SIIA Offers Special T.H.E. Pricing for Its SBR Guide
The Software & Information Industry Association is offering a special discount of its "Scientifically Based Research: A Guide for Education Publishers and Developers" for T.H.E. Journal readers. A PDF is $95 for educators, and a hard copy or PDF version is available to non-educators for $285. If you're an SIIA member, you can download the guide for free at www.siia.net/store/describe/thes-sbr.html.
Written for the education technology and content communities, the guide, which was released last year, is intended to be a definitive reference for developers seeking to meet the federal requirement for SBR on the effectiveness of school interventions such as software products. It was produced to address the needs of the educational publishing community and the NCLB Act. The guide features more than 80 pages of definitions, models and practical answers necessary for companies to develop and implement a research agenda to inform product development, document a product's research basis and validate product effectiveness.
