Evaluation of the Material Aspects (Printing) of Instructional Materials (12-8048A)

This booklet deals with the evaluation of the material aspects of school textbooks submitted to the Minister of Education for approval. The criterion selected for evaluating these aspects is quality. This is broken down into four elements: durability of the cover and binding of the student's textbook, suitable presentation of the material, access to information, legibility of text and clarity of illustrations.

Definitions, examples and points for analysis are determined for each element in order to guide the evaluators through the evaluation procedure and to enable them to identify the strong points of the instructional materials as those areas where they could be improved.
