  • 1. TECH4102 Evaluation in Educational Technology Dr. Alaa Sadik Department of Instructional & Learning Technologies [email_address]
  • 2. TECH4102 Evaluation in Educational Technology Week 4 Models of Evaluation in Educational Technology
  • 3. Before Evaluation…
    • What makes quality teaching and learning?
    • What are the variables that affect technology-based learning and need to be evaluated?
    • What instruments can be used to evaluate the quality of technology-based learning and provide designers with information for improvement?
    Try to answer the following questions with your team, then share the findings with us.
  • 4. Models of Evaluation
    • A Model is a hypothetical description of a complex entity or process.
    • In educational technology, an evaluation model is used to provide a framework for selecting, evaluating and improving the learning process.
  • 5. Models of Evaluation
    • Models of Evaluation in Educational Technology.
    • Kirkpatrick’s Four-Level Model (1975)
    • Bates’ ACTIONS Model (1995)
    • EITIMI Model (1999)
  • 6. Models of Evaluation
    • Kirkpatrick’s Four-Level Model (1975)
    • A four-step model used to evaluate technology-based training as well as traditional forms of delivery.
    • Reaction
    • Learning
    • Behavior
    • Results
  • 7. Kirkpatrick’s Model: The best known model
  • 8. Kirkpatrick’s Model
    • 1. Reaction
    • It measures how well students liked the program and technology, and includes questions about:
    • The relevance of the objectives.
    • The ability of the course to maintain interest.
    • The appropriateness of interactive exercises.
    • The ease of navigation.
    • The perceived value.
  • 9. Kirkpatrick’s Model
    • 2. Learning
    • It measures students’ learning results and whether students actually learn the knowledge, skills, and attitudes the program was supposed to teach, or not.
  • 10. Kirkpatrick’s Model
    • 3. Behavior/Transfer in the Workplace
    • Attempts to answer whether or not students’ behaviors actually change as a result of new learning technology, and conducted three to six months after the program.
  • 11. Kirkpatrick’s Model
    • 4. Results
    • Measures the success of the program in terms that managers and decision-makers can understand.
    • Examples are, increased production, improved quality, decreased costs, reduced frequency of accidents, increased sales, and even higher profits or return on investment.
  • 12. Models of Evaluation
    • Bates’ ACTIONS Model (1995)
    • A generic framework developed at the British Open University to help in analyzing and selecting the appropriate technology.
    • Access
      • How accessible is a particular technology for learners?
      • How flexible is it for a particular target group?
  • 13. Models of Evaluation
    • Costs
      • What is the cost structure of each technology?
      • What is the unit cost per student?
      • What are the opportunity costs vs. other technology choices?
    • Teaching and Learning
      • What instructional approaches will best meet these needs?
      • Can the content be adapted to the technology?
      • What skills does the technology develop?
  • 14. Models of Evaluation
    • Interactivity and User-friendliness
      • What kind of interaction does this technology enable?
      • How easy is it to use and learn?
    • Organizational Issues
      • What are the organizational requirements to provide stability and support?
      • What are the barriers to using this technology successfully within the institution?
      • What changes need to be made within the organization to incorporate the technology?
  • 15. Models of Evaluation
    • Novelty
      • How new is the technology?
      • What are its technical capabilities?
    • Speed
      • How quickly can courses be created and distributed with this technology?
      • How quickly can materials be changed?
  • 16. Models of Evaluation
    • EITIMI Model (1999)
    • A three-step model considers the elements of the learning process and used for selection and evaluation of technologies to enhance the quality of teaching and learning.
  • 17. Models of Evaluation
    • EITIMI Model Elements
  • 18.
    • EITIMI Model: A Medical Course Example
  • 19. Discussion & Conclusion Lap application: Apply one of the models above to evaluate an educational technology project.
