L'evaluation des politiques institutionnelles d'evaluation des apprentissages. Rapport synthese (The Evaluation of Institutional Policies of Evaluation of Learning. Synthesis Report). 2410-0520.
Lindfelt, Bengt, Ed.
In accordance with provincial educational regulations, Quebec's community colleges have adopted "politiques institutionnelles d'evaluation des apprentissages" (PIEA), or institutional policies of the evaluation of learning. This report provides a synthesis of evaluations of the PIEA conducted by the province's Commission on the Evaluation of Collegiate Teaching. Following a brief introduction to the PIEA and their function, components of effective policies according to the Commission's criteria are reviewed in four main sections. The first section focuses on the formulation of clear goals and objectives in effective PIEA, indicating that objectives serve both to guide evaluation processes and to improve the quality of evaluations. The second section examines the methods of implementing evaluation policies, focusing on rules establishing standards for evaluations; course dispensations, equivalents, and substitutions; the implementation of an overall evaluation for each program leading to a college-level diploma; and procedures for verifying that students have earned their diplomas. The third and fourth sections review components of PIEA related to the distribution of responsibilities and the self-evaluation of PIEA implementation. Tables showing policies judged satisfactory or entirely satisfactory by college and colleges not completing PIEA as of December 15, 1995 are appended. (BCY)
