Development and Validation of a Booklet in Educational Research: A Supplementary Material for Filipino Teacher Education Students




content validity, elementary education, pre-service teachers, research and development, teacher education


With the recent revitalization of the teacher education programs in the Philippines, along with the implementation of outcomes-based education, the teaching of research among pre-service teachers has been a challenge for teacher educators to achieve expected outcomes and competencies. Through this research and development study, a booklet for undergraduate teacher education research was developed and subjected to validation by experts and intended users from a state-run university in Central Luzon, Philippines. Its paramount aim is to further intensify and deliver a more efficient and effective teaching and learning method for undergraduate research subjects through this supplementary learning material. The developmental process was guided by the analysis-design-development-implementation-evaluation (ADDIE) model. Results indicated that in general, instructional materials in undergraduate research are slightly available and slightly adequate as perceived by the respondents. There is also a need to develop a booklet specifically on topics under research methodology. The 4E x 2 model was adopted as an instructional design. Expert validators confirmed that the booklet was very much acceptable in terms of adequacy, coherence, appropriateness, and usefulness. The pre-service teachers evaluated the material, its modules, and lessons with much acceptability. Considering these, the validated material as an output of the study could serve as a potential supplementary material to facilitate learning critical content in educational research among intended users. Further review may be initiated, and mass testing of the material is recommended.
