Instructional Design Standards

The Office for Victims of Crime (OVC) Instructional Design Standards (PDF, 429 KB) establish the processes that OVC grantees must follow in the development of OVC-funded trainings. The Instructional Design Standards are based on the ADDIE (analysis, design, development, implementation, and evaluation) approach to developing training. The ADDIE model was developed in the early 1960s and is widely used today to develop trainings for the U.S. military, government agencies, and businesses. This model is a generic, systematic, step-by-step process that OVC grantees will apply to OVC-funded trainings to help ensure that:

  • The trainings are based on the needs of the participants.
  • Participants achieve the goals of the trainings.
  • The trainings are delivered in a consistent manner each time it is offered.
  • The effectiveness of the trainings can be evaluated using specific, measurable outcomes.
