A 5-Point Framework for Evaluating Instructional Intent in a Slide

I’m mostly doing this for me and as an analysis of what I do for my job. I started with the idea: how do I know an instructional slide is a useful one? Copy/graphic issues aside, my primary concern is whether there’s any value to creating the slide in the first place. What purpose does the slide serve in the overall context of the training? What purpose does the slide serve on its own? I call this the “instructional intent”; i.e. what is the instructional intention of this slide.

So, I constructed this rubric/framework to judge instructional intent in an individual slide. I’d say that a slide that evaluates to less than an 7 should be workshopped.
