Report on the Assessment of Language Laboratories.
Still, P. R.; And Others
The Ministry of Technology of England (Royal Aircraft Establishment) carried out a survey on behalf of the Department of Education and Science, designed to enable educational administrators to evaluate the more than 20 European-made, audio-active-compare language laboratories and to better determine their own educational needs. Information is given on how the survey was conducted and the findings reviewed. The facilities available with each laboratory are noted and an assessment of the technical standard of the main parameters listed. Laboratories are compared with a Ministry of Technology specification, a copy of which is contained in this report. Appendixes include a glossary of terms, a language laboratory comparison chart and individual reports, reports on each headset, and several illustrations. (Author/RL)
