This study develops and evaluates an interactive multimedia courseware in Elementary Statistics for the students of the College of Saint Benilde. The development and evaluation of said modules followed the model proposed by Hannafin and Peck (1988). A similar model by Alessi and Trollip (1991), provided the detailed steps that guided the researcher through each phase. There were four phases, namely, needs assessment, design, development, and implementation. In the needs assessment phase, information on expected students' characteristics, current competencies, and needs were gathered to clarify the appropriate content and methodology of the lessons. The result became the basis for formulating the objectives for each module of the courseware. The design stage included the collection of resource materials, learning the content, and generation of ideas while the development stage involved flowcharting, storyboarding, programming, and production of support materials. Test versions of the courseware and the support materials were then deployed to different sites for evaluation in the implementation stage. The courseware and the support materials were tested thoroughly. However, testing here does not refer to the ability to produce desired educational outcomes but to the evaluation of program execution. This type of evaluation enabled the researcher to watch prospective users use the program and pinpoint areas that are in need of revision.

The quantitative analysis of data obtained from the responses made by the reviewers on questions related to different aspects of the courseware showed that Vital Statistics possesses the qualities of a good computer-based courseware. The mean analysis performed on the evaluation ratings indicated that attention to instructional, cosmetic, curriculum and programming adequacy are often, if not always, sufficient. Lastly, the Krustal-Wallis test performed showed that the ratings given by the four groups of reviewers are not significantly different.
