ADDIE Model - Evaluation is one of the Phases of the ADDIE
of Computer Literacy Course was an evaluation project
done to check for the helpfulness of instructional strategies
and the usefulness of instructional content taught in the
of the Evaluation Project
The participants in the evaluation were the students, instructors
and coordinator of the course EDT 321. 444 students of EDT
321 were surveyed and 25 students from five different classes
were interviewed in five focus groups . All the 11 instructors
teaching this course were surveyed. Five instructors were
interviewed. The co-coordinator of the course was interviewed.
Five classes were observed and the course material was analyzed.
The quiz and midterm scores were analyzed to find the students
performance on different topics taught.
the survey and interview results, it was found that all the
topics taught were useful to the students. The student’s
confidence level in the skills taught has increased at the
end of the semester compared to the beginning of the semester.
Among the different teaching strategies used, hands on projects
and inclass activities were found to be more helpful to the
students, where as the research forums and the ITF modules
were not helpful at all. The lectures with the powerpoint
presentation were considered to be too long, and the quizzes
very detailed. Some of the projects such as excel and webpages
needed more demonstrations than lectures. More of collaborative
activities were preferred to make the classes more interesting.
On the whole, the entire instructional material was liked
by both the students and the instructors, but some suggestions
were made for improvement.
