The ADDIE Model - Analyze

Analyze is the first phase of ADDIE ISD model. However, as with all phases of ADDIE, analysis can be done anywhere in the process. In the analysis phase an instructional developer must identify needs, objectives, content and analyze the audience by asking several questions.

The ADDIE Model - Design

Design is the second phase of ADDIE ISD model. In the design phase, developers need to get specific about the different elements of the project or instruction. In this phase developers ask questions like:

Site Design. Yale Web Style Guide maintains a very nice article and list of resources to site design.
Instructional System Design - Design Phase. This page is maintained by Donal Clark. It provides a really nice outline about the design phase of instructional design.

What skills exactly should the audience have? Once the analysis is complete the goals of the instruction should become apparent through the objectives. Objectives are a very important part of instruction. The objectives should be short, specific and testable.

Objectives. This page has a really good description of classifying and writing objectives and links to useful worksheets to use when designing objectives.
How to Write a Goal. This page provided by Texas A&M College Station, College of Agriculture and Life Sciences provides guidelines to help make goal writing easier.
Goals and Objectives. The University of Texas at Austin provides information, examples, exercises and links to additional resources for writing effective and meaningful goals and objectives.
Writing Educational Goals and Objectives. Pennsylvania State University provides an intuitive page of guidance, checklists and examples for writing goals and objectives.

What media, resources and materials will this project involve?Objectives will determine the instruction content. In this phase of ISD the developer will create an outline of the instruction or project. The outline will provide the tasks, strategies and sequencing of the project or instruction.

Decide How You Will Communicate Performance Expectations to Students, Parents, and Others Who Are Interested. How will you convey the expected lesson outcomes. This page provides a guide for this decision in the process.

Now is a good time to begin to think about practice, feedback and assessment. These activities are important aspects to effective instruction and should involve thorough consideration. The developer should indicate the type of practice, feedback and assessment the project will require.

Assessment, Assessment Rubrics and Evaluation Guidelines. A very useful page listing assessment tools for varied assessment types.

The ADDIE Model - Development

Development is the third phase of ADDIE ISD model. However, as with all phases of ADDIE, the development phase can be done anywhere in the process. In the development phase, developers make the decisions of “how” to do the project. In this phase the developer is not asking questions anymore they are answering them.

Instructional Activities. This page is developed and maintained by the Florida Gulf Coast University. It provides priciples, practices and examples for applying the various activities to make online instruction meaningful.
Introduction to Development. This document is actually a chapter from the U.S. Coast Guard Academy’s course designer course. This chapter discusses the development phase.
ADDIE - Develop. This site is developed and maintained by Idaho State University and provides an excellent overview of ADDIE. This page is about the activities that go on during the development phase.
Instructional System Design - Development Phase. This page provides a good outline and links to additional resources about the development phase of instructional design.

Specify step-by-step plan of action of the proposed project and how learning will take place. In the design phase the developer created an outline that identified the tasks, strategies and sequencing of the project or instruction. In the development phase this outline will turn into specific step-by-step details.

Sequencing Instruction. This document describes a variety of sequencing models.
Instructional Strategies. This page provides useful information and resources about how to choose an instructional strategy.

The ADDIE Model - Implementation

Implementation is the fourth phase of ADDIE ISD model. However, as with all phases of ADDIE, implementation can be done anywhere in the process. This is he phase where everything comes together and the intended audience receives the project or instruction. Planning for implementation is important. After all the analysis, design and development the team has done so far it would be terrible if the instruction or project fails due to poor implementation.

Implementation. This page is provided by Idaho State University. It provides an overview of the Implementation phase of ADDIE.
E is for e-Learning Implementation. A free tool to make school, activity and class calendars and to allow educators and their students to communicate and interact online.

Prepare Learner Environment. Ensure the workstations have the appropriate access to the newly developed instruction or project and that users are provided with logins and passwords to gain access if necessary. Check that there are enough materials or handouts and that the “easily overlooked” issues are resolved, like enough seating, comfortable temperature, proper lighting and etc. Last but not least ensure there is plenty of technical support!

Universal in this context means adapting physical spaces and objects to consider the needs of people with disabilities and make them more accessible and useful for all people.

The ADDIE Model - Evaluation

Evaluation is technically the fifth and last phase of ADDIE ISD model. However, evaluation is actually an ongoing activity that is conducted throughout all the phases. In the analysis phase evaluation was to determine if there was a problem or there is an existing solution. In the design phase, the objectives are evaluated to determine the type of project or instruction.

The project is routinely evaluated by the developers and testers to ensure it is meeting the requirements.

Kinds of Data. This document provides a brief overview of data types and definitions.

Did the instruction work?Evaluation consists of two types, formative and summative evaluation. Formative evaluation is part of each proceeding phase and determines effectiveness and quality of each stage. Summative evaluation consists of tests for criterion-related referenced items. In addition, summartive evaluation provides opportunity for feedback from the users and assesses learner outcomes. Summative evaluation is the type of evaluation performed in this phase of ADDIE.
