Abstract:

Operational analysis is defined as a part of formative evaluation, taking place while a course is in progress. Student-perceived problems, as reflected by student-initiated reports, are the source of data for this phase of formative evaluation. The self-reporting techniques can reveal individual differences in studentlearning-environment interactions which are not obtainable or are difficult to obtain by other means. The individual students perceptions can then be used to improve the instructional program. This technique report is described and some applications of the data for administrative purposes are discussed. The administrative staffing for the IMPACT operational CAI courses is described.
