This subject explores the systematic attempt to examine what happens in (and as a result of) a language program. While this information will typically be used to make judgements or decisions about a program, the notion of evaluation as exploring the program, rather than judging it, will also be presented. Evaluation will be discussed through a variety of language education contexts including ESL and other language programs. The subject will focus on research designs and methods for gathering and analysing data appropriate for the evaluation of language programs or projects, and on understanding debates about the nature of such evaluation. Both quantitative and qualitative approaches to evaluation will be considered.
A written class paper of 2000 words 40% (to be presented during the semester) and an essay of 3000 words 60% (due at the end of semester).
