Abstract:

This study was conducted in January 2015 in compliance to the recommendation of AACCUP to have a research- based evaluation of the instructional materials produced by faculty of the College of Arts & Sciences, West Visayas State University.This descriptive evaluative research aimed primarily to evaluate the applicability, extent of use, and frequency of use of the materials prepared by CAS faculty. Evaluated were the sixteen (16) instructional materials developed particulary by the faculty in the four departments in the College. The data utilized in this study were taken from the results of the evaluation of the instructional materials produced during the academic year 2013-2014 which were filed in the Office of the Director of Instruction & Quality Assurance. The Instructional Materials Evaluation Form A was used as an evaluation instrument. Means and corresponding descriptions were used in the analysis of the data. The instructional materials as a whole was acceptable. Content and learning assessment were very acceptable and presentation was acceptable. The materials produced by the Biology, Filipino and Physical Science departments had very acceptable content. Those of the Social Science were acceptable. In terms of learning assessment, the instructional materials of the Filipino, Physical Science, and Social Science were very acceptable while those of the Biology were acceptable. The presentation aspect of the materials of the four departments were acceptable. Generally, the extent of use of the materials was division or provincial and the materials were sometimes used. The Filipino and Physical Science materials had regional or national circulation. Moreover, the Filipino materials were often used and the rest of the three departments were sometimes used. It was recommended that some instructional materials, especially laboratory manuals, lecture notes, teaching guides, and learning guides may still be improved especially in terms of presentation and the materials be submitted for publication at a printing press. More faculty members in the College of Arts & Sciences, as well as in other colleges in the University are encouraged to prepare instructional materials, individually or by groups; the circulation of the materials be increased; and the department chairs may include in their priorities the development of instructional materials.
