it make the learner feel lost

  • or frustrated?

  • Does the learner feel challenged?

  • Does the program use a variety of

  • techniques (novelty, questioning,

  • humor, game elements, etc.) to keep

  • the learner engaged?

5. Aesthetics/Tone

  • Does the program’s physical design

  • “fit” with its instructional purpose?

  • Is the program appealing to both

  • eyes and ears?

  • Does it otherwise meet principles of

  • good design?

  • Does the program avoid being trite,

  • condescending, pedantic and so on?


Slide9 l.jpg

6. Choice of Media

  • Does the program effectively employ

  • all the different media it uses?

  • Is the combination of media used

  • appropriately and effectively?

  • Is the gratuitous use of these media

  • avoided?

7. Absence of Flaws

  • Is spelling and grammar correct?

  • Do all controls work?
