The federal government has passed laws and issued directives recognizing that information is a valuable national resource. To help assure that Air Force information managers are capable of implementing policy in support of such laws and directives, the Secretary of the Air Forces Directorate of Information Management SAFAAI directed a team from the Air Force Institute of Technology AFIT to design and construct an exportable course to provide an overview of information resources management IRM concepts and principles. Such an IRM overview course was completed in the Summer of 1994. The authors evaluated this course quantitatively and qualitatively. During a pilot administration of the course, the authors used a quantitative measurement instrument and a pre-testposttest research design to assess effectiveness of the instructional system. The authors also gathered feedback from students and instructors to provide a summative evaluation of the course as a whole. Based on test scores and qualitative feedback, the authors concluded that the course did provide a useful overview of IRM concepts and principles. Additionally, they were able to recommend several changes to the course presentation, content, and measurement instrument.
