Better Microcomputer Manuals: A Research-Based Approach
Educational Technology Volume 25, Number 9, ISSN 0013-1962
Describes two studies designed to identify and validate principles of effective microcomputer manual design. In the first, instructional science students rated design principles of four computer manuals using a computer manual checklist; in the second, instructional effectiveness of these design principles was tested by comparing microcomputer performance of users of original and new manuals.
