MetadataShow full item record
This thesis research examines the effectiveness of a newly developed cognitive and pedagogical evaluation framework to assess computer-based instruction. All training programs must have comprehensive evaluation guidelines in place to ensure the quality of instruction from the classroom -training environment to the virtual training environment is not diminished. The application of sound cognitive and pedagogical principles helps ensure that an organization's training goals will be met. This research developed a set of practical guidelines, or a template, that should be used to evaluate the cognitive and pedagogical aspects of any given computer delivered course of instruction. This template is used to evaluate the United States Navy's newly developed CD-ROM Surface Warfare Officer (SWO) training course. The SWO course is the basic professional training for junior Ensigns that is now contained on CD-ROM and delivered by personal computer.
