The suggestion has previously been made that an instructional multimedia (IMM) application will support learning to the extent that it offers support to user performance speed, memory, effort, comfort, content and course management. (Thomas, 1998). An instrument based on this model was then proposed (Thomas, 1999). A preliminary study using the qualitative measures of the model is presented in this paper. Subjects evaluated an interactive multimedia application to teach children how to draw. The results indicate that users were quite consistent in their evaluation of the application and that these opinions did not change a week later, after discussions of good design principles. The only exception was a change in the perception of the support of memory provided by sound.
