Examen des politiques institutionnelles d'evaluation des apprentissages et de leur mise en oeuvre: L'etat et les besoin de l'enseignement collegial en evaluation (An Investigation of the Institutional Policies of Evaluation of Learning and Their Implementation: The Status and the Needs of Evaluation in Collegial Education).
Conseil des Colleges, Quebec (Quebec).
This two-part report by the Commission on Evaluation of Quebec's Council of Colleges focuses on the progress of the province's colleges in developing and implementing legislatively mandated policies concerning the evaluation of learning. Chapter 1 identifies the 107 of 112 colleges with written policies meeting the criteria established by the Commission as of November 30, 1992, and presents the results of 67 site visits conducted to investigate the implementation of apprenticeship evaluation policies. This chapter also identifies the institutions visited and the persons and groups with whom the Commission met, and then discusses the progress of the colleges in meeting the Commission's indicators concerning the diffusion of the policy, the assignment of responsibility for implementing the policy, and the development of course plans. In addition, the extent to which the policies have become instruments for institutional development is assessed. In chapter 2, the Commission enumerates the criteria of quality to be included in learning evaluations, and proposes a set of elements that should be taken into consideration by all colleges when they revise their policies for learning evaluation. These elements correspond to three questions: Why conduct such an evaluation? Toward what should it be directed? How should it be accomplished. In conclusion, the Commission presents its perspective on the work that has been conducted in this area and offers guidelines for the future. Appendixes provide tables illustrating trends in policy formation between 1985 and 1992 and provide extracts from a report by the Council of Colleges on priorities for the renewal of instruction.
