ASSESSMENT MODEL FOR IMPROVING EDUCATIONAL CURRICULUM MATERIALS BASED ON THE DANP TECHNIQUE WITH GREY RELATIONAL ANALYSIS

Cheng-Hsiung Chen, Gwo-Hshiung Tzeng

Abstract

The core objective of the integrated curriculum of compulsory education is to “enable students to demonstrate their network-talents instead of just scoring high on independent exams.” The key to determining education reform strategies in the e-era is to establish network-competence indicators for educational behavior in primary schools. We propose a MCDM means for evaluating, comparing and improving the effectiveness of network-competence indicators in various publications that are used for teaching at the primary school level. The Mandarin Chinese teaching curriculum based on this system is provided to verify the effectiveness of our method, which may extend to other subject areas.
